Instagram Storytellers with @ Michelle.Huber

Check out this Instagram Storytellers series with @Michelle.Huber where she talks about what inspires her
The account of Michele Huber is one of those that I look forward to everyday simply because…it’s art. Everyday, I look forward to seeing how she turns the simplest things into some of the most beautiful photos of everyday life that I see in my Instagram feed. When asked what is the story you hope your Instagram tells? She answered:
“The ordinary everyday is magical. I truly believe that the everyday details are where our story lies”.

Tell Us about yourself and your background
I am a wife and mom to two teenagers.  I work part time outside the home as a chemist. I’ve always loved “art” but I always chose the science and math classes in college.  Looking back, I wish I would have taken a pottery class or photography class.  After college, I started to experiment with different creative outlets.  First was painting, then sewing and quilting, card making, and most recently photography.  I also enjoy gardening and cooking.

How did you first get into photography?

I was very slow to jump into the digital world. Only after my film camera broke and I was looking for a new camera, did I decide to get a Nikon point and shoot. I loved the convenience of digital. But with 2 active kids, the delay of the shutter became very frustrating. I had been looking at the Canon Rebel DSLR’s for several months but was scared to make the jump because of the price. Would I really spend that much on a camera!! Little did I know! Once I made the jump, it was love from the very beginning. I spent all of my free time reading articles and tutorials to learn as much as I could. And 5 years later, there is still so much to learn.

Tell me about your Instagram journey: how did you get started?

 Just like the digital camera, I was slow to get a smart phone. In June 2013, I got an iPhone 4s and immediately signed up for an IG account. 🙂 I posted here and there, finding a few people to follow. In 2015, I decided to make a commitment to a project 365 with the Bethadilly Challenge. I wanted to become a better photographer with my DSLR and more consistent with my editing in Lightroom. The project posed its own challenges; staying focused, finding creative ways to capture my days. I finished my year and made myself a keepsake phonebook through Blurb as a gift to myself. I’ve met so many amazing people on IG and I value the friendships I’ve made there.

What was on of your favorite photos that you took recently. Why?

I’m always drawn to my nature photographs…recently I went on a photowalk with my local IG’s in a neighboring town.  I found some “weeds” along the road and love the way the light was hitting them.

I also love my kitchen images, probably because I am in that room the most.  Images of my daughter or I preparing food or even washing dishes are the details I want to remember.

Who or what inspires you?
Nature is my go-to when I’m in a rut. A walk through the woods, listening to the birds and watching the way the sun filters through the trees with my camera in hand always makes my heart happy. I also love macro photography. It forces me to slow down, breathe and just be present while I’m photographing my subject.

Tell us 3 of your favorite Instagram accounts.

I am inspired by @jennydiaznature’s nature photography. Her nature images are both simple and beautiful.

@zaidalucia.photographer‘s use of light and shadows. I love the way she photographs the everyday details of her days with her daughter.

I love the travel photography by @homemadeinchina. The details she captures of her days living in a far off land are absolutely stunning and her street photography is raw and honest.

    Michele’s pictures are beautiful. I love being out in nature listening to birds, crickets, and leaves blowing in the wind. Her photos reminded to be still and absorb natures energy.

    I need to do better about Instagram editing. I usually just crop, sharpen and add a filter. I’ll go get the app Michelle recommended.

    An interesting interview. I am a self-taught photographer, too, and I enjoy it so much! It was very frustrating for a long time, then one day things just “clicked” (no pun intended) and I finally was able to go into full manual mode! Such a victory for me!

    Those pictures are so vivid. I’m in need of another camera, and like her, I don’t want to spend too much even though I love photography and know that it would ultimately be worth it.

    I like the spider web picture, normally i would not be interested in a spider web if i saw it with my own eyes, but photography gives it a new lens. never thought of meeting up with people I’ve met on instagram..
