My son and Mom are IGers. But, mom rarely uses it. It's a work in progress...
I got my mom hooked on ig! Now my dad just deals with us on it all the time! I think he's considering getting one too
I think most days my husband would be happy if my phone fell in the ocean and couldn't be revived...
My parents are obsessed with iPhones haha. I completely turned my mom onto iphoneography and now she loves it. Can't wait to see your moms work✌
Hubby hates it tremendously because I love it so much... But it's what I need to keep me happy
I totally just laughed!
Tonight on our walk. I thought @jdbarden would just leave me to fend for myself.
I actually fasted IG for the month of August. This month it's FB. I get too consumed.
My 3 kids have been igers for a long time, starting soon after I did. My husband, the engeneer, "tech fan" is the only one who doesn't understand our ig passion...
@joshjohnson please check my instagram page josh! It would mean alot im just an Amateur wanting to learn more.
Love it! Hehe
This is hilarious!!!
It was my brother and sister that got me into IG. Had a account for ages and didn't really understand it. We went on a family trip and they opened my eyes to this huge community! :)
@joshjohnson I bet all those 65 messages were from @ohemg87.....
That's awesome. My mom just got on.
My parents just got IG.....haha they're.... getting there. i think. I had to explain hashtag's to them. 😳 My husband and sister have one too. But no one is hooked! What the heck!
I've never used the Sierra Ass feature but I'm totally gonna use it now! #sierrasskicks
@ahmyrmo WRONG. isn't that INSANE!!? It drives me nuts!!!! He won't delete them! ;) @joshjohnson I'm not the only one!!!!
Josh sounds like a kid, he's so excited for his father 😝
That great! I just got my dad on IG and he is still struggling, but absolutely loves it! Next step...get him into the jj forum!!
@ohemg87 to even have 65 unread messages...that is insane!!! Oh happy birthday btw. Yes here in norway it would be your birthday already. So I'm allowed to wish you happy birthday ;) I didn't get you anything though.....
@joshjohnson Hey Josh, what hour do the forums begin & end each day? I'm in Korea so I'm trying to get the time difference right so I can contribute.
showed my Dad IG at his 82nd birthday celebration this weekend. He was totally thrilled by the concept!
Since visiting mom, she now knows I sleep with my 4s. So I have to answers her calls.
Sounds so fun haha! I'm constantly teaching and tutoring my mom about IG, too. Like how to edit, tag and all that jazz. At times It's a bit frustrating teaching the technologically challenged, but when they produce a great picture in the end, it's all worth it.
My husband, my sister and brother in law are in IG. My mom can barely work a DVD player so an iPhone is too much! LOL
Hi Josh I started taking photos with my eos 600D but then I got hooked on ig"
LOL I love it!
Love it it reminds me of my mom in law. Texting with her is painful! My hubby says that he is happy I have these challenges on IG. He told me he hasn't seen me this relaxed at the start of a school year in along time ☺
We are one big, happy applified family of 4, with iPhones, iPads & macs all around, all 4 with IG accounts, 3 of us hooked & constantly posting while the last one standing watches, shaking his head once in a while 😁
My mom told me she got a "Large" Octane phone. (Lg) and when she first discovered graphics, I would get random graphics with no words.
Proud of your dad @joshjohnson. I should post a pic of my moms cell from the late 90s. Duck tape and all. She just won't let it go. 😕
Sorry I will start again. I started taking photos with my eos 600D and did two photography courses. Then I was introduced to ig and got hooked, not that is an understatement , I an obsessed with IG. But my friend says that's not real photography and that there is no skill involved, because you just point bad shoot. She is a brilliant photographer and so I introduced her to instsgram, but two weeks on and still. Nothing. Is she just being negative? Any thoughts. Sometimes I just think she puts me down because she is a better photographer than I am. But I seem to take better photos with my phone. Although I made the mistake of getting a Samsung galaxy s3. So will have to save for an iphone 5. @joshjohnson.
It was my 16 yr old daughter that told me to sign up when I got my first iPhone last year! Love her to bits she said "your gonna love this app Mum give it a go" Now I'm addicted thanks @libeeerty 👍👍😁😁😁
@orbabgirl Mine too!
