Your favorite pictures on Instagram probably consist of people traveling, eating fancy dinners, going to music festivals and so on. But you don’t need a DSLR to get a great shot, and you don’t need to have access to props and backgrounds. You can simply walk around your block or drive around your city to capture amazing Instagram photos!
1. Take a stroll around your neighborhood
I didn’t even dine here, I saw the sign from outside and stepped inside the restaurant to take the picture.
2. Simple is best
Simple pictures tend to do well on Instagram. For example; sunsets, skylines, buildings with great architecture, etc.
3. Take pictures of street art!
Natural light is EVERYTHING! The best time to take pictures is during the day, especially if you want a great quality photo.
4. Take Pictures of Your Food
You don’t need to eat at a fancy place to do this. Even pictures of your coffee or home cooked meals work. It’s all about angles, and the overall presentation of your meal.
5. Use these hashtags
Look up hashtags relevant to your city! This way you can draw inspiration for your next amazing Instagram photo!
For those of you living in Los Angeles, here are some hashtags I recommend. If you live elsewhere, try using these hashtags and replacing them with the name of your city.
Sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to get a great shot (except risking your life), and it doesn’t have to involve breaking the bank.
