Q&A With Team Priime: Fave Styles, Cameras, And More!

A little while back, we asked some of our favorite IGers to tell us about their go-to photo editing apps. One that got a lot of love was Priime!

The Priime team is based right by our HQ in San Francisco, so we decided to pop by their office for a visit.

Take a look as we go behind the scenes and chat with them about how they’re taking photo styles to the next level.


Track Your IG Info With StatShot

There are a few options out there when it comes to tracking your Instagram info: likes, follows, comments … you know the drill.

Our pal, Luke Beard (uh. great name, or greatest name?), wasn’t real thrilled with any of them, so he created his own! Get it, Luke.

StatShot not only gives you daily IG data, but does so in an uncluttered, non-intrusive way. It’s clean, straight to the point and free to use if you’ve got less than 5k followers. We love free.

Sign up by linking your IG account here and start getting your daily dose of IG info. It’s a beautiful way to figure out what people are diggin’ about your feed, which hashtags are working out, and quantitatively measure your internet love.

Our love for you, however, could never be contained within data. <3

Mindful Photography

Being behind a camera is definitely one of the best places to be, but channeling all that creativity can sometimes take you away from appreciating your surroundings.

Get your Zen on with this article by Aaron Eisenberg. He lays out some excellent tips on being mindful of the moment, while still capturing it.

We plucked out a few of our favorites here:

  • Rather than going into a place and snapping away, take time to look around and find the best shot or two. This saves digital storage, creates better photos and gathers greater memories!
  • Spend a day taking notes rather than snapping photos. This can spark conversations and provide you with more depth to your documentation.
  • Forget about likes and favorites while you’re on vacation. Wait to post your photos on social media until after you’re home again.
