Food & touristic sites are major attractions for Instagram likes.
Sure, it’s the platform where we gawk on pretty people and long for appealing, self-indulgent, wildly crave-worthy #foodporn, but a large percentage of the Instagram scene is covered with sceneries and beautiful destinations.
Giving a double tap to a picture of a bright hue-accentuated picture of a stripe of red telephone boxes in a busy London street is one thing, but to capture your own is an entirely different story. Pondering factors like lighting, viewpoint, and editing apps is key to stimulating travel hunger among your followers—and getting the social media credits we all hanker.
Take your background into account!
Backgrounds can make or break an Instagram. Brick walls, tile floor and nice wallpaper all make awesome backgrounds.
Realistically if you’re reading an article about how to achieve the perfect aesthetic, you probably take your Instagram pretty seriously. If you really want to post a drunk selfie of you and your pizza box, head to Facebook or Snapchat.
So If you don’t wanna fuck with your Instagram standards, here are Professor Dumbledore’s do’s and don’ts to “conquering” the magical shot.
- Color is your friend.
- Be straightforward.
- It doesn’t always have to be perfect.
- Leave the people in.
- A bowl equals likes.
- If it’s bad for you, it will probably look good on Instagram.
- Leave the surrounding details. They can actually surprise you.
- The actual location/place matters.
- More than one main site in a shot is okay, as long as there isn’t any clutter, and finally:
“Say no to the filter. HDR and sorcery like that is for amateurs and wannabes.”
