Some would argue that in a way. we are all photographers these days when cameras are ubiquitous. After all, we can just pull out our phones and take an instant picture of anything we want. But there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Insta photography, although we’re pretty sure that professional photographers, those who actually went to school and got a diploma, would strongly oppose the notion that each and every one of us is a paparazzo of life.
The theme of lifestyle and especially travel, is one of the most trending themes onInstagram. Hashtag #travel, #wanderlust, #adventure and more words along those lines are being re-used on the social media platform by millions of people around the world. After all, the love for travel and the need for a vacation is the one thing people have in common, no matter where they are from in the world.
Just like different people have different traveling styles, so do photographers have different photography methods, and if they are Instagram photographers, then they use different filtering apps and techniques. It does require a different set of skills to be a social media photographer, and it sure does pave the way for those who want to become professional in that field. Either way, you need a good eye for beauty and aesthetics and that is not something many people have. We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite Instagram travel photographers that have taken their passion, inspiration and talent to social media, and the results are simply mind-blowing. We have a feeling these people have found the best job in the world, hands down.#filterneeded.
