How I edit my photos for instagram

So recently I have given my instagram a little refresh and been trying really hard to keep it consistent. I think I have come to the view that I prefer photos taken with my professional camera in my feed. However, there is the odd times when I am out and about, see something cute and take a photo with my iPhone…..I wan’t to make sure I keep my iPhone photos as closely edited as I can do my professional photos so here is what I do…..

  1. I don’t use any of the instagram filters…..I know, I know they are pretty epic and looking at life through a Valencia filter is amazing, BUT it’s just too much for my style
  2. I up the exposure, reduce the highlights, bring up the shadows and then increase the contrast for a bit of pop
  3. Now and again I like to use the app FILMBORN also to edit the photo using P400 and then still do everything in point 2.

Try it and let me see what you think!


Love, Terri
