Earlier this week, I was invited to explore The Franklin Institute (222 North 20th Street) after hours during their latest #FranklinInstameet. If you’ve never heard of an “instameet,” it’s a pretty interesting lil idea. Essentially, they’re a chance for the Instagram enthusiasts and superstars of the city, area, world, etc. to meet up at one location, snap some amazing photos, and learn from their fellow photographers.
Now, as far as these instameets go, I’m certainly not a regular. The only other one I’ve attended took place at Longwood Gardens around the holidays, and I was pretty impressed with some of the Philly photogs there. These events are typically planned by a superstar Instagrammer themselves (my buddy Al put this one together), who makes the IGer guest list. That being said, I’m typically on the other list, put together by the brand or business (which I suits me, obviously).
