Instant Photography

There’s always been something interesting about instant photography. That instantaneous excitement of seeing a finalized photo right before your eyes. Instant gratification = the world we live in today. A growing medium for some time now has been the instant photography apps available on smartphones and a growing number of people are using these apps as their main tool in photography. The fact that they can instantly upload a photo and share it with the world certainly makes it appealing.

Via the Lens blog today, I read about one such photographer, Richard Koci Hernandez, who has gained a significant following for his Instagram photography on the iPhone.

Low-fi photography such as various Lomography cameras and the instant Polaroids have been popular as a means of a different approach to photographing the world for a while now, so it should probably come as no surprise that the apps available for phones today have become the new, advanced way to do this while creating images that have the same effect as an original Polaroid or Lomo photo.

The interesting thing about Hernandez, however, is that he uses Instagram truly as a means of visual expression rather than taking random snapshots. You can check out his work on Flickr.
