Insta-Yosemite

Yosemite National Park through then lens of my iPhone 5.

The images below are all shot with my iPhone 5 and edited with the Snapseed app. It was part of a project I’ve been wanting to do to engage readers with what we do at The Fresno bee through online contact. I thought that we could start a photo sharing project using hashtags on Instagram. So when an assignment in Yosemite came up, I thought that would be the perfect start to the project. I decided to ask people to share images with a fall theme. I began by making a gallery of Instagram images in Yosemite and tagging them all with #fresnobeefall. We ran a front page story as well as a feature page detailing how people can get involved. We recieved several submissions from people and I’m hoping to keep a series of instagram projects like this going in the future.
