5 Tips for Taking the Perfect Instagram Pic

Okay who doesn't *love* a good IG photo! 🤩📸 Get your feed looking better than ever with these 5 tips on how to take the perfect picture! Meet up with that one friend that always gets your good side, throw some of your PV swag on, follow these tips and you might just get your photo featured on our page! 😉

  

Tip #1: Lighting

For outdoor photoshoots, you'll get the best lighting either early morning or during that glowing golden hour peaking over the mountains we all love. 🌇 If you're shooting any other time of day, indirect sunlight is best to avoid the harsh lighting! For indoor photoshoots, look for places that have natural light coming through the window. Trust us, it does wonders! ✨

Tip #2: Angles

Make sure all your background objects and horizons are lined up straight! (ie. the shoreline, tables, walls, etc.) Nothing throws off a good photo like crooked lines! 🌅

Tip #3: Shadows

Make sure the photographers silhouette isn't in the shot. We don't want a shadow of someone's head in the photo to take away from the beautiful subject - you! 😉☀️

Tip #4: Background

Find a pretty backdrop like an open field 🌾 a colorful wall with flowers 🌼 an old building 🕍 the mountains ⛰ or our fave, the beach! 🏝 It'll take your photos to another level of gorg!

Hey so I don’t want to be rude but I’m a pretty big Instagram star I have like 100 followers just saying. But anyways those tips aren’t the best. The first tip said lightening⚡ and I’m just gonna tell you hot babes now before you go through the same trouble as me, that it’s really hard too get lightning in the photo two of the guys who were helping me out take the picture got struck by lightning and let’s just say I’m not sure they are gonna make it …. So RIP Justin and Mark love you guys you never know when the people who take your pictures will die.
