Shanghai instagram meetup

I’ve been using the iPhone photographic sharing and filter application Instagram now for a few months. It’s like Twitter for images – and has been a lot of phone to share and see photos from around the world and here in Shanghai as well.

Just last weekend, local Shanghainese instagram user @sgm900_shanghai (Andy) organized a Shanghai instagram meetup at Sinan Mansions – from there we would take a photo walk down to Taikang Lu and have a fun photographic afternoon.

@sgm900_shanghai’s photo of our group. It was a lot of fun meeting up with people you’ve only seen through photos

And a couple of the shots I took with my Nikon during that day


If you get a bunch of people with iPhones out – this is what happens

    There were all sorts of non-iPhone cameras – a Lomo, a Sony NEX, Olympus EPL-2, Nikon FM2, Nikon d80 – lots of people took their shots, then processed them at home and then instagram’d them later. I also brought my FujiFilm Instamax.

    Hi Irene! Good idea! haha, it will certainly be a lot cooler.

    Sinan Mansions is a strange choice for a photo meet up since photography is forbidden there.

  6. Terence says:

    It’s not really forbidden – you just can’t do the model + photographer posing there. Most of our photos were taken in Taikang Lu – I think Sinan was just the closest place with a large Costa coffee that wasnt really crowded.
