As you can probably tell by the amount of Instagram-related content on this blog, I’m a huge fan of the platform.
While some a deterred by the square format, I enjoy the challenge. I have to be more creative to get a shot that will both reflect the subject but also respect the rules of photography, all while dosing the filters appropriately. Instagram has become a tremendously big part of my social media habits and I genuinely enjoy it – whether it is for sharing my own work or admiring that of other talented photographers from all over the world.
Because I am such an avid Instagrammer myself, and because I do appreciate seeing my city with a different set of eyes, I spend a fair amount of time liking photos of my fellow Montreal Instagram friends. I won’t go into details as to why I love every single one of the accounts listed below – sometimes it’s just the way they play with light, their eye for architecture or their inspiring captions, but know that this is a very representative portrait of Montreal.
And of course, listing the best Montreal Instagram accounts would be a mistake if I didn’t list my own. I’m not saying that because I’m in love with myself, but rather because iron staircases are such a Montreal staple and they incidentally make up for about 80% of my feed. With the occasional travel photo thrown in for good measure!
