I am an Instagram user and I know a lot of you are too. But have you heard about the global community of Filipino Instagram'ers (or IGers / ay-ji-ers). They share and tell stories behind the snapshots through #IGersmanila and #9pmhabit on Instagram.
They've been meeting regularly through Instameet but its only now that IGers have there own Photo Exhibit sponsored by Globe. The 1st Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit was held at Gloriette 4 Cinema Lobby yesterday (November 30, 2012 at 10PM) and will run until today (December 1, 2012). The group will showcase different photos creatively snapped and filtered by select Globe IGers and members of Circle of Snapshooters #iCoss taken during their photowalk session at Luneta Park, Bonifacio Global City, Intramuros, and Manila Bay.
The second day of the exhibit also culminates its 11th Philippine Instameet. Its their way of getting the chance and opportunity to meet face to face and get to know fellow Instagram'ers, or maybe meet the members of #iCoss (Circle of Snapshooters) and talk about filters and apps, exchange ideas about photo editing. The Instameet will start at 4pm to 6pm at the same venue.
I'm a follower and a member of IGers for a long time and been supporting their cause and activities. I was so fortunate to be part of the exhibit and #iCoss. I am not a professional photographer but given this wonderful experience is such an honor. Chosen among thousands of snapshooters, I became part of the first batch, called Bollard Friends, and participated the first photo session in Luneta Park.
P.S. This two events are open to all IGers and the General Public.
