It’s finally time for another edition of Instapicks! I unfortunately had to skip the month of April, not for lack of breathtaking Instagram posts, but because I was out of the country and selfishly not keeping up with my blog. But do not worry, today I am again looking back on the posts I liked the absolute most from the month of May 2015: Sharp shadows and cloudy skies, paradoxically.
Instagram Favourites from May 2015
The way that Sarah Waiswa plays with colours and shadows shows her incredible skills in manipulating light in her colourful compositions. Something about this post just stuck with me. Check out her page for some amazing captures from the coolest African urban scenes.
Paul Octavius is like a breath of fresh air in the Instagram community. Sure, he often posts stuff that typically fits into the ‘Instagram genres’, but, somehow, he always adds a pinch of his own original vision on visuality. His captures just feel like they’re alive, breathing with a beating heart.
There is something so calming about Matsumoto Kazuo’s no-nonsense Instagram feed. His photos are free of clutter. Whether it’s a quiet section of a rainy cityscape or the colourful leaves on an autumn tree, I always feel compeletely zen when I scroll through Matsumoto’s captures.
If you want to enjoy the messy, colouful, and cool vibes of urban life around the world, check Vivien Liu’s Instagram account. She especially excels at showing city infrastructure from extremely original and artful angles.
Lastly, Sean Flanigan does a lot with wedding photography, but does it in a way that only a few can pull off. His obsession with negative space gives his portraits an authentic feeling that is nearly impossible to reproduce.
