Social media has just about taken over my life. I spend my time in two worlds online, one being my personal social media, and another being the Grey’s View. One of my favorite sites for being social is Instagram. This site is mainly used for “in the moment” photography, or photos in general. Definitely my kind of site. So I feel like I should share some of my favorite Instagram accounts (other than Grey’s View, feel free to follow, ha!). Here is my top 5 photography Instagram accounts to follow. There are so many interesting places, people, and events. On Instagram, I can see so many different places, I hope you give these five a try.
There is nothing quite like scrolling on my phone and coming across a photo that just takes my breath away. Every time I’m on Instagram, I see Natgeotravel. This is one of National Geo-graphic’s accounts. They have a few different accounts depending on the region. I have been obsessed with their content. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I share a lot of their posts. This is a travel account so there are photos from all over the world. Showing us the beauty in every corner of the world with the flick of your thumb. A must for our top 5 photography Instagram accounts.
Secondly, there is an account called Discover_Earthpix. If you love nature, landscape, and street photography, you will enjoy this Instagram account. I first checked them out a few weeks ago, and I can tell you, you wont be disappointed. They show pictures from multiple photographers from all over the world. Some of these photographers are world famous. There was a photo posted of “Dolphin Island” it’s an island that is shaped like a dolphin in Italy. It amazes me that if it were not for sites like Instagram, I wouldn’t even know that existed. Worth a spot on my top 5 photography Instagram accounts.
Thirdly, you have to check out Abandonedearth’s Instagram. Some of you may notice that I have a mini obsession with abandoned and kind of creepy locations. This account is just jaw dropping. There have been posts of deserted castles, mines, cars overgrown with moss and plants. Truly incredible photos taken by photographers from all over. Now, to land a spot on the top 5 photography Instagram accounts you have to really get my attention all the time. Abandonedearth posts all the time and it’s all kinds of images. If I don’t see any on a particular day, I will seek out their page and have a look. Worth a follow for sure!
Fourth, on our list of top 5 Instagram accounts, is Canon_photos. Now, I don’t care if you have a Nikon, Sony, ect. These photos are amazing. All of the posts from this account are taken by photographers who are using Canon cameras. I may be a little biased, since I do use Canon, but they are great photos none the less. Again, this account is a compilation of multiple photographers. Landscape and nature seem to be the majority of Canon_photos posts. Which I love, so I can’t complain. Every now and then I’ll see some really amazing photos, like of the Milky Way or sea creatures. These I always have to share, because, who doesn’t want to see them?!
Photographytips, has taken the last spot on our top 5 Instagram accounts. I have been following this account for about two months, and I always enjoy seeing what they’re posting. Sometimes, it’s photos that other photographers have taken or it’s photography tips to help you hone your skill. There was a great post about using a reflector to give more light to a subject that is not in the proper lighting. Another post showed the difference in apertures for manual settings. Really good information, I recommend this account to everyone who is learning photography.
So there you have it folks, my top 5 favorite Instagram accounts to follow. I’m sure this may change over time as new accounts come out. So I’ll update this every time my whole “top 5” have changed. I highly recommend all of these accounts for your viewing pleasure. However, I know I’m not seeing all of the incredible Instagram posts, so if you see some accounts I should follow, let me know. I’d love to hear some of your favorite Instagram accounts!
