Let’s face it, the prettier your Instagram feed is the more followers you’re gonna have. Increasing your followers on Instagram requires you to post quality images and beautifully written descriptions and use effective hashtags. Here are some tips to transform your Instagram feed to look like a pro.
Make sure to always shoot in bright lights. Great lighting brings out details and vivid colors. Photos taken with the absence of light makes it harder for you to manipulate them and edit them. Make sure that you take photos with plenty of light. You can always darken them anytime or play with colors on post-processing. Look at your Instagram feed as a big coherent picture. To create an air of consistency among all the photos make sure to tie them together with a unified theme. You can use a consistent element present in all of your photos or stick to a specific color scheme or pattern. Your theme or your look should be something you like replicating in your photos.
Follow a consistent color pallette, keep your colors coordinated in every photo you post. Play with the same color for a variety of your posts. You can be a minimalist using single elements with a solid color background or use bright colors, the sky’s the limit. As long as it’s coherent with one another. Edit, use apps like VSCO or AfterLight to edit your photos. Making use of the same filter can help keep that consistency on track. Pay attention to contrast, brightness and saturation, shadows and highlights.
Crop if you can. Look at images and zero in on the important details. This can make a difference between sloppy and visually appealing.
Stay on brand. Avoid posting irrelevant stuff, while we’re tempted to post that bar photo with our friends or something that excited you about your day, make sure that all of your pictures are looking great and consistent with what you always put out there. Keeping it neat and dicsplined is the secret to your Instagram feed goals.
Play with depth. Your image looks better if you get closer or farther away from the subject, but experiment with taking these photos. Camera focus plays a key role here. Use it to highlight or show a wide perspective. Make use of symmetry and lines. Explore. Look at your surroundings and find inspiration. Great photos are usually taken from uncanny locations. Keep your eye on alert for the photos you wanna share with the world.
Last but not least build your arsenal. Batch your photos and take a lot of them. Instagram doesn’t have to be momentarily fleeting. You don’t need to post current content. That’s what Instagram stories are for. Keep an archive of photos that you can post at later dates when you’re trying to come up with content.
Everyone’s social media feed is different and unique take what works for you and build on it. Make sure that you ask yourself if whatever you post helps your total brand.
