Recently on Facebook I have been sharing one of my favourite Instagram accounts every week. Here is a wrap-up of my favourites for August (and a couple of extras!)
I hope you find someone who inspires you too.
Berlin based foodstylist and photographer, Nora Eisermann & Laura Muthesius are on Instagram under the name of @_foodstories_ Their food styling is always earthy, with dark tones and beautiful woods. Every time one of their images pops up of my feed, my eye gets drawn to it. With over 300k Instagram followers, I'm certainly not the only one to discover them, but it you haven't seen them yet, they are worth a look!
Laura and Nora also have a food blog which manages to combine gluten free and vegetarian recipes for 'foodies and cake lovers'! They do all of that AND make it look beautiful! Check them out on Facebook, or online.
One of my favourite Instagram accounts is @many_makers . I LOVE the mood of this account! The colours in the feed are mainly dark tones with gorgeous greens and dusty pinks. Posting images from Wellington in NZ, you can almost feel the cool, moody weather and I find it such a lovely contrast to the typical white minimal look that abounds on Instagram.
Make sure you check out the full feed to see how the colours flow from one row of photos to the next - I promise you'll love it too!
You can find Natasha on Instagram @thesnowqueensgarden . I especially love her beautiful flowers (which come from her garden!), the lovely soft colours in her images, and her sense of style. Make sure you pop over and check out her page. She also makes some gorgeous hand-stitched dolls!
Awesome beauty is how I describe @kara_sonata. Her feed is just amazing. Seriously! I can't even put into words how much I love it, so you just have to check this one out for yourself!
@rikki_ has been the inspiration for more than one photographer (ok...I count as one, and I'm sure I'm not the only one) to get out with a water bottle and traumatise spiders by spraying their webs! I'm often amazed by the way she captures water droplets on grass and spiderwebs as well as other gorgeous macro subjects. I seriously do not know how she does it, because my attempt was an epic fail, although I may have succeeded in scaring a spider....
Doesn't she make you want to get out your macro lens?
For a bit of a creative challenge I dabble in the Fat Mum Slim photo-a-day challenge. I was doing it daily until it started to stress me out, which I figured was a bit counter-productive!
One of the people that I started to look forward to seeing was Michelle (@msmeowd) because she would do every prompt in M&M's...seriously!
Here are her photos for the prompts Car, Clouds, Fake and Logo. The funny thing is that as I was scanning her feed for shots to include here, the ice-cream one caught my eye. It turns out that her take on 'Fake' was based on an image she had seen of cupcakes made to look like Ice-creams. This was actually MY photo of my son's kindy cupcakes for his birthday. It's funny how things work out sometimes!
I would love you hear who your favourite Instagrammers are.
