Top Instagram-er On Good Day

Posted: Updated:

Daily News photojournalist Dave Maialetti was recently named one of the "10 Instagram Photographers You Should Follow," by Forbes Magazine. Dave takes some amazing pictures.

From his Instagram, it's clear that he has a very keen eye for capturing Philadelphia and the people who live around the area. And Dave does this all on his iPhone.

He was on Good Day to talk about his Instagram-ing. He also answered some questions from Mike and Sheinelle.

Dave revealed that he uses two apps to compose the perfect photo before utilizing Instagram. 6X6 and Squara were his two phototaking apps of choice.

Finally, here is some expert photography advice from Dave.

  • For composition, Dave recommends to only include what you absolutely think you'll need. Don't try to take in the whole scene unless that's specifically what you want to do.
  • The biggest mistake is over-filtering the image. Don't use filters as a crutch, use it to enhance the artsiness.
  • Take advantage of golden hour: sunset and sunrise are the best times for lighting outside because it makes everything look beautiful.
  • When taking photos of kids, make sure to get down at their level. Meet them at the eye!
