Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

A couple of years ago it was all about 140 characters, the trick was the getting what you wanted to say around the 120 mark so to leave room for a hashtag and RT, now the power of the word is kind of being overshadowed a little by everything visual, or should I say Instagram, and I’m kind of loving how the platform has reignited my passion for photography, thanks in part to the amazing photo editing apps that are out there. 

I know what you are thinking social media photographs aren’t an art form, probably not always from me **I’m trying**, but I do love how inspiring Instagram can be, especially when you can see the effort people are putting into getting their images just right. It really is a platform that I’m trying to take more time and effort in, it isn’t as instant as it used to be, but I think that’s the beauty of it.

Fashion Week Technology

Fashion Week Technology

I remember my first fashion week, I carried around a heavy laptop and was glued to my blackberry, there wasn’t an iPad in sight and there was no urgency for me to get my photographs edited to share with the world. Thankfully, in part, things have changed and my gadgets have got smaller, lighter and definitely a lot smarter. 

I wouldn’t dream of going to fashion week now without technology, my mobile is in constant use, my DSLR is required to snap the fashion, and each season I seem to add extra gadgets to make life easier, more productive, and most importantly to stay connected, so I’m sharing my favourite gizmos that have helped me through this season. I have everything from photography aids to charging cables and even those pieces of fashionable wearable technology that I recommend.

Wearable Tech: The Knomo Elektonista Digital Clutch

Wearable Tech: The Knomo Elektonista Digital Clutch

I’ve had many interesting debates lately regarding wearable tech, nearly everyone I have spoken to says they aren’t convinced because nearly all think that the wearable tech products out there might be useful but they are also ugly, bulky or just too geeky to even want to wear.

Generally, this talk is directed to those smartwatches, which can read your e-mails, track your fitness, and even make phone calls, obviously not on their own! But there is much more to wearable tech than watches, there are also sci-fi like glasses from Google, which totally needs a lot more work to make them cool, as well as technology embedded into clothing, and even rings that vibrant to inform you of your notifications. Basically wearable technology can be anything that incorporates functional, portable electronics and computers into your daily life, which I am totally on board with, if only technology could work with fashion more to make them appealing.

Technology: HTC One M8 Pink At Carphone Warehouse

Technology: HTC One M8 Pink At Carphone Warehouse

Way back when, one my first ever mobile phones was pink, it was of the flip variety, and I loved it, then came crazy phone covers, who could forget my love of Hello Kitty, and now it seems that smartphone companies are incorporating a little personality into the handsets themselves by offering them in various colours.

The latest to be added to my collection is the HTC One M8, which has been given a feminine makeover with a dusky pink matte shell that is exclusive to Carphone Warehouse. Everything else about the phone is the same as the original HTC One M8, a spruced update to the HTC One that I absolutely loved.
