Instagram Friday: Peggy's Cove

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

I thought I would start a new feature on the blog called instagram Fridays. I'm really hooked on Instagram and cell phone photography in general. We have come a long way in such a short time! The quality has improved and the apps for editing are just amazing.

My general 'workflow' for my iPhone photography is pretty minimal, or else I might as well be using my DLSR! I like to run the photos through an image editor like Snapseed first, just to give the image some extra snap by tweaking the contrast. Then it's straight into Instagram.

My favourite filter is Earlybird, the one shown here. It's a real throw back to photos I remember from my parents Polaroid camera in my youth.

This shot was taken a few weekends ago - we were out for a drive and the kids wanted to get out and hike around the rocks at Peggy's Cove - one of their favourite activities. The added bonus of winter means there aren't gaggles of tourists crowding your shot.
