The Follower

Using open cameras and AI to find how an Instagram photo is taken.

How does this work?

  1. Recorded a selection of open cameras for weeks.
  2. Scraped all Instagram photos tagged with the locations of the open cameras.
  3. Software compares the Instagram with the recorded footage.

I launched the project on 12 September 2022. The YouTube video was just created with results of 10 days. I will publish new results on my socials.
