Hey everyone! Who doesn't love a good Instagram feed, amirite? Ever since I started my blog, I wanted to have a nice feed that expressed what my blog was about. It wasn't until now that I feel like my feed looks nice and represents Lots of Lys. Here's a picture of it (follow me @lotsoflys):
Step 1: Taking the Picture
I take most of my Instagram pictures on my iPhone 6, unless it's a picture from a blog post. If it's from a blog post, then I used my DSLR camera, which is a Nikon d3200. If I take the picture on my phone then I try to take it on "square' mode, unless I forget. It's super important to take multiple shots in case the first one doesn't turn out well (it almost never does).
Step 2: Editing
I only use VSCO Cam for editing my pictures. I have gone through various filters and tools, but I have figured out my "signature edit": +1 the Exposure, +1 the Contrast and +1 the Temperature. Here's the difference between the pictures, and after I cropped a few.
After I edit, I save it to my camera roll and usually "test post" on Instagram (post to see how it looks with my other pictures and then delete really quickly). If it looks good then I come up with a caption and post!
How do you edit your Instagram pics?
