The Insights of Instagram

Instagram is a quick and easy way to express yourself through pictures. Since I am obsessed with pictures themselves this app appealed to me right away. I started posting on Instagram (you can follow me here) and was quickly addicted. I almost have to stop myself and say- Am I posting too much today?


Take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram- You can even share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. I started out using a few of my favorite filters.

My Favorite Filters: My go-to filters are Amaro, Mayfair, and Rise. They don’t give your pictures a super edited look but they still give that little extra something that makes your picture look better then the average take.


Not too Zoomed in, Not too Close.

Even though we generally like an item to be clear an up close it sometimes looks better pulled slightly back so there is a little bit more clarity with size and scale. (Yes the Giraffe is my favorite stuffed animal)


My Go-To Editor Apps

FOTOR: Great for adding text to the picture

AFTER LIGHT: Adjusting the colors, adding filters, and great frame options

VSCO: The most comprehensive editing app, tons of functionality and a strong community.

One of the easy to adjust apps:

TILT SHIFT: Instagram has tilt shift built in, but this app provides slightly more robust options.
