Taking pictures with my smartphone frees me and limits me. The settings are basically automatic and the phone is light and easy to carry around. On the other hand, I cannot really enlarge the image because the quality is not so great. What I can do though, is upload the image immediately to Instagram and my followers and the public at large will see it almost in real time. Besides the immediacy of the medium, the signature square format online is also reminiscent of the old Polaroid images. An extra feature of the platform is the many filters which give the images immediately a different feel. This way of taking photographs comes close to play for me. I am not thinking too much about what it is supposed to be and where it needs to go. Whatever catches my eye, I will give it a shot!
