Influencer Series Part 4
Are you tired of waiting on your friends to take your Instagram pics for you? When they take them do they look crazy? Here’s 1 of 4 ways you can take your own Instagram pictures by yourself so you never have to rely on someone else again.
Equipment & Things You will Need
Outfit, accessories, props
(My tripod is linked below)
Location & Lighting (if inside)
You want to find the best possible light. I use a ring light.

If you don’t have a ring light don’t worry use a big window that brings in lots of light as your source.
Location(if outside), Lighting, and Set Up
After you have gathered all the equipment you will need for your shoot it’s time to find a location and get everything set up. I suggest looking on Pinterest and figuring out what vibe you are going for. After you know what kind of location google places near you or look on Instagram in location tags for your area. I also drive around and location scout before shoots and make notes for future shoots.
Picture Location Suggestions
My favorite places to shoot are parking garages, the beach, in front of flower/plants, and white buildings.
Parking garages are great on Sundays because there’s most likely not going to be alot of people out.
The beach is just always a vibe
In front of flowers and plants makes it feel like you are on vacation
White buildings give a clean city feel.
Using Lens Buddy
First download the app. After you have download the app pick the amount of photos you want to take and set a timer for how long you need and pose away!
