PRACTICE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY
Photography is the most important part of Instagram. After all, the whole app is a place to post photo’s and videos. The one thing to do when trying to bring a nice looking feed together is perfect your images. Whether that means improving your camera, or just how you frame pictures – make sure you’re using the best techniques you can to ensure your pictures turn out as amazing as can be. (I personally take my photographs on my iPhone 7 Plus. It’s portable, always with me and takes amazing pictures!)
Whilst it’s all well and good taking a picture, sometimes you need to be that little bit picky as to what makes it onto your feed. Don’t just upload every image you take. When taking a new picture make sure to try a combination of angles. Use a combination of poses. Try capture the best background possible, then from all the pictures you take, narrow it down to the best picture.
PICK A FILTER YOU LOVE
Possibly my favourite tip of them all is to pick a filter that you are in love with. Filters (in my opinion) are the glue that holds an account together. They really can make or break your feed. A filter completely changes your photos and your account as a whole – making it, for me is the best part about planning out your Instagram.
How do you pick the best filter?
Firstly you need to look at the types of pictures you’ve taken / that you take.
Import them all into your editing app of choice (in my case it is and always has been VSCO)
Find a filter that compliments the images you take
Test out a bunch of different filters! Try them out and try to find one that makes your photos look as good as can be.
Apply that filter to each and every one of your photos!
Another little tip would be, to try and take photographs with a similar colour scheme throughout them. For example, this year I have tried to include very Autumnal colours throughout each of my photos; orange, green, black, red, yellow etc… Combined with a great filter and good photography you’ll easily be able to build a feed of gorgeous images!
