Summer's got us bursting with energy and we can't help but feel motivated in the midst of a day at the office with these wellness essentials floating around. It's about time for us to fight the urge to patio hop with friends and move our muscles.

5 Steps To A Fab Instagram Photo

5 Steps to a fab Instagram Photo  //  Style-Architects

Do you ever scroll through your Instagram feed and long for your gallery to look like the ones you see from your favorite brands and companies? It's not too difficult to spruce up your IG profile, it simply takes a little practice. At SA, we've had plenty of practice crafting Instagram shots for our clients, so here are a few tips to nail your next Gram-worthy moments:

1 — Set your phone’s camera to ‘square’

Trust us, this will make your gramming life immensely easier. If you take photos already in ‘square’ format, it will save you the hassle of cropping later and missing a crucial part of the photo.

2 — Find a unique + intriguing way to take a shot 

Whether it’s styling it up or finding a neat background outside, the difference between a good looking Instagram photo is, well, the quality and uniqueness of the image. Tip: think outside the box, sometimes the most worn down and unexpected places make the best backdrops.

3 — Tap your screen to get the correct focus + brightness (PS — lighting is everything)

That little square on your camera isn’t there just to be annoying, it’s there to help you focus the shot. You will notice if you tap around the screen, the square will move there and it will change the perspective of the photo.

4 — Take more than one photo

Have you ever been somewhere and thought you got a really good image but you went back and looked later and realized it was blurry? Join the club. Take a couple images to make sure you capture a good one. 

5 — Edit before you edit

This sounds crazy, but it’s important. Taking a peek at your photo before actually taking it to Instagram is helpful in order to get the best possible version of it. We love VSCO, afterlight, and snapseed!
