I was honored to be part of an amazing panel at SXSW last week that included  Kevin Systrom Founder & CEO Instagram, Kristen Joy Watts, Sr Content Strategist, Mobile & Social Platforms Group R/GA and Verna Curtis Curator of Photography in the Prints & Photographs Division at the Library of Congress.

Panel description:
Over 100 million photos are uploaded to Facebook every day. There are 3.5 billion cameraphones in use around the world. Instagram reached 13 million users in just 13 months. We are nearing the end of what Philip Gourevitch of The New Yorker called “the decade in which the world went camera-mad…the decade where everything is depicted, and every picture must be shared.”This panel will address the many ways in which the rise of mobile photography is affecting how we express our creativity, and how we connect and communicate every day. BONUS: We’ll conclude with @Koci explaining how he builds his images and sharing a recipe toolkit for audience members to build their own.  #sxsw #photomad http://schedule.sxsw.com/2012/events/event_IAP10645

 

It was exciting to close the panel with a 10 minute tutorial on how I ‘work-up’ an image before posting to Instagram. I re-recorded the my little ‘app dance’ for you to see, I hope you enjoy, more lengthy tutorials on the way!

 

I also promised to share screen shots from my phone that show the photography apps I have installed, so as promised, here you go:

Here is a list of my absolute favorite apps that I can’t live without:

 

Here is an excerpt of the panel I found on youtube:
