I’m a huge supporter of the “instagram theme” trend… like, huge. There’s something so incredibly pleasing about scrolling through someone’s feed and seeing all of their pictures perfectly flowing from one to the next, each looking like it was taken in the exact same lighting. Here are a few tips I’ve mapped out for those of you trying to spruce up your insta account. You certainly don’t have to succumb to the high-pressure instagram theme trend, but if you want to, here’s how:
Determine your style.
“Style” refers to the color tones you prefer to showcase with your photos. Some prefer bright colors, others prefer more of a muted grungy look or images that appear to have been taken with a polaroid. Pick a style and stick to it like your life depends on it. This includes picking a shape for your photos and using it for each one. Personally I’m a square fan, but to each their own.
Choose your apps.
It’s best to stick to a certain set of apps when editing your pictures in order to achieve the same desired look for each. I personally use VSCOcam, FaceTune, and AfterLight for basic edits and Over for added text and doodles. Choose specific filters and adjustments within the app(s) of your choosing and use those settings for every picture you edit.
Pinpoint your interests.
What exactly do you want to take pictures of? Nature and health food? Outfits and brunch? I’m not saying you can only post pictures of certain things, but try to scatter those specific interests of yours throughout your feed, making your style clear to your followers and giving your instagram an appeal to others who possess the same interests – strategy, my friends.
