Check out my 5 tips that will make posting your photos on your Instagram account like a pro!

Instagram, the social network to communicate and share photos and videos, makes me want to introduce you to the art of mastering and improving the quality of your stories and publications. Instagram offers to use its filters to have a more or less professional look, but this is not necessarily enough.

I’m going further and revealing my 5 tips for successful photos on your Instagram account like a pro!

1. Using the right camera : iPhone Pro or Camera, what are the differences ?

To take beautiful pictures, you must not make a mistake in the choice of the camera. Many already beautiful photos deserve to be sublimated. I’m going to talk about the different options available to you to become a pro on Instagram.

Are you more iPhone or SLR camera?  Whether you choose an iPhone Pro or an SLR camera to shoot your photos and share your experiences on Instagram, it’s crucial to take into account parameters such as brightness, composition grid, as well as the shot and angle. I’ll start with using the iPhone pro.

The majority of Instagramers share their daily life through their cell phone. Always at hand, it slips easily into a pocket or a handbag. It allows you to capture a moment. You can take a photo either from the Instagram app with all the filters offered, or from the camera built into the iPhone Pro.

As Apple says, the iPhone Pro has a pro camera system that revolutionizes low-light shooting.

The iPhone pro, on its latest iOS software version, allows you to achieve a photo composition worthy of a professional thanks to the various tools in place. A few months ago, Apple announced that Instagram now supports the Apple ProRaw format in addition to the JPEG and HEIF (High Efficiency) file formats. This is good news, because with Apple ProRaw, it is the image quality that is greatly improved. You will no longer have problems with image stabilization since it is able to do this itself.

However, I suggest to use the camera integrated in the iPhone Pro to optimize this new image format and to perform photo retouching if necessary, with tools such as Halide or Darkroom.

You will have understood, using an iPhone Pro with the implementation of ProRaw in PNG format allows you to make and publish photos as professional as if you were using an SLR camera. Let’s talk about the telephoto lens. The iPhone regales our pupils with its 65 mm telephoto lens that allows us to zoom in very tightly. So, you might ask, why invest in an SLR camera?

Some applications allow you to add Polaroid effects to your photos!

Apart from the price, the weight and the usefulness, if the goal is to share your experiences through photos without playing on the details or even to take photos that require the use of several lenses, go your way. The SLR allows you to have interchangeable lenses, but not only. It already has the RAW mode used by photo editing professionals that Apple decided to integrate into its iPhone pro. Some SLR cameras have integrated the wifi for a direct transfer of photo files.

To conclude on this point, everything depends on the budget and the objectives you set. The SLR allows you to take pictures with a resolution exceeding 16 M pixels. To go further and be a real photo pro on Instagram, you can find lenses to integrate with your cell phone. Find out which ones and how to use them with my second tip.

2. Use cell phone lenses

Because the quest for perfection is all about Instagram, using cell phone lenses becomes paramount. Even though the iPhone Pro mesmerizes us with two lenses and a built-in telephoto lens, getting a shot with a custom artistic effect becomes an almost perilous exercise without a true professional tool.

If you’re a beginner, opt for a lens kit that fits all types of cell phones. You can’t go wrong with these lenses.

If you want to invest in a telephoto lens to capture a special moment and give your subscribers a high-quality photo, go for a telephoto lens for cell phones.

The best photos are those that play with light contrasts. Here goes my third tip.

3. Use a light ring

Whether it’s natural or artificial, light plays such an important role in the clarity of your publications. You must focus on the lights, have the right angle of view, play on the depth of field and especially avoid taking a photo against the light. And if the weather indoors or outdoors does not allow it and you really want to highlight your subject, and thus perfect the photo, equip yourself with a light ring for drinking phone.

By controlling the brightness with the use of the light ring, you take care of your work and are sure to delight your subscribers. You add value to your achievements, and it even helps you gain popularity with your publications.

To be sure to be visible at the right time, it is crucial to organize and plan your publications. I’ll explain it all to you with this fourth tip.

4. Organize and schedule your posts

You create a real influencer marketing and become a pro on your Instagram account. You still need to find your niche and develop your style and business. I’m sharing these tips with you along with this last tip.

5. And above all, find your niche, your style and the filters to use

A niche allows you to position yourself on a specific market that corresponds to your style. One cannot go without the other. It is a real lever to become professional and find your place on Instagram. One trick to see how many people are interested in a topic is the #hashtag.

Looking for anything related to gluten-free? Search #glutenfree and see what the competition is offering. Standing out is your signature style. Another tip, use the filters that Instagram has available to you. That’s what they’re there for, use them effectively.
