Hey guys! Today's video is all about getting the perfect picture for Instagram! I get so many comments about how I edit my instagram [ESPECIALLY after my How to Look Good In Every Picture: 10 New Instagram Secrets video] Since you guys asked me to do an updated 'How I edit my photos for Instagram' video that's what I'm doing today!
This video is going to be my process on how I actually edit my photos for instagram / my instagram hacks for my grey theme.
This is how I shoot my pictures / what kind of lighting do I use, apps, filters, grids + more.
These are the actual editing secrets I use to edit my photos for Instagram.
The photo editing apps I mention: Afterlight, Facetune + VSCO cam.
INSTAGRAM EDITING SECRETS: HOW I ACTUALLY EDIT MY PHOTOS FOR INSTAGRAM
My instagram is a 'grey theme' but I wouldn't really call it a 'theme' as much as I would call it an 'allergic reaction to color'.
I shoot my photos in mostly grey / neutral / white areas.
Instagram editing videos might tell you to get professional lighting for your pictures, but natural / cloudy days are actually the prettiest lighting- and it's free.
I try to shoot my pictures in all the same type of lighting so they look cohesive.
EDITING LIGHTING: AFTERLIGHT
I always adjust the lighting in afterlight first: I use the exposure tab to make it lighter and brighter
I correct the color in Afterlight to make it as true to real life as possible.
Remove any color casts / redish / greenish tints from shooting outdoors.
I will use the whiten tool in facetune if the entire photo doesn't have a color cast but there are some specific tones /areas that are off.
Use the whiten tool over neutral areas that have lost their true color / to make whites actually white etc.
I use details in facetune to sharpen up areas that I want to pop: nails, bags, etc.
Use the same filter on all of your photos if you want them to have a cohesive feeling / 'theme' to them.
I use HB2 in VSCO cam for all of my photos at around 5/6.
CHECK THE GRID
I see how my photos look next to each other before I post by uploading them to my grid in VSCO cam.
This way I can make sure all of the tones match.
ALTERNATE DEPTHS OF FIELD
Alternate the depths of field between your posts to really give your feed a more elevated look.
Alternate between close / far / midlength.
Ex: If you posted a selfie, post a farther away photo next.
