Vscocam is a great alternative to Instagram when it comes to online photo sharing. It takes on a more professional approach and takes away the like and comment system implemented in Instagram. It's focus is simply on the photos. I appreciate that because as Instagram continues it's life it is becoming more and more of a popularity contest. It's not even about the photos anymore, it's simply a visual Facebook of nonsense at times. Not that the new direction is a bad one, however for those who take photography a little more seriously and seek inspiriation it's not a good community to go to.

Vscocam allows you to create, edit, and display photos in a grid system. It's as if you are posting your photos to a virtual museum for others to browse. You shoot images with an advanced UI that includes camera controls such as manual focus, shutter speed, white balance and exposure compenation. Then you sync the images and edit photos in a streamlined workflow. All images you edit go to a virtual cloud based library that can be accessed on any device that can sign into Vscocam (PC and mobile). You edit photos with various filters and effects. Vscocam is known for a washed out, low contrast style... commonly referred to as "vintage" or "hipster" style. It's a photography style that allows for anyone to look good and any image to appear professional thanks to literally cutting out half the spectrum. Once you are done editing you upload it to your profile and share it.

A unique and fun feature to Vscocam is the explore options. You can find inspiration on their "Vsco Grid" and "Vsco Journal." They include journal articles, photography tutorials, inspiration, both famous and amature photographers, and images from around the globe.
