Blogging and making videos changed the way I use Instagram a lot! Normally I would take a picture and post it whenever I wanted to. But know I have to think about my feed and how it looks with the other pictures I posted. Photography is something I really love to do. I want my feed to be a small gallery of beautiful minimalistic pictures. But how do you create a minimal feed and edit your pictures?
After I took a picture I upload it to my phone and then the editing begins. The app I use first is called Squaregram. I use a white border around my pictures to create a little bit more space in my feed. This app is perfect for white borders! I also edit my pictures with Squaregram. I use the editing tool and only adjust a little bit more brightness, contract, highlights and shadows. I depends on the picture how much brightness I adjust. Some pictures are dark and some of them already have good lighting. I also love to use the saturation and warmth tool. When you lower the saturation you will lower the amount of color in your picture. Most of the time when I edit an outfit picture I'll add some warmth. That's because my skin will get a little bit more color after I used the saturation tool. Just take a good look at your picture and then decide how much you'll adjust. The last tool I use on my pictures is the whitening tool. Especially with flatlay pictures to add a little bit more whiteness. It makes the picture look fresh and minimalistic!
After I edited my picture I upload it to VSCO. You can upload your whole feed to the VSCO app to see how it looks before you actually upload it to Instagram. Just a small tip for you guys!
