It's mildly interesting but I wouldn't have spent money to buy this.

Take your humble smartphone. Their camera can be used for so much more than taking a quick selfie or two. Smartphones Captured with rather uneven lighting, this is an example of a raw, unedited smartphone photo, captured with an iPhone No apps, no filters, just basic iPhone settings. One of the main differences is simply the level of brightness, which was very easily adjusted before capturing the shot. Designed to battle patchy lighting, it is vital to master if you plan to use your iPhone to make waves in the Instagram community. The HDR feature allows for crisper, detailed lighting which banishes gloomy, dim lighting from your feed.
More on this later. For those of you with a slightly higher budget and interest in photography, there is the option to invest in a DSLR camera. Limited cash, but still longing to live life behind a lens?
Second-hand models are not to be overlooked, with plenty of used but loved cameras in need of a suitable home. If you were to decide on the DSLR route, there are two staple lenses which are guaranteed to transform your Instagram feed:. Although small, this lens certainly packs a punch. Portable, powerful and possibly my favorite, this lens has the capability to brighten a photograph before it reaches the editing stage.
Lowering the aperture to 1. Below are a few images taken with this fantastic lens and edited later on :. Its secret weapon? The ability to zoom in and out. Okay, so not revolutionary for a lens I know, but for Instagram? Unlike the 50mm which requires you to move manually towards or away from an object, the 18—55mm will alter how you take flat lays forever. Instead of having to clamber on an old chair that may or may not collapse at the snap of a shutter, this lens can create the motion of being further away.
No matter what your budget, equipment or setting, it is always possible to create your dream theme. Ultimately, expressing yourself is more important, however that may look. The Page Anchor Instagram account has gone through several changes since it was first started in late Not only was switching themes a huge challenge while trying to post consistently, but it did not connect well with the Page Anchor brand. It felt very mechanical in a way and did not portray simplicity and heartfulness, which are two of our core values. When trying to find your style, our best advice would be to stay patient and try different things.
This is completely normal. When I first started my Instagram I took photos sporadically, with things I found around my house as props. I was always browsing Bookstagrammers I admired, and I noticed how most accounts have a specific style that differentiates them from others. While some might have bright, colourful photos, others may focus on staying minimal and not including a lot of color at all.
When creating my theme , I tried to portray my personality and create a theme around it. After a lot of experimenting with colors, light and editing, I finally found my style. One thing that helped me tremendously in taking pictures that would work together on my feed, was color coding my theme. I took some time to think about what colors represented me, then I looked at the books, props and surroudings my room that I had to work with.
Most of my books are black, white and blue, and my room is pretty bright and white, so I decided to have a cool, light theme. Of course, there is nothing stopping you from adding some pops of contrasting colors to your pictures, wear a bright yellow t-shirt for example. Overall I think the best thing you can do for finding your style and theme is keep experimenting, and look around you.
Having an aesthetic feed is just as important. A theme can be determined by anything, really: a filter you apply to all your pictures or perhaps a certain background you use. Just make sure that all your pictures match and fit into your theme. To me, having a nice feed is one of the main keys to success on Bookstagram. Think about it, when people stumble across your account the first thing they will notice is not the beauty of each individual photo, but the collective picture of them together.
If they like it, they are way more likely to take a closer look at your pictures or instantly give you a follow. Choosing and sticking to a theme can be very difficult in the beginning. When I was a Bookstagram newbie, I struggled a lot with it. To be frank, my account was one big colorful mess. It will help you get a basic feeling for what you want your Bookstagram to look like.
Do you want to use a lot of props for your photos, or are you more the minimalistic type? Is your feed colorful? Are you looking to use nature themed backgrounds or a clean white one? There are infinite possibilities, so just try to collect some ideas for themes that YOU consider to be aesthetically pleasing.
Once you start editing your photos, you will notice that similar styles of editing for all your pictures will make them fit even better into your feed. Try to be consistent. You might end up liking something unexpected. I went through many different themes before I found something that I was happy with.
My first attempt at a theme included white backgrounds and many props like Funko Pop Figures. I tried out different filters, attempted to take more minimalistic pictures.
The Instagram Wrap, Volume 43
No one expects your account to be perfect right at the beginning. To me, finding your own style is one of the most challenging tasks related to starting a Bookstagram account. There are so many inputs, beautiful pictures, accounts, and ideas around that it can be hard to find your own path. Sometimes we all feel the pull: the thought of copying and replicating that one particular photo that we love and admire so much, all to increase the beauty of our own accounts. I urge you to resist.
The key to a successful Bookstagram lies in staying original. Ultimately, it is what others will follow you for. To me, being original starts with thinking of something you feel very strongly for. Other people might prefer bright and colorful settings, perhaps reminding of spring and blooming flowers. There is only YOUR style. If you like tea, great, go for it! Make it simple and add everything tea related in your pics. Strive towards having people recognize your work before even looking at who posted the picture.
To me, being creative is a very important part of bookstagramming. But it is also one of the most challenging things to be. Creativity is far from a switch you can just turn on whenever you feel like it. To me, creativity usually starts with getting in the mood to take pictures. Often times, there is something that triggers it, like seeing that the light is going to be perfect for my pictures. Another trigger could be buying a new book that I think would look amazing in my Instagram feed, or the classic — running out of photos to post.
There will also be times where you might not be feeling creative. Here is my general process I follow when starting a photo session:. First off, I always like to take down books I think would complement my feed, or simply books I love and appreciate. Once I have my book of choice, I start pairing it with props that work well with the book.
To match the book, I used props that in some way can be associated with Ravenclaw astrology, plants, the feather pen for wisdom, and also the crystal ball which in reality is a lightbulb from a strand of outdoor lights. This can take many tries, but I always like to play around with the books and props I have around me. I find that having all props and books in sight helps a lot. Try asking your friends or family to model for you, or let them take shots of yourself. The most important thing is to have fun while taking photos, and by all means, do not make it a chore.
For days like these, I have a few tips that tend to work for me. Pinterest is such a life saver. There are so many amazing photographs to be found, and hopefully you will find something that inspires you. Remember to credit the original photographer if you decide to use a particular photo as inspiration and yours turns out very similarly! From time to time, my photos have a very similar appearance, as a result of me getting too comfortable using my bed as background.
Use your lack of creativity as an opportunity to try something new!
If you take most of your pictures inside, see what the world through the lens looks like outside and vice versa. Find a way to use it! Basically, try not to limit yourself to your usual way of taking pictures. Well, no. While Bookstagrammers pretty much always uses books as the primary objects in their photographs, there is so much more that can be done. Think about it, books contain a whole cast of characters, a story, maybe even a world completely different from ours. These are all great sources for inspiration.
