Featured Mobile Photographer–Nigel Gates

Nigel Gates
Street photography fascinates me.  I find the day to day images captured around the world of everyday people doing ordinary things quite beautiful. Nigel Gates captures these images beautifully and even more than that he adds captions that delight, surprise and move me.

Nigel began his Instagram journey just six months ago.  He said it took him a while to find his style – but I’m oh so glad he did!  He’s doesn’t rely heavily on apps to get his stunning results, but instead uses Instagram’s built-in filters.  Apps he does use include Noir Photo for black and white.  Pic Grunger is great according to Nigel, even if you don’t want grunge effects but just to add some depth to a black and white image.  Snapseed is his go to app for cropping, targeting a particular element or playing with the exposure and contrast.  Squaready is Nigel’s choice when posting an image that not already cropped square.

Enough talk…here is some of Nigel’s beautiful work.  Be sure to read the captions below (taken from his Instagram feed).
