DigPhotog: MacGyver and Photographers Using #Instagram (W3-P4) Sp15

Ever see the TV series called MacGyver from the 1980s-early 90s?

Here's a question for you: What's the relationship between MacGyver and a photographer using Instagram?

In each episode, MacGyver would get himself into some tight spot and would have get especially creative and use what limited resources he had to work himself out of that tight spot.  Below is a clip about MacGyver and one about Instagram, if you are not familiar.

So again: What's the relationship between MacGyver and a photographer using Instagram?

You are MacGyver and Instagram is the tight spot.  Instgram has limitation, but withn these limitations what can you improvise.  One key limitation is the square shape of the Instagram photo.

Being forced to improvise, is a good thing.  I think good art comes out of being forced to be creative given limited resources.
