If you're new to the world of mobile photography you might be asking yourself, "What is Instagram?" Well, basically, Instagram is an application that you install on a mobile device like an iPhone or an Android tablet and it allows you to take a photo, edit that photo using some really cool filters, and then post that photo online to share with your friends across multiple social networks. But Instagram isn't just another photo sharing app. There is actually a whole worldwide community dedicated to Instagram and expanding it in multiple ways. With these community efforts users now have the ability to have online Instagram profiles, track their stats, integrate Instagram into their website or blog, and even have their Instagram photos turned into a canvas print if they want.
In addition to all that, there are even users in the community who organize meet-ups and training sessions around Instagram. This allows you to meet fellow Instagram users, learn their workflows and techniques and share your workflow as well. The bottom line is that when you join Instagram, you're joining a community. It's a fun community and the sky is literally the limit when it comes to what you can do with it and how fun you can have.
