Look at the difference between these two photos. Which is more aesthetically pleasing khổng lồ you?

Photos like this look more….I don’t want to lớn say artsy, but…artsy. There is more trắng space to your picture (which is something you really want) và less sharp, awkward edges. Phone up at your head, camera hovering over lượt thích a bird’s eye view, và SNAP.

Turn off lamps 

When I take pictures in my room, I xuất hiện the blinds to my window and turn off my ceiling fan hâm mộ light. It’s a bit dark in my room at this point, but it resembles a cloudy day which is optimal for taking pictures. You can always brighten the photo after you take it, which is usually what I do in VSCO cam.

It’s better to lớn take a picture of 3 items strewn on your comforter, than 4. It’s scientifically proven that pictures of objects in groups of 3 are more aesthetically pleasing. Obviously, if you’re taking a picture of your desk, there’s going lớn be more than 3 objects, so this picture really applies lớn more flat lay options.

You kinda vị need a theme

I’ve said this before, but I hate saying “Instagram theme” because of the negative connotation with it. People just don’t want khổng lồ have to stick to lớn one type of picture – it’s really limiting. I think there’s a healthy balance with this “theme”. I think you want lớn take & edit your pictures similarly and maybe opt lớn include a few key colors as branding. However, not every picture needs to be exactly the same.

I love clean, white background photos and most of the things I photograph are in soft tones. But if you’ll look at my feed, every now & then, I need a burst of color to stay sane.
