Aren’t you just a tad jealous when you’re scrolling through the Instagram feed and some of the girls are just simply just #pictureperfect? Like literally anything they do can be a perfect snapshot, from drinking water to even sneezing.
…Okay, we’re kidding on the last part. But seriously though, HOW DID THEY DO IT?
After some intense analysis and research (which is scrolling through the Insta feed), we’ve finally detected a pattern successful influencers exhibit in order to maximise the aesthetics of every shot. Scroll down to learn more!
1. Pose in a super hip backdrop
When we say super hip, it could be anything from a blank wall to plain brick background. It may seem a tad mundane on its own, but when combined with a strategic pose we are sure that your Insta likes will shoot straight through the roof.
2. Sit, squat, crawl…do anything but stand
Oh look, it’s yet another person standing right in the middle of the frame against a backdrop. How original is that?
Spice and shake things up a bit with a twist – flaunt off your fun and quirky personality through a variety of poses! If you’re uncomfortable with moving about with a camera in front, try shifting your arms and legs for some sort of movement.
3. Let your curls take the spotlight
Girls, listen up! One easy trick to immediately attract people’s attention to a picture is through the sight of beautiful strands. Yes, that means flinging and whipping your hair for a #pictureperfect photo! Not only it’ll look great blowing against the wind, the sunlight also brightens up your dye job that’ll get all the girls gushing over that gorgeous ombre shade.
4. Fake it ’till you make it
Okay, this pointer is a lil’ tricky to achieve, but do-able nonetheless. The difficult part is avoiding curious gazes from bystanders while you laugh awkwardly trying to achieve the perfect shot.
But trust us, it’s definitely worth the likes when you manage to capture one that looks naturally effortless!
5. A totally drop-dead hip #OOTD
Let’s admit it, poses can only go so far if you kept wearing t-shirts and shorts in your #OOTD shots. People crave for a fresh sense of style that can be carried onto the streets as well, so let’s give them that!
Looks easy, ain’t it? But honestly though, we feel that you’ll surely shine your brightest if you’re just being yourself, be it an awkward standing pose or a picture with the girls, so don’t worry too much with execution.
But if you’re seeking for a fresh sense of excitement in your shots, this shall be your fashion Bible. Stop being a snooze and start bringing on the groove!
