World Wide Instameet Number 11 With @IgersCapeTown…

March 23rd, 2015 · 4 Comments

You have to know that a good spot to find us online is on instagram, @se7en_hoods. One thing Cape Town does very well is Instameets. An Instameet or Meetup is were a group of local instagrammers get together and meet. It is a fantastic way, not only to connect with the faces behind a lot of your followers, but to learn. I have never been to a meet up and come away with out at least one fabulous new tip tucked away in my pocket. The thing about placing a whole lot of instagrammers in one spot is that they each have their own view of the same thing… and to see so many creative interpretations of the same venue is incredible.

If you are an instagrammer in Cape Town or visiting Cape Town, search out @igersCapeTown and find an instagram meet up and join the fun. This past weekend there were instagram meetups all over the world and Cape Town had not one, not two, but four meetups to join in. We finally made it to the Sunset at the top of Signal Hill. Heaps of other instgrammers joined in, it was a fantastic turnout.

How do you find a group of instagrammers in the crowd… a large group of camera wielding individuals. The variety of instagrammers is in itself fascinating… all ages, and all stages. Some very professional photographers, some very creative photographers, some regular snappers, and heaps of beginners and all of them very enthusiastic about their craft. Or you can look out for the flag/balloon…

The Instgrammers

Tend to be a very creative bunch and will go to great lengths to get the shot they have been plotting and planning…

They will lurk off into the undergrowth, to make sure that this is the perfect spot for their unique picture…
