Video Pick: How a Pro Photographer and an Instagram Star Express Themselves Through Photography

We just came across this wonderful documentary by filmmaker Andy Newman called Portrait, and it focuses on two Seattle professionals who embrace photography and creativity as a huge part of their lives. At the New York Institute of Photography, we're continually hearing from our students that they take our courses because they have always had a deep passion for photography and they'd like to learn how to improve their photo-taking skills.
 
 
This short doc perfectly underscores our students' passion for expressing themselves creatively through photography. It's an activity that will grab you and never let go for the rest of your life, and it will become a way to connect every facet of who you are into one continuously flowing form of creative expression. If you're currently an NYIP student, we think you'll love this video as it reinforces your chosen path. And to those of you who might be exploring photography education, watch this video and see if you identify with either of these individuals; they follow different career paths, but photography becomes their unique intersection point. If you think photography might be your path, I encourage you to explore NYIP's courses. We've helped thousands of people - more than any other photography school on the planet - pursue their dreams.

Instagram and Social Media Food Photography Featured on Top Food Blog

With countless photos generated every day, we're deluged with images. I'm appreciative of anyone providing a way to filter and curate this amazing, never-stopping flood of photos and help deliver some sense to we who love good images. Let's take food photography, for instance. There are so many great food blogs and websites that feature excellent snaps of dishes that continually make my mouth water, but how delighted I was to find First We Feast, a more-than-food way to look at lifestyles.
Our goal is to cover not just the feasting, but everything that comes along with it. We see food as an illuminating lens into pop culture, music, travel, and more.

Check out First We Feast's Food Porn posts, featuring "The Week's Best Instagram and Social Media Photos," featuring food, of course, but also viewers windows into our culture. This is an excellent curated way to view food photography, out of all the images generated each week. Now if only we could have curated "best of" features for all different types of photography. We'll be on the lookout for such qualitative sites and will showcase them as we find them - and please share where you like to go online for photography inspiration!

From Shot to Social Media in Seconds

With the new Eye-Fi X2 Mobile SD card, you can download an app that enables you to wirelessly transfer photos directly from your camera to your iOS or Android phone quickly and easily (and without an Internet router). This allows you to share photos on the go through such social media platforms as Flickr and Instagram. Among the cool features the card comes equipped with is the endless storage mode.                       

By turning endless storage mode on, you can save your photos directly to your phone or mobile device, so that the card itself never runs out of space. Check out the instructional video below and let the shooting and sharing begin!
