Taking pictures for your Instagram Feed.

I'm Lisa and one thing I really love about social media is that it's an opportunity to take photos and to create new images. I have always been drawn to graphic design and the visual arts, as well as to music. As a musician you probably already know how incredibly important it is to have cool, fun, high quality and eye catching images that show people who you are, and what your life is like. People dream about living the perceived glamorous life style of a musician, but they also like to be able to relate to, and identify with other musicians. I have found that some of the most popular Instagram feeds are the once that showcase the everyday life of other people. This can be done in so many different ways, but one of the most important things to keep in mind when you snap photos is that a great way to ensure your feed looks beautiful and interesting is to take extreme close ups of items. At first I felt like it was too extreme to do this, but the resulting images reassured me that mega close ups are the way to go. I've heard from several other Instagram gurus that they use this method as well. I've also heard that an important aspect of a good photo is to try out several different angles for the same image. Don't be afraid to try both the frog perspective, and bird perspective. Stepping up onto a chair is all it takes, no need for expensive GoPro flying drones, however, that would be fun too...hahahah

Below for example, is an image of an extreme close up of a lamp. This is not an item that would ordinarily make a person look twice, however with the extreme close up, the image becomes very interesting to look at, IMHO. :)
