Instagram is primarily meant to be a mobile app and, if you can, you should use the Instagram app to upload photos.
Some users love to do everything on their computer or laptop, so here is a list of workarounds on how to post on Instagram from PC or Mac. Instagram doesn’t approve of using third party apps for upload so don’t be surprised if a solution stops working. I will try to keep this list up to date with only working apps.
If you don’t have an Instagram account you can signup on their website.
If you’re just having an issue getting photos to your iPhone or Android phone I recommend using Dropbox, AirDroid, or AirDrop to accomplish this task. Every photo I edit in Lightroom is exported to a Dropbox folder so I can easily post to Instagram with my phone. Read More →
I’ve spent years filling my Instagram account (@someguy) with beautiful photos of Washington DC. Including well known spots like the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and the Tidal Basin to less known spots in the city.
I want to share some of the best places to photograph in DC! I’ve also included some of the best times to visit specific spots.
The fastest way to get around DC is to use the Metro. You can walk to most of the spots listed by heading to the Smithsonian metro stop on the mall. To get around on the mall you can use the Capital Bikeshare but I recommend riding the metro to go to more urban areas.
Here is my list of the best places to take photos in DC:
The Washington Monument
The Washington Monument from the Tidal Basin
The most iconic and recognizable building in DC is hard not to photograph since it’s DC’s tallest building. From the Tidal Basin, steps of the Lincoln Memorial or standing right next to it, the Washington Monument looks great at all angles.
Plus you can visit the monument 24 hours of the day which makes it a great place to photograph late at night. (Currently tickets to the top are suspended until 2019)
I spent the past weekend in New York City, a place I’ve oddly spent little time in. With so much to see my good friend Phil Martin (@phil.martin) and I (@someguy) hit up some of the most iconic photo spots in the city. Since both of us love using Instagram we had to visit these top New York City Instagram spots. If you haven’t taken a trip to this incredible city be sure to stop at all of these epic sights, it is full of photo ops!
Here is my list of the best places to take pictures in NYC:
Top of the Rock
Empire State Building Lit Up Blue for Autism Awareness Day
Top of the Rock has to be one of the best skyline views of New York. The only downside is that tickets are $26 and often require a wait. We rushed to get there before sunset but sadly the first available tickets were 2 hours later, so I recommend buying tickets online.
In addition to the view of the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center you can get a great view of Central Park from the north side of the building.
