My Pictures Are Perfect: Blogtober14

So all of the pictures I post are 100% perfect, that is why the only editing I have to do is maybe a crop within the Instagram app itself.  

Ok, I lied, obviously.  Well in all seriousness-I don't edit any of my pictures (and I'm sure it shows) except for maybe making it black and white, using the filter on my iPhone camera itself.

I'm a huge, huge fan of Instagram.  It is my favorite form of social media.  It allows me to do two of my favorite things-document my life and tell a story.  I just am not a fan of editing the pictures.  I don't know what I'm doing and when I make attempts I think it looks like I am trying too hard.  90% of my recent pictures have not been edited-maybe early on in my Instagram days I might have used the Earlybird filter a few too many times.

When I was little, my mom told me I would be able to wear makeup when she couldn't tell I was wearing makeup.  I didn't understand that at all, until of course I learned how to apply makeup properly.  I feel the same way about editing pictures.

 I love following photographers who use their iPhone exclusively for their Instagram accounts.  Of course they have raw, natural talent well beyond what I will ever have but it inspires me to see what I can partially attempt-editing photos where it isn't obvious it has been edited.

Any suggestions for the best resources? Online classes? Websites? I would love to learn more!
