That's right: I created 4 weeks worth of Instagram content walking in Central London for less than 30 minutes. It could even be more than 4 weeks, considering I'm a bit of a slow uploader. But here you'll see 20 photos I find worth sharing. And at 5 a week, it is 4 weeks of Instagram content. Taken on a 30 minutes walk. In case you think you don't have
I was asked by my friend Dot Lung to go live with her and talk about smartphone photography tips and how to make better photos with your phone.
