Canal Plus: The Next Instameet
It’s been way too long. But finally, the Birmingham Instagram Group (which I am co-administrator of) has finally announced it’s next, and second, “Instameet“.
This time it’s a canal-based stroll, starting at Brewsmiths cafe near Snow Hill station’s Livery Street entrance (http://www.facebook.com/brewsmiths) and then heading along the canal towards the heart of Birmingham city, taking in Brindley Place, Gas Street Basin and the Mailbox. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a pub or cafe didn’t feature somewhere in the itinerary too.
As usual, everyone is welcome to come along, and of course, it’s free! But please let us know if you plan to come along so that we have some idea of roughly how many people to expect. Remember, you don’t have to be a “serious” photographer to take part, or even very experienced in making photographs with your phone’s camera – but chances are, you’ll pick up plenty of tips along the way.
You will find the B.I.G – Birmingham Instagram Group, not entirely surprisingly, on Instagram. Search for @igersbirmingham. Conveniently, this is also our Twitter handle. And start tagging your images with a #igersbirmingham to be included in the growing pool of great images from the West Midlands, or by West Midlands photographers.
Oh, and you might also get some advanced notice of a forthcoming event which will be of interest to Instagrammers. You heard it here first…
