Did you know that there are 500 million active users on Instagram?

That’s a lot of photo inspiration.

Many of us are following the “big names” with several thousands (and sometimes millions) of followers but there’s a lot of visual goodness to behold in the feeds of those with smaller followings. But how do you find them? Feeds with a more modest following can be harder to find but they’re worth hunting for. We’ve found many when photographers we follow on Facebook or via email link to their Instagram accounts. Using the search tab or perusing hashtags that interest you directly on Instagram are great ways to find new people to follow. We’ve even found new people to follow because someone we already follow tagged them or they commented on a photo of someone we follow.

Many of us are following the "big names" with several thousands of followers but there's a lot of visual goodness to see in the less followed feeds.

We’re here to help in your search for the hidden gems. Here are some of our favorite photographers on Instagram with smaller followings. Enjoy!

When I was 20, my sister was 7. Now he's 7 and at times I feel like I'm looking straight at her. @lulalulaluna
