There’s many factors to having the “perfect” Instagram feed, but the most important thing is to have fun with your photos.

Instagram, the social media platform we all know and love, offers the opportunity to showcase snippets of everyone’s lives through photos and videos. Instagrammers can connect with friends and express themselves using their feeds. The search for inspiration for trendy and stylish content can be difficult, but luckily we have you covered.

Whether you are posing with your friends before a fun night out, or photographing the majestic view of your latest vacation, there are a few things to keep in mind while capturing these memories through the lens. One of the most important aspects of Instagram is maintaining a consistent feed. Posting periodically will add more of a variety to your page, so don’t be shy to share all of life’s special moments with your fellow Instagram friends.

A key element of an eye-catching photo is the background that lies behind it. Because of COVID-19, it can be difficult to embark on adventures where you can spot the perfect picture-taking location. However, here in our area there are various hidden gems where you can snap a spectacular photo!

When the weather is warmer, inspiration can be drawn by the great outdoors. The scenery of the bustling streets, as well as local parks, can set the tone for an enticing Instagram post. Also, there are several sweet spots that are both COVID-friendly and fun to enjoy! These include pop-up shops, beaches in the summertime, and basically any unique place that may catch your eye.

Another factor that plays into snapping a successful Instagram photo is the specific angle it is taken at. Some techniques include posing off to the side of the frame rather than always in the center, positioning your photo at a fascinating diagonal, and focusing the camera zoomed in or out from the subject. These methods help set your picture apart from others, and truly add a “wow” factor to your feed!

Instagram is an incredible way to keep up with the current fashion trends and styles. Grab your camera, your favorite outfit, and your newly learned techniques, and take a show-stopping Instagram photo today!
