Instagram is a popular online photo and short video sharing application. Thanks to the ability to leave comments, this resource began to be used as a kind of social network.
Look for original subjects to photograph. Instagram is brimming with images of funny pets, famous tourist attractions, and simple fast food items. Try to take pictures of something that caused you surprise, interest, admiration, or even some kind of negative emotion. Use unusual angles when photographing familiar subjects.
Take multiple shots of the same subject to choose and post on Instagram one of the most successful. Experiment with lighting and camera settings, but don't post all your creative searches online.
Read a photography tutorial or check out tips on the subject online. Try to place your subject in the center of the frame, do not overwhelm the horizon, watch out for shadows and highlights.
Use photo processing software. You can crop a picture, change the sharpness, saturation of colors and apply the simplest effects using the Instagram application itself, installed on a smartphone or tablet. However, you should not get too carried away with filters, because their inept use can distort the photo, make it a popular print.
Since Instagram is essentially a social network, the success of your photos depends not only on their quality, but also on how you behave on this resource. Don't forget to add hashtags. Take explanatory notes for your photos. Chat with other users, reply to their comments and leave messages under their images.
