Trip to New York City // Instagram | iPhone photography app review

Grand Central in ManhattanThis past weekend Shawn and I went to New York City to shoot with Bombshell Clothing. The last time I shot for Keriann was so awesome that I had to go to NYC to work with her again, but I'm saving all that for another post. This post will be reviewing the Instagram iPhone app. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I have to say it is super addicting!

Very meta.The cool thing about Instagram is that you can upload your photo directly to Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Facebook, and Foursquare. Yes, you can even check in on Foursquare with this app. For me personally that is the feature that really sold me on this app.

You have twelve effects you can choose from. Once you pick the effect you like, you click next and it gives you the sharing options.

Another cool feature of Instagram is you can follow your friends and see their photos taken with Instagram within the app. You can also "like" and comment on their photos within the app. You can also check out the popular photos taken with Instagram and find cool new people from all over the world to follow.

So why did I bring up my trip to New York? I used the Instagram app all weekend to check into Foursquare and to take photos of the city. Here are a bunch of photos I took around Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
