commute self-portraits right outside his house, facing east with his bike in hand. Ryan's Instagram photos serve as a visual diary of the past year and the progression of his style. "If you look back at my stream, you'll see it started with me drinking coffee on the curb and watching the sun rise. Then as sunrise got later and later, it switched to being right as I left for work. From there I started experimenting and iterating." For Ryan, the best part of his year-long photo challenge has been the reactions of other Instagrammers. "The response to the shots has been far greater than I could have imagined, especially as I am getting towards the end of my goal. The feedback from my friends and local followers is really what motivated me to keep it going and to keep experimenting every morning, no matter how silly I looked out on the curb in front of the passing cars."

"Everything about them, their appearance, behaviors—everything is just so alien," she says. As for technique, Teresa takes all of her photos and videos using her phone and a few trusty accessories. Teresa also has some tips for others who may want to try their hand at macro mobile photography or videography: "Other than having passion for it, macro photography is about three things: knowledge, technique, and patience. You have to know your subjects: their behavior, how to approach them, and when to shoot them. You must shoot without fear. Also, you must have great patience to achieve great shots. I’ve spent a good hour chasing bees and dragonflies—do not surrender and it will yield rewarding results." To see more of Teresa's macro insect shots, be sure to follow @teresa_franco.
