Ever wonder why every photo on Instagram is so light and fresh and how they do it? They all seem to have a cute white background, perfectly styled items and look high end. I’ve spent a lot of time studying images on Instagram and I’ve picked up a thing or two along the way. I’m no photographer, but I thought I’d share a few of the tips I’ve learned. Here’s a peak into how I try and make my images more beautiful.

My apologies that this was filmed vertically instead of horizontally ( I should know better, but I was nervous, and after 4 takes when I realized my mistake I didn’t want to redo it and run the risk of messing up again).

…and I totally end the video like I’m leaving a voicemail message, haha.
