A lot goes into snapping the perfect staged-but-not-too-staged casual Instagram shot. Our fave bloggers and insta gurus make it all look effortless. Here are 3 secrets behind nailing the perfect pic!
How to take the perfect Instagram:
Grab Your Bestie
When the self-timer fails, enlist your BFF or your sister to be your photographer. Have them take a series of rapid-fire shots (Burst Mode is your best friend for this!) while you’re having a conversation or enjoying a sweet treat. The results will be genuine and un-staged.
If you’re feeling stiff in a shot, it will show in your body language. Move around! Repeat an action, like taking a few steps forward and back, or leaning forward to smell some blooms, will keep your body relaxed and natural.
Grab A Prop
Don’t know what to do with your hand? Pick up a prop! A coffee mug, your pet, a cute bag, or even your phone – having something to hold and focus on will make you more comfortable and relaxed. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to show off that cute phone case!
