Instagram is pretty simple. So simple, in fact, that some people may find it confusing.

So, we're here to clear it up for you. Instagram is a fun way to share pictures and a great way to showcase the beautiful area we live in.

While we are able to get up a few fun photos here and there, we're by no means professional photographers.

So, we decided to begin a "Guestagram" program via our Lehigh Valley Instagram account where we let a local photographer take over our account for a few days to showcase their work and their take on the great area we live in.

First up is local photographer Matthew Blum, who currently has a photo exhibition on display at Home and Planet in Bethlehem through Sunday, November 25.

Blum's photos will run on our Instagram through November 25 as well and cover a variety of subjects including classic cars, hikes, nights out on the town and local iconic buildings.

Even if you don't have an Instagram account yourself, you can still check out all of our photos as they are posted directly on the web.

If you are a photographer who is interested in participating in our new Guestagram program, please email
