Today I was bored so I thought I would download one of my older photos taken with my D300s and edit with Instagram on my iPhone. Instagram is a free app that has filters that you can apply to any photo on your iPhone. You can also take photos with the app and then it allows you to upload them to flickr, Posterous, twitter or Facebook. On this image I used the “Apollo” filter which gave it a bleached out, soft pastel look. Not all filters look great on all images so you have to play around to find the right one for your image. Instagram doesn’t allow you to tweak the filters, like changing the saturation or contrast, but it’s built in schematic is quite nice. I can usually find a filter that works for any image. Overall I really like this app and it’s free!
