Your Lumia Instagramer of the Month: Amir Karimi Nia

Last month we asked for your help in deciding which Instagramer will be February’s Instagramer of the Month. Cue drum roll because the results are now in.

February’s Fab Five were indeed a fantastic bunch, but after thousands of votes you chose none other than the incredibly talented Amir Karimi Nia, also known as xboxonlineir. Amir’s photos beautifully depict both the urban and natural beauty of Iran, so it’s no wonder you loved his work as much as we do. Read on to find out more out February’s winner, and be sure to check out his gorgeous photos as well.

Which Lumia do you have and what do you like most about it?

I use a Lumia 1020 with a camera grip and what I like the most about it obviously is its camera. Actually, the main thing that motivated me to buy my Lumia phone was the fact that I can carry a 41megapixels camera with me all the time and even taking shots in raw format. I love that!

Where do you shoot most of your photos and what sort of photos do you like to take best?

Mainly my photos are taken in my hometown, Ardabil. It’s surrounded by beautiful, pure nature.

The sorts of photos I like to take are everyday urban and nature scenes. I want to keep doing it and travel further and take more photos all over my country, and someday maybe the world…

I’d love to combine documentary and beauty photography together someday. That’s my goal.

What are your top tips for taking Instagram photos on your Lumia?

When I try to shoot a frame, I always consider it as a square. I think it’s the most basic yet most neglected factor. I also always use the setting of Lumia camera in the low light and the adjustment shutter speed is one of the most practical features of Lumia. It’s incredible.

Which five Lumia instagramers do you recommend everyone to follow?

Well, it is hard for me to chose only five individuals from these many amazing people, but as gratitude and shoutout I’d like to mention:

@deepakkhoenie Beautiful Black and White Photography

@vuviwild I like his style

@mister_jon_jon Amazing Nature photographer

@jillophone She is so creative

@samanlumia He is a friend of mine
