Photographers on Instagram: Two to Follow

Emily johnston instagram

While I mostly follow friends and social media colleagues on Instagram, there's something about stalking perusing a professional photographer's feed that is particularly satisfying. When I'm not fawning over their framing, subject matter, and ability to capture light, I pick up a few tips to inform my own iPhonography skills. Here are two faves that I'm especially loving of late.


New Yorker Emily Johnston (above) has a way with still-life vignettes that makes me want to jump through the glass and into her world. Alan Jensen (below) is an Australian interiors and lifestyle photographer based in Amsterdam. His shots of snow and hot soup have me thinking that winter might not be such a bad thing after all. (Okay, I'm InstaCrushing on him.) Follow these two STAT, you guys!   

P.S. Who are your top Instagram recs right now? Tell me!
