Your 3 favourite instagram accounts
5

I don't actually post any pictures on Instagram myself, I use Flickr, but I do have an account so I can follow some what I think are great photographers. It can be quite difficult finding the gems on IG as so many people use it, which is why I'm creating this thread. Please post your top 3 so I can add them if I like them.

Picking my top accounts was quite difficult but I didn't want to fill a page with links so I've chosen only 3.

While this photographers choice of subject is not always the most interesting, his use of colour makes his work extraordinary.

Here's a photographer that looks at the mundane and sees art. If he's using any compositional rules, I have no idea what they are.

People waiting a crosswalk has never been more interesting. Beautiful light and colour.

Yes very interesting accounts. I keep telling people that there is plenty of excellent work on Instagram, if you only put in a little work to find it and I mean very little work but the doubters are many and most don't even seem to look at the site.

Yes, I agree. Some of the work I've found on instagram is truly excellent and diverse. I also like looking at Flickr on my laptop but prefer using instagram on my phone as I think it's better laid out. However, one of the reasons I don't use it myself is because you can't upload photos straight from your computer. No idea why.

I know and that's a pain but I just tether my phone to the PC and drag them across  and then upload.

Re: Your 3 favourite instagram accounts

As someone said, there is plenty of good work on IG if you only take the time to look. Yes, there is a lot of junk, but them about 80% of what's in bookstores is junk, and the same for art galleries. While I'm out in west Texas, most of the photographers I follow are in Russia and Eastern Europe, Germany, and Japan -- work I would rarely or never see anywhere but IG.

My problem here is holding it to three -- these are from my feed this morning. I could look again this afternoon and come up with a completely different set.

Stretching a little, 3 photographers plus 3 other artists -

Black and White portraits

More portraits:

I am fascinated by the way Japanese photographers use color. This is just one of several I follow mostly for the color:

And artists in other media:

Assemblage sculpture:

With a bit of religious symbolism:

True it's difficult to choose 3. Maybe that's a stupid rule ha. Thanks for posting those. I enjoyed looking through them.

Thanks for posting these! You should use the insert link tool at the top, just makes it a bit easier to check them out. Saves copying and pasting.

I would not mention my favorite instagrammers. because they might be no use to you.

My favorite instagramers are simply those who interact my instagram account with likes and comments (let it to be praising or critics)

I do not look great photos via Instagram. I have other platforms for that. But yes here and there I stop and see some but would not follow them. My purpose of having insta is showing my work to others and getting maximum reach on the platform. Famous instagramers do not bother about my account nor posts

I don't follow them. But i have them bookmarked.  Their work is impressive

Re: Your 3 favourite instagram accounts

I cannot say I use instagram so I can only point to my daughters one

https://www.instagram.com/photobyagirsdotter/

She has recently become interested in photography so I gave her my Z6 when I purchased the Z6II (We share my lenses).

Knew very little about photography when I decided to buy the awesome Nikon D70; learned quickly that this expensive camera didn't make me a good photographer.

Here's another one. I bought the first edition of this zine and very nice it was too. I have now just paid for the second edition.
