Instagram: The Everyday Creative

We just finished our latest Instagram challenge! Thank you to everyone who joined in week after week and took time to move toward better phone photography and a thriving Instagram community!

In case you missed it, a couple month’s ago, Meg & I announced that we were bringing back our Holders Not Folders challenges! We just finished a quick, six week series, focusing on teaching you something new (or reminding you of something you already know) to integrate into your phone photography. We want to encourage you that you can create fun and inspiring photos with your phone and have a beautiful instagram that reflects YOU! Join the challenge and get creative.


Cropping & Framing

We love this Instagram community and are excited to announce we will be continuing the #holdersnotfolders challenges again starting next week! Each challenge looks a bit different, so get excited and pull out your cell phone because things are going to start getting really photogenic around here!

Check out some of my favorite shots from this last challenge in the #holdersnotfolders community! Be sure to find some new gramers to follow and share the love! This is all about community, collaboration, and creativity! Let’s encourage!
