1. How to take better Instagram Photos

Would you love to have better pictures in your Instagram feed?  It’s easy to improve your photos for Instagram and you can start by following these 5 simple steps.  

  1. Lighting is the key. Make sure your subject is near a window if inside, but not in direct light.  If you are outside, shoot in the shade to avoid harsh shadows.  Avoid shooting at night when possible, the low light availability causes blurriness in your images. 
  2. Don’t use the Instagram camera. Instead, take your pictures with your camera’s phone or even using the Camera+ app.  Both will create better images that have more clarity.  Then select them from your photo album once you are in Instagram.
  3. Use better editing apps. Instagram’s filters have been outdone by better apps including VSCO, Camera +, Photoshop Express, and many more.   If you want to up your photography game, then you need better filters and editing options.  READ MORE…
