By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show. — Samuel Johnson
It’s been a great year for Londoners. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee brought exhibitions, concerts and royal events to the city, and the Olympic Games will usher in hundreds of thousands of visitors when it kicks off this Friday, July 27th.
Want to see London for yourself? We’ve gathered together a group of our favorite users who are snapping pictures from the heart of it all.
Two years ago today, we tested the first photo upload to an app we called Codename. Three months later, in October 2010, Instagram launched to the public.
Today, 1 year and 9 months later, over 50 million people have shared more than 1 billion photos on Instagram. We’re humbled by the amazing photos shared every day on Instagram and the incredible community that’s formed around the application.
From everyone here at Instagram HQ, thanks for being part of the Instagram community!
Are you a food photo fanatic? If so, you’ve got to check out @sonyayu. Sonya is a full time food photographer in San Francisco. She serves up bird’s eye photos of gorgeously cluttered restaurant tables around the country.
Order colorful food and wait for the entire meal to be served before shooting.
Stand up on your (stable) chair to capture the grub from above.
Get the light right! Always sit by the window, avoid overhead spotlights, and never, ever use a flash - it’s food porn murder.
Not all foods are equally photogenic, but that’s not the only factor in a tantalizing food photo. The dining surface, drinks and silverware can add allure and a distinct atmosphere to even the plainest, ugliest foods.
The goal this weekend is to capture photographs of objects, people, or animals in windows.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured here on Monday morning!
