We’ve all seen those Instagram accounts that show fabulous people living fabulous lives. You know the ones: the Instagram feeds that make you pause as you imagine how incredible their life is, while simultaneously thinking about how yours is so mundane. But what if you could create an Instagram that looks every bit as amazing as those you scroll through?
Want to live like an Instagram influencer? Dream of being Insta-famous? If you answered yes, then here are the tips you need to live that Instagram life.
Filters are Essential
Sure, Instagram is full of filters you can use to enhance your photos. But what if you want to take it one step further? To really get that Instagram famous feel, you need VSCO.
Before building the VSCO app, this company made Lightroom presets that were designed to be used by professional creatives. However, for the aspiring Instagrammer, VSCO offers a range of features and editing tools that are designed to make your photos look like authentic film images, for that on-trend Polaroid aesthetic.
All the Food
Does anything say Instagram life more than photos of fancy food? Definitely not! After all, if your food looks amazing, it needs to be shared.
To really capture the best food snaps, you need to scope out the most Instagrammable places – like these cute London cafes. This will elevate your Sunday brunch and provide the perfect opportunity to add an enviable photo to your feed.
Lots of Luxury Goods
What are luxury Instagram feeds full of? That’s right, luxury goods! Unfortunately, the majority of us can’t afford these designer items, but there are ways to get around this.
Follow in the footsteps of these Instagram fakers to build your following and live a life of luxury. Cheat by taking a photo of you looking in a jewellery shop window, test drive a cool car at Romans International, or pose in-store with a designer bag.
Nature and Landscapes
If you’re anything like us, then you’ll know the envy that comes with looking through a traveller’s feed. Featuring photos of private jets, white-sandy beaches and endless bikini shots, if only all of us could live this way. Fortunately, you can.
While you may not be able to afford to island hop, you can do this locally. From photos of you walking through a nearby forest, or a trip to the seaside, all you need to do is capture the right angle and slap on a filter.
Create Instagram Moments
Finally, the key to living the Instagram life is by creating Instagrammable moment. It doesn’t matter where you’re going or what you’re doing; they key is spotting those photo opportunities. For example, if you’re staying in, arrange your bedding, then place some flowers, a cuppa and a book for a cosy yet cool photo.
So, how can you live like a famous Instagrammer? Snap away, strike a pose and add a filter, to fake it ‘til you make it!
