Everyone now has the power to capture still objects, landscapes, and portraits with a piece of technology that we hold in our hands —smartphones. In fact, your phone might be capable of delivering photos and videos with the same quality as the camera in your kit bag.
Social media platforms allow us to view a range of places from anywhere around the world, and Instagram is one of these go-to apps. In addition to pictures, Instagram has expanded over the years to enable access to longer video content and even live streaming.
