I know what you’re all thinking and, believe me, I think that Instagram has gone downhill since the algorithm too, but that only means that we need to step our game up to get our content bigger and better than it was before – who doesn’t want to improve?!
That’s why I wanted to give an insight into what I use to get my photos Instagram-worthy, because I am such a perfectionist and any old photo won’t do for me! I don’t consider myself a champ in any way so don’t take this as me sharing my wise words of wisdom, I just wanted to show how I get my pictures to a standard where they’re worth posting.
Instagram is, arguably, the best social media outlet that we have in our lives and I’m sure most of us spend countless hours on the app. Whether it’s scrolling through endless blogger’s wardrobes, dreaming of perfect holidays or compiling a list of your top 10 favourite dogs, it undoubtedly eats away at the hours in our day.
I for one cannot get enough and I always find myself still scrolling at 1am wondering where on Earth the time went. So that’s why I’ve decided to bring you a list of my favourite accounts to follow, spread the love and encourage a conversation – because we all know that the latest Instagram update has taken a beating on our engagement.
On Sunday, I had a day off and the weather was divine, so I decided to venture to Richmond Park and get some shots for my Magazine University Project.
The concept of the magazine is a health and fitness guide which doesn’t support the idea of diets or supplements but reinforces the importance of keeping healthy – by regular exercise and eating right.
I decided to go for a brisk walk to Richmond Park to capture some images of the various places to go for a run/walk/cycle and I am so glad I did.
The beauty of the park is something that I have completely overlooked since being placed just a stone’s throw away for University.
Sometimes just going to a place like this is enough to calm you down, cleanse the soul and create inner peace with any problems or troubles going on in your life.
I just walked. And walked. Taking photos as I went along to capture the stunning picturesque park in all it’s glory.
The sun was shining high in the sky and it was pretty warm, it was a perfect day to see the park to it’s full potential and document my walk with images that I am proud of.
I only managed to walk a little bit (I checked on Google Maps when I got home!) and I was completely astonished by the sheer size and density of the park itself. It covers over 3.5 square miles and is around three times the size of Central Park in New York – just to put that into perspective for you guys!
Whilst I was there, my phone died so I was just able to wallow in the beauty of the place and get beyond my thoughts, taking steps further and further into the stunning wilderness that swallows you up and throws you out somewhere new.
Here’s a few of my photos I took whilst there – bearing in mind they were taken on my iPhone 5, I think I captured some great shots. I’d love to know what you think.