Love it! My husband, our mothers, two brothers, a sister-in-law, dad as of yesterday, cousins...IG is a family affair. Although, my husband and I are definitely the addicts😁
@ahmyrmo thank yoooou :) you don't need to! You're enough! :)
@ohemg87 😘 love you babe!
They are fed up of me, ig n my phone.... Because I don't see things or people... I see images now... My wife even says that it would be my happiest day when ig will be corrupted by a hacker.
My husband was accepting and understanding at first, but now he gets a little frustrated when I want to stop the car and take 20 pictures of the sunset. Lol. I need to make sure I get just the right one. :)
Drives my husband nuts. So I got him to make an account and now he's hooked! ;)
Lol @alrak91. It's like that for me too. Now they know and expect it.
It's a family thing with my brothers and I, so all good. Well, except for the 20th shot of the same thing. Traveling with my parents though they started pointing things out they thought I might like to shoot. Cool folks!!!!
@wanderlust222 yes, please tel us? Lol how is your family handling it???
My mom and dad acctually had an iPhone, iPad and Macs before I even knew what it was..
My husband does not mind. But I do have to say that he gets a little annoyed when I use all the storage space with my pictures😁
Husband minds some times but he's a picture happy guy too (#spiffyraz) ..he does try but doesn't quite have that great composition eye always and totally appreciate it when he sends me a sweet snap of the kids when I'm stuck at work still. my son has been used to being in front and behind the camera since about 2 or 3 his tag is #spiffyd ❤️ and even free hands it when given a camera and lays down to get that one awesome prospective... I laugh every time but he learned it from me. Anything to get that shot I have in my head 👍 good job for having your mom on. Fun fun
Both me and my husband (@randagalf) are IG-addicts so everything is okey. Our soon to be-5 yearold daughter tells us every day to take pictures and post them on IG "so everyone can see. Even those people who lives in Thailand" :D We live in Sweden.. :)
My hubby has mixed emotions, sometimes he seems a bit jealous of the time I spend, he's a bit suspicious of technology anyway, other times he seems ok with it, especially when I tell him a pic of him was popular... And a few times he's even been interested enough to look at a photo or two! Maybe it'll get better with time...😏
My friends are long-suffering about my IG obsession/addiction. They wait, semi-patiently, as I embarrassingly crouch or sit down in public to take photos of things. :)
My daughter and I now spend very special times together scouting for places to take pics, we're often out and about making memories and snapping away, she's not so into the social side of IG (unlike me) but I love that we share an interest, it's not alway easy to find common ground with teenagers is it! :))
Other than using the phone it's nothing different from what I've been doing for 50 years
@_bostongirl I wish I got 65 messages!! People should text me more!!!
My mom is totally panicked with technology! My dad is not as bad but frustrated! My brother in denial! My sister an addict like me! My oldest daughter totally consumed! My hubby has the 4s n the IG app but totally not interested in participating in the hype...but he loves the phone...all my friends...an addict like me...totally consumed with the phone n all these amazing apps...best smart phone ever!!!
I played World of Warcraft for many years. Family said I was addicted.
So I got them playing. Suddenly, I no longer had a problem.
I'm the only member of my family IG obsessed. My mother doesn't have a smart phone-it's a good thing.
@garymon16 😄 That is hilarious. My family is the same way (not that I play World of Warcraft, lol) :)
@sica_photography Now I play World of Instagram. 😜
@garymon16 roflll well, that I do play ;D. Sadly, I've only gotten 1 out of my 9 immediate family members into it ( @pookie8287 !), but this might be for the best ;). My mommy only just learned how to take photos with her phone, and they're always blurry 😄
@sica_photography it's a fine line between blurry, poorly cropped mom photos and artistic hipster photos.
@garymon16 oh, so true. until they are photos of recipes, and you can't read the measurements 😄. Maybe she is sneakily trying to get me to be creative in the kitchen as well ;D
@sica_photography Ha! Maybe.
What you have 60+ messages! That would drive me insane!
