Iphoneography: Instagramming up a creative nerd storm.

It is crazy what iPhones did for the wannabe photographers in all of us. They have a fast shutter speed, lots of crazy apps to make your pictures look cool when they really aren’t, and an array of social media platforms for sharing your life. I could never get hooked on twitter, I don’t like reading stuff much but I sure do like looking at stuff. Thats what I love about Instagram and other apps like it. iPhones raised the bar in cell phone photography. Soon after they came out and people realized the power that they had and started hosting gallery showings with all iPhone taken photographs… it blew my mind. Insanely famous photographers like Chase Jarvis were out there promoting this new slightly cheesy art form. Well it is cheesy but I love it! Check out some of our photos!

The reason we are bringing this up is because we just started running an instagram contest! It will run for 4 weeks and each week we will announce a new winner and they will receive a prize pack from us!

So if you need some inspiration give these photos a look over. They don’t pertain to the contest but this is the sort of creativity level we are talking about. Good composition, good colors, nice and crisp photos… the whole shebang! We want action!

The Penny Skateboards “Nickel”

Hey there everyone… check out Shop employee Spencer Morgan Knuttila scooting around on his Penny Nickel! These things are insanely fun! It is 27 inches long, 7.5 inches wide, comes with 4 inch trucks and super smooth 59mm 78a wheels. These things are perfect for cruising around with friends, going to the store, chillin’ in a park, or just all around doing  your thang! The Penny Nickel is just big enough to pull off some fun tricks and handle a bit bigger hills! You won’t regret picking one of these puppies up!

Check out some of the photos from Spencer’s Instagram of him playing around on his Penny Nickel! It is a retro type board so we figured retro type images would suit it best!

The Penny Nickel in all it's glory! Nice and fresh!
