The Path (MacDowell Colony Medal Day)

MacDowell Colony Medal Day, Peterborough NH

This is an Instagram shot I took during the 2012 MacDowell Colony Medal Day.  I just love this shot, despite it being an Instagram cellphone photograph.  I love the composition and the two characters walking up the path, and the way the path winds around and makes your eye follow it.  And the color.  And the "mood".

For me, it's a successful, moody picture.

Instagram! (or: the best camera is the one you have on you)

Best engineered album, by year

Having recently acquired my very first honest-to-goodness real "smartphone", I immediately installed Instagram on it to play around with, and it very quickly became my de facto camera phone posting method online.

Previously I've used all kinds of alternate image posting sites like Imageshack, Twitpic and Mobypicture for my day-to-day captures and Twitter related postings, but I gave into the Instagram craze and it's pretty much the only thing I use now when I'm taking camera phone pictures.  And I love it.  I love being able to use my camera phone to take my average day-to-day snapshots and not have to lug heavy camera bags around when I don't feel like it. It's addicting!!

Here are some shots I've taken and uploaded to Instagram.  You can check out my Instagram page here, or find me on the Instagram app under "sidceaser"

The most important thing is to just keep taking pictures.  Even if you don't have a super-duper-mega-awesome-camera with you, just make images.  Use them as compositional tools and to keep your brain active and creative.
