For helping you to get wonderful pictures and get super popular with visitors on Instagram you need to feed people with good photos of you. The photos need to be so good that they make them say “wow”. However, you should understand how to take good pictures for Instagram before capturing the photos. It may be harder than you think.
The first thing that should you do is set up your hand phone or mobile. The things that you should prepare first are about the composition, editing, and lighting. Regarding about the camera of your phone, I think you should know about under-exposing the shot. It means that you can brighten the shot that you want by editing. But, before you edit this, you should, of course, set the camera on the best exposing shot so the over-exposure can be taken. Then, the photo posted on Instagram is not also created by using HDR camera.
Why can we do that?
Yes, because the HDR is hard to use. Moreover, if you are wrong in using it, your picture will look overdone and it seems unnatural.
Besides these things, when we talk about taking good pictures for Instagram, we also talk about the way of capturing the photos. The main key to creating the best photos for Instagram are based on the composition and the lighting of the image. The picture is said of having good composition when the viewer can be addressed to the subject of the shot.
The most important component that you can do first is turn on the grid. For getting successful composition, we can make the shot into 9 parts in the grid lines. Then, the next composition that is important is about using the palette. We can consider what theme that we will use for the image. Usually, the theme of nature and landscape is using cool palette. It will help the image very well.
The next thing that is important in taking good pictures that you want for your Instagram page is setting up the lighting. Actually, lighting can show your feeling in the image. You have to remember that the bad picture you capture will generally have bad lighting also. So, you should consider the lighting A LOT. I believe that you have known about how to set up the lighting on your phone, but I just remind you again that natural lighting is the best choice. If you want to take photos at dusk or dawn, you should plan the result in the light contrast or soft shadow.
Then, what are the best conditions in clouds or sunny? The best time for shooting is in cloudy conditions.
Just for the final tip to take pictures for Instagram, if you want to feed your instagram viewers with amazing photos, you can start with foodies’ photos. Just use wooden tables or marble slabs for putting your food or some food products, it will make your rather photogenic and is trending like hell at the moment. Increase your contrast and exposure composition then add just a little fade. And your picture will be awesome!
Lastly as we generally only talk about gym stuff here. If you are in the gym or taking a picture in front of a mirror for Instagram, make sure you turn the flash off and get a bit of distance from the camera. This way you will look a lot better!
