Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

1 Pho­to­graph a Feel­ing

Some of the most authen­tic ’grams evoke a mood or al­low you a bit of es­capism. think tex­tures, close-ups, cityscapes. ‘Keep­ing that con­sis­tent from pic­ture to pic­ture can be as pow­er­ful as a spe­cific theme,’ says naomi oku­naka (@na01223, 280k fol­low­ers).

2 Put Your­self in the Pic­ture

‘Make peo­ple feel like they can trans­port them­selves into your pic­ture,’ says Oliver Ve­gas (@OVUNNO, 410k fol­low­ers). ‘It al­lows them to feel some of the same emo­tions you felt when there.’

3 choose Your name Wisely

‘i would ad­vise you to check your ac­count name of choice is avail­able on other net­works, as then your ac­counts can feed off each other,’ says michael Schulz (@Ber­lin­sta­gram, 460k fol­low­ers). ‘hav­ing a con­sis­tent name means it’s eas­ier for your fol­low­ers to find you.’

4 mix Busi­ness With Plea­sure

‘en­sure you have an even split of per­sonal and busi­ness pic­tures,’ says Look In­flu­encer @danielle­peazer (1.2m fol­low­ers). ‘I try to give a per­sonal feel to any paid posts by work­ing with clients to cre­ate good con­tent that we’re both happy with.’

5 Wait For the light to Be right

‘Shoot­ing at par­tic­u­lar times of the day is so im­por­tant. use light to dic­tate the mood of your im­age,’ says em­i­lie ris­tevski (@hel­loem­i­lie, 720k fol­low­ers). ‘i’ve al­ways been drawn to golden light in the morn­ing or early evening.’
