I have few followers comparing with the most popular style bloggers in the Philippines. Most of them range from 20K all the way up to almost 1M. What I like about their feeds are mostly their life updates, happenings and OOTD's. One thing that I am only concerned about is the identity of their Instagram accounts. I am not condemning anyone, but most of them have the same layouts, photos and concepts but sometimes differ in filters. From then on, I decided to change my layout for my account to stand out (even if just a little). If you would not mind, let me tell you the steps on how I post pictures on my Instagram account.
I do not normally take snapshots using my phone then post it directly on Instagram. Most of the time, I use my camera to capture moments in a landscape format. I will take more than 10 photos and then scan what is the best photo among them all.
Once I have chosen my favorite photo among the bunch, I will upload it on my computer and post-process. If a picture only requires minimal editing due to lighting issues, I always take advantage pixlr.com services. Moreover, if a picture needs more editing, I always use Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom. It will depend on the gravity of distortions such vague backgrounds, blurred lines and what not.
Once I am done with post-processing, I will upload the finished picture on my phone. To maintain the landscape format of my photo, I always use the app, Square Aspect. Once everything is good, I will now upload it directly on Instagram then use the filter "Reyes". Before, VSCOcam is my most favorite filter application before uploading it on Square Aspect, but the transfer of a photo from one app to another diminishes its quality.
There you have it! Hope you will learn something from me today. Please do not forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter @seftiburcio and please say Hi! :)
