6 inspirational Instagram accounts for better photography

Week 11.0 — 8th January '18

Following on from last week where we looked at how to take better photos I thought it was best to follow up with some inspiration. Flickr is a fantastic place to learn because of the EXIF info they make available against their photos but Instagram is the dominant platform for photo sharing so here are six accounts that are sure to get you in the mood to step up your photography game:

13thwitness' best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017
chiefsoreface's best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017
1st's best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017
imthejam's best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017
rishad's best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017
trashhand's best 9 photos on Instagram in 2017

Composition is often the toughest bit of photography but taking your camera out on the street will always a good way to test yourself. With the rise of drone photography there may not be any way for you to re-create some of the shots above, but they do serve to inspire and give you some food for thought.

I'll be featuring more Instagram and Flickr accounts every few weeks and if you'd like to suggest a candidate to be featured, let us know @1thingaweeek.
