WEBSTA DIARIES


WEEKEND WEBSTAPICK #13
“I enjoy seeing photos that communicate even the most mundane subjects and given a fresh twist and new perspective, something that can put a smile on our face and brighten up our day. Just one look and you’ll understand why I have chosen this as my Webstapick winner. It stands out from the rest of the crowd; unique and inspiring, capturing something as ordinary as a tree-lined path and giving it that fresh twist. Lurza has a keen eye for these infrared shots, and this shot is just the icing on the cake.” - @seoulite121 on why he chose @llurza​'s photo.
On a weekend, we give past Webstapick winners a chance to take on the role of Guest Pickers (or guest judges). 
This weekend’s Guest Picker is Jovi (@seoulite121) living in Seoul, South Korea.
More About Our Guest Picker 

1. What/who inspires you? 
I find inspiration in many places… seeing other people’s photos and creativity really gets my imagination working. I find inspiration in the everyday; the grind, the humdrum of everyday life, I find inspiration in my travels. And what I find most wonderful about Instagram is that I can pass on that inspiration; if I can capture something that inspires me and share it, I may also have the opportunity to inspire others who see my photos as well.




2. What kind of photos/videos do you like to take? 
I am fascinated by architecture and its geometric lines, symmetry, curves, and perspective and enjoy the challenge of capturing them.
3. Favorite photo or video editing apps
My primary photo editor is Snapseed… simple and intuitive. I can’t imagine editing with anything else! I often use this in combination with other editing tools such as PicFX, and Stackables for their filters.
4. Favorite Instagramers 
It’s hard for me to pick just one Instagramer - it’s like picking a favorite flavor in an ice cream parlor; they’re all delicious!
5. Are you part of any photo community on Instagram?
I am an active member of several photo communities, namely @arkiromantix @art_chitecture_ @diagonal_symmetry @jj_juststructure @ic_architecture @jj_geometry @lookingup_architecture and @artnetinstagram.

7 DIY Photography Tips Using Household Objects


WEEKEND WEBSTAPICK #06
"I loved this shot at first sight because it captures some harmony in the urban chaos. I also loved the intense colors that are in contrast with the grey because it doesn´t (make the photo) look like ‘color splash’. It looks natural. And the people in this picture look like just one person moving along the scene."  - @ovidio001 on why he chose @isma_neto's photo.

More About Our Guest Picker 

1. What/who inspires you? 
I like good pictures independent of styles. I think I just don´t like oversaturated pictures and images with tons of filters.
2. What kind of photos/videos do you like to take? 
I like photographing trivial moments through unusual points of view, as well as the unnoticed geometry of everyday.




3. Favorite photo or video editing apps
I always capture my pics with the native camera app. To edit I use mostly Snapseed and sometimes Photo Editor. (I´m an Android user so I´m not sure if they are available on iOS). After the last update, the edit functions of Instagram became much more interesting too. And there´s one more thing: TouchRetouch. This app is some kind of magic and allows you to remove unwanted objects from your picture.
4. Favorite Instagrammers 
It´s one of my faults… I don´t (have any favorite Instagrammers). But I could recommend @reuters, as one of the must-follows in Instagram. It´s not a proper Instagrammer, but a selection of great pictures of many photographers around the world.



5. Are you part of any photo community on Instagram?
No. I am a lone rider… hehehe… Actually, my community are my friends from around the world that I have made via Instagram. Friends that have fun watching my shots.

WEEKEND WEBSTAPICK #05
"I immediately fell in love with this shot. The soft colour scheme and light is a real treat for the eye and the composition is just great. But most of all I find the mood amazing. It makes me feel happy :-)"  - @gittestark on why she chose @liv_jess's photo.
On a weekend, we give past Webstapick winners a chance to choose a winning photo. 
This weekend’s Guest Picker is Gitte (@gittestark).
Gitte Stark is from Denmark and works as a User Experience Specialist at a Danish Broadcaster in Copenhagen.
More About Our Guest Picker 

1. What/who inspires you? 
First of all, I’m inspired by the place where I live - just at the “edge” of Copenhagen where modern architecture meets nature. But travelling to, or exploring new areas, also inspires me. 
2. What kind of photos/videos do you like to take? 
I take all kinds of photos actually, but I do have a thing for architecture, nature and bikes. 




3. Favorite Instagrammers 
I can’t single out a specific Instagrammer – I do have a handful of favorites though. Each with his or her own style and theme. As you can tell by my more than 1000 followings, I think there are so many splendid Instagrammers out there.



4. Favorite photo or video editing apps
Snapseed is my one and only app for basic editing and sometimes I like to add VSCO’s presets. It all depends on what mood I am trying to convey with my photo.
5. Are you part of any photo community on Instagram?
I participate in Instawalks and other events arranged by @igersdenmark on a regular basis, and have made a lot of friends in the community because of this.
