I mentioned yesterday how I am using my iPod Touch along with the Instagram app to take my Week in the Life photos.
I downloaded the app shortly after buying my iPod Touch last December but really only started using it a couple of weeks ago.
I can take photos discretely. For instance, this morning I took a photo of my laptop and chai in a coffee shop without anyone being the wiser.
I can keep my iPod Touch in my pocket to take a photo at a moment’s notice, even while pushing a shopping cart.
I use my iPod Touch when I run. This worked out great as I made a point to take a photograph during each of my runs this week.
The filters are a nice twist to this project. I am taking the kinds of photos that can be challenging to scrapbook. By keeping all my Week in the Life photos as filtered Instagram photos, I can keep a consistent theme throughout the project.
I can take photos of my sleeping daughter without waking her up.
I don’t have to change any settings when I hand my iPod Touch to my husband for him to take a photo.
It is even easier to hand my iPod Touch to my three-year-old daughter so that she can take photos.
It is really easy to take self-portraits with this camera.
Instagram is a free app.
Overall, I am happy with my choice to use my iPod Touch and Instagram to help document a Week in the Life. It is keeping it simple and low pressure. I might do something different next year, but this is working well for me.
