On December 15, Instagram announced that Instagram has over 600 million monthly active users and the last 100 million of them joined in just the past six months. It is hard to tell how many of them are professionals or how many of them are worth following but this number is huge.
Since there are many artists on Instagram, it is getting harder to grab people’s attention. Nature, fashion, celebrities, memes, photoshopped images… these kind of pictures were interesting once but not anymore. Do you know how many accounts share nature shots other than National Geographic? There could be at least millions of them. Everyone has a phone and can shot photos or can photoshop images in their own way. So, in order to get attention, you need to be more creative than the others.
Stephen McMennamy is one of those creative people. Just when I think it is impossible to get attention on Instagram without paying for ads, I see people as creative as Stephen. He uses Photoshop just like many others but his creativity what makes him different. Here are my favorite creations that can inspire you.
