As a short background, this group was started as an Instagram Hub by Jason Foose, @foose03, and Andrew Croft, __croft__, of Arts & Crofts. Instagram users can tag their photographs to #wheeling_shooters and have a chance to be featured. We feature photos on Monday and Thursday, but we hope to feature more often as we receive more entries. We also started a page on Facebook to reach an audience that may not be on Instagram. You do not need to be on Instagram to participate (can post to our Facebook page), but you do need to submit to Instagram for prize consideration.
We started Wheeling_Shooters to encourage the many talented photo-takers in the area to take more photos! This city deserves to be photographed. Take notice the next time you walk in almost any neighborhood in Wheeling. The entire city is photogenic! We have historic buildings and tunnels, stunning views, beautiful parks, friendly people, and even a couple of waterfalls.
Use these hashtags to be considered for features and prizes. We will post winners from each category and three overall winners will receive a prize.
The last two Instameets were a blast and very well attended! We had more than 50 participants for the downtown walk and about 35 in Centre Market. Our #wheeling_shooters tag currently holds over 3,000 photos. If you haven't had a chance to browse, or tag, please do so. Show some love to our local shooters and participate yourself. This group is for all types of shooters. Whether you have a professional DSLR, a little point-and-shoot, or even a phone camera, everyone is welcome to attend. Hope to see you there!
Here are some of our favorite shots from the last two meets....
