The One with Black & White or Color?


Tuesday, November 6, 2012

I love instagram.
(@paigetaylorevans)
I do, I really, really do.
My only problem with it is I love all the different filters, I never know which one to use!

I think my favorite is "Amaro" followed closely by "Walden" then "Valencia". For funsies I like to use "Toaster". And then every once in awhile I love a picture in "Inkwell". The problem with converting a picture to black & white is there's no color - and I love color! But there's something about black & white that is so beautiful!

For instance, today I snapped a picture of baby Jane looking all cute in her Bumbo. Of course I wanted to instagram the photo. But which filter to use!?!? I was loving both Inkwell and Toaster!

In the end I went with Inkwell, but I think if I ever scrap these photos I'll use both. Cuz I can!
Which filter is your favorite and why? I'm curious :)

  1. AWWW, that picture of Jane is just too cute! And amaro is definitely my go-to. I also use 1977 every once in a while ;)

  2. we always use the first two because the whole being asian thing really messes with the coloring options we have. blame it on the yellowness.

  5. My favourite is Nashville, but I've been trying out other fliters for change. Walden and Valencia are becoming faves since they seem to be great for low lighting. We're heading into the grey days of winter here in Canada and I can use the extra help.
    I love your instagram pictures. I follow you. I;m yellowbeetlejen.

  10. Also, I have been browsing your recent posts with my 21 month old. When she sees Fox she says, "BASTI!" which is her older brother (Sebastian), and when she sees Jane she says, "LoLo!" which is her baby sister (Eloise). It's really cute. =)

  11. I'm obsessed w Instagram!(as you can tell by how often I post) & am always conflicted w which filter to choose. Is there a way to use the filters but not post to the feed? I always feel like I may be annoying my followers when I post more than 1 version... Then again I tend to over think these things.
