In the style of: Instagram

For this meetup, you'll be using Instagram to take pictures throughout the afternoon and then publish EIGHT images of Hong Kong (no more, no less) to your account. Please tag your images with #hkpc.

Please arrive on time where I will share a few Instagram tips and confirm your Instagram account names. As you publish your images, they will appear on the HKPC website here. (Only my Instagram images are showing currently as a placeholder until the event starts).

Edit: As the group size is now above 30, we will meet afterwards at G/F, The L Place, 139 Queen's Road Central, as I'm told they have decent wifi so you can upload to Instagram from there.

Please note, if you have RSVP'ed but do not arrive by 2.40pm, you will be marked as a no-show. After 3 no-shows, Organizers may ban you from the group.

---

Q. What if I don't have an Instagram account?
A. You must use Instagram to participate in this meetup. Get one for free at instagram.com.

Q. What if I don't have a phone that works with Instagram?
A. No problem. Take your photographs using a regular digital camera then you can use Instagram on my iPad to Publish to your Instagram account. Just be sure to bring along a USB connector cable for your camera.

Q. How will we share our images afterwards if we've posted them to Instagram?
A. I will build a micro-site for this meetup but I will need your Instagram usernames, so make sure you add your username when you RSVP to the meetup.

Q. Can I add lots of images to Instagram then pick the 5 best afterwards?
A. No. Take all of your photographs first without using Instagram then post only your favourite 5 to Instagram. The website mentioned about will only display your five most recent Instagram posts. I will share details of the micro-site at the meetup.

Q. What is the theme?
A. You can photograph any topic you like. The goal is to make the most impactful use of the square crop approach and the pre-defined filters.

Q. Do I need to use any specific one of the filters offered by Instagram?
A. No, you can use whichever one you like.

    Sounds interesting! Definitely a good way to think about framing and composition. I haven't used instagram before.
    I imagine we either need to use smartphones or bring a laptop to transfer photos from our camera to upload?

    I have no idea about Instagram. Is it a mobile phone snap shot?

    Is this an actual meetup, i.e. are we snapping the instas as a group then going off and uploading them. Or is this a meetup where we just sit in a room and upload to instagram photos we have gathered ourselves...? Hope it's the former. Looking forward to coming as missed the big meetup couple weeks ago.

      It's the former. We all head out to take Instagram shots then reconvene to share.
