    In this 21st century, the majority of us have started looking at the camera specs before we buy our next device. Also, the cameras on our smartphone have improved a lot since last few years. Are they any good as any DSLRs? Nope, they are not. But can we click good enough pictures on it? Yes, for sure.

    Our community has a dedicated photography section for sharing the pictures you take. If you need some tips and tricks and want to know about the creative process of some of the users here, then you should check this thread out. It would give you quite a good idea about how to use your camera and basic editing techniques. Editing is a tool for your photography which can allow you to stand out from others, so don’t hesitate to use it.

    We know that there are many users in our community who are interested in photography. So, @Ruby G. had this idea of creating a thread to inspire each other by sharing the Instagram profiles of photographers we love. You can even share some good posts which would make the users learn new things. I’m grateful to her and @Cheetosdust for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host this thread for you. Here’s a few rules before you start sharing some Instagram profiles here.

    • Please do not promote your own Instagram profiles.
    • Limit yourself to share a maximum of three profiles at once.
    • Don’t share off-topic content here.
    • Share those posts which you think would help other users improve on their photography.
    I’ll begin by sharing the profiles of those personalities whom I follow. If I have to select only three profiles, these would be my choices.

    I got to know about him when I first saw him on Casey Neistat’s video. I can still remember those cinematographic drone shots which were shown in Casey’s video and they were shot by Peter. Since, then I’m following him on YouTube as well as Instagram. He has a great collection of tutorial videos if you want to take your photography skills up a notch. Here’s a link to that:

    Peter McKinnon’s Tutorial Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTZSw2B7F_WdYHeoyrwItZvvTy3P6kOsy

    Now, I got to know about him from Peter McKinnon’s YouTube videos. I found this guy just a while back, but his shots are gorgeous. You can look at them by clicking on the link above. Also, he regularly shares “Before” and “After” images on his Instagram profile, where it clearly shows that editing plays a huge role in photography.

    If I remember it correctly, then I got to know about this guy when MKBHD tweeted out about his work. When I clicked on his Instagram link, I thought I have entered a heavenly place. I feel he is one of the best Product Photographer, if not the best. Even I got inspired from him to click some good Product shots. Also, there’s a Product Photography thread which I’ve created where you can share your clicks of various products.

    So, these are the guys who’ve inspired me to click pictures on my own. Even though they’ve used expensive cameras to shoot those pictures, but that doesn’t stop me from clicking pictures on my OnePlus 5. Instead, seeing their pictures just asks me to get up and start clicking more pictures.

    I hope seeing their work inspires you as well. And if you’ve got any photographers who inspires you, then please do share them here and inspire others as well. Also, if you come across any posts that would help people click better pictures, then share them here as well. I would be looking forward to see your recommendations here.

    Well, those were the three profiles I would recommend you seeing to get inspired and keep on doing what you do. But, I would just like to share two more profiles with you guys to drool over some more shots.

    OnePlus introduced this guy to me, not in the real life, but in this virtual life. And I liked his work and thought it to be good enough to get a mention here.

    Jon Olsson vlogs introduced this guy to me. He was not a part of that team from the beginning, but was there seeing the vlogs when he came in. And as good as he’s in handling videos, he’s also one of those good photographers I follow.

    Hello @Shivang Joshi :)

    Congratulations on the new thread, not only it's really clean and well written, it's also a great idea, I believe.

    I’m not going to write a post with 5000 words, however, I want to write this: I feel it’s a snowball. You get inspired by others, perhaps those you linked, you post something here and you inspire others.

    These forums can be seen as a train for good or bad. You, with this and other threads, are a locomotive for good. For that, my sincere thank you. For all the rest, my cheesy hug :)

    Thank you for the tag, but I really did nothing. This is all you and OnePlus - more specific @Ruby G.

    And now, let's all get inspired! :cool:

    Yes, let's get inspired :D

    That's a great idea @Shivang Joshi . This would be really helpful for a lot of aspiring photographers.
    Here's some of my inspirations
    1. Saurabh Panchmatia - I met this guy in a trek and started following him from them. In 2 years I could see his tremendous growth. He is superb at portraits. He personally even guides me about how to maintain the Instagram profile, which I think is very important.
    2. Prudhvi Chowdary - One of my friend recommended his profile. The moment I saw the profile I was totally amazed with the diversity in his pictures.
    3. Zaid Salman - I follow him majorly for his mobile photography. Totally love his creativity and makes me think " Y not with a mobile".

    I will try to update this post if I come across more inspiring profiles. Cheers to @Ruby G. and @Cheetosdust

    Hey, thaanks :)

    I hope you'll share some soon when you come across such profiles :D

    Thanks a ton :)

    I feel I'm going to learn a lot more with this thread :D Thanks for sharing these :)

    Yeah, he produces some great vlogs and clicks quite great pictures as well :)

    I can't take credits for the idea. As I've already mentioned in the main post, this idea came from @Ruby G. ;) Sure, you can check out what others post ;)

    Once again, not my idea and I can't take credits for that ;)

    Nice selection there :)

    I'll recommend you not to update this post as this post already has 3 profiles. Instead post a new message when you find some more inspiring profiles ;)

    I'll share 2 profiles I really love.
    One has a style which is close to mine, the other one is totaly different but I love it a lot.

    1 Alan Schaller

    A professional who makes some really nice streetphotography. Only black and white and I must say it works perfectly. I love how he plays with the light and captures th moments, a big inspiration for me


    2 jc copas

    A guy from Portugal who shows that a great picture can be found anywhere. Very minimal and I love it. And because he only takes these kind of shots his instagram looks amazing.


    Hope you like,enjoy and looking forward to some nice new profiles.

    He has clicked a ton of pictures using drones and I liked the way he edited those pictures :)

    These were really good, especially the second one. Such a colourful profile and there are shots of Portugal :D @Cheetosdust

    Hey, thanks a ton for those words :D

    Yesss :)

    (You can still help by sharing some tutorial posts/videos when you come across them ;))
