How I edit my Insta pics?


Social media is a pretty competitive place so trying to get your foot in the door can seem a very long process. HOWEVER I have some tips that will help you achieve the best pictures and help you create an audience. 

1) THEME, yes the hardest part is creating a theme, but having images that match make your page look fabulous and will generate an audience. I always used to have a colourful theme that would change through the seasons or you can stick to white. Depends if you're a fashion blogger or just someone who loves capturing photos, CREATE A THEME.

2) APPS, the best app I got introduced to a month ago was 'Facetune', this app enables you to get those perfect white images, a trend everyone seems to want to achieve. Although this app is £3, so pretty expensive for a quick edit, depends how serious you are about your photos. There are cheaper alternatives, but I haven't come across any free apps that allow you to whiten an image to this extent.

3)BACKGROUNDS, if you're promoting fashion or accessories, backgrounds are key. I went to B&Q and purchased a roll of marble wallpaper, I then stuck this to a board to make it more sturdy to photograph. I am obsessed with marble, I'm sure a lot of you will be wondering what do bloggers actually use to get this effect, just get free samples of wallpaper or buy a roll. CHEAP AND WORKS A TREAT. 

4) LIGHTING, very very essential to a good photograph. Either buy lights you can place onto your camera or just photograph in a light room. This is why having a light background helps so much.

5) CAMERA, I always find pictures look a million times better when taken with a camera. Although, Iphones do have a pretty decent camera, I just prefer using my Nikon.

Finally, LAYOUT. If you're taking photos like the ones above make sure you position them in the best way possible. Its all about them angles and quirkiness. Add plants, literally anything and create a little set. 

I hope these tips help you out x
