Instagram is the social photo sharing media that is app based. I post pictures from my OM-D (via the PenPal bluetooth accessory) to my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone or Sony S tablet. The device then uploads the pics by 3G or wi-fi to the Instagram servers on the web.
There are pro and cons like, everything else. The Instagram format is square (1:1), whereas I shoot mostly in a wide (16:9) ratio previously. Some pictures that were composed for the wide format are almost impossible to crop and have to be masked and reduced to fit the square.
The good thing is I have set up this blog to automatically pull content from my Instagram account, whenever I upload a new pic. This will not only bring fresh content but also make it easier for people to view the pics and accompanying stories without using any app.

The Instagram series begins from the next post onwards. And as before, you can click on each pic to see a bigger version.
