5 WAYS OF EDITING MY INSTAGRAM PHOTO

1:45 AM

Many followers and friends of mine often asked me about these questions;

‘I love your photos, they are so stunning / cool / awesome photos, what camera do you use?’
or
‘How do you edit your Instagram photo?’

I’m so sorry because I never really answered your questions on Instagram (you might think I am an arrogant one, that's okay to judge) then in the end it leads some people assumed that I’ve upgraded my gear from Canon SLR to Fujifilm camera (which already became popular gear for bloggers/photographers these days).
No...... I still use my Canon 550D, darlings. And as my apology, I am ready to tell you the secrets now.

_____________________


Since December 2014 I decided to edit my Instagram photos using VSCOcam because it's simply easier done than to edit them using Snapseed. I got VSCOcam fullpack from Succeed.Apps Instagram so it has complete filters / presets. I picked my latest 5 Instagram photos that currently in my VSCOcam library to show you the steps, it’s easy to follow.

NOTE : I never stick to one way to edit my photos because each photo from my camera has different results, they aren’t always the same trust me. Therefore I always experiment with the different filters/presets randomly & have fun adjusting the exposure, the contrast, the temperature, etc with VSCO tools depending on my liking / intuition / feeling.

___________________

1. VSCO preset I use : 06 / Legacy
First step, I usually crop my portrait photos into 3:2 on VSCOcam before I start editing. The second step I maintain to choose which preset I'm gonna use then for the next six steps, I go to VSCO tools to adjust the exposure, the contrast, the temperature etc -> save it to camera roll and open my InstaSize application -> choose the photo I edited earlier using VSCOcam -> share it on Instagram -> do the 9th step, before I post the photo I always use Instagram feature 'Lux' to make my photo looks sharper and strong.
2. VSCO preset I use : A7 / Minimalist
This photo is taken using phone camera (Brenda's Samsung Galaxy S5), so it means I need extra time to choose which preset/filter to use to make the photo doesn't look like a mess between the other photos which taken by my Canon SLR.
Edit on VSCOcam -> save it to camera roll -> open my InstaSize application -> choose the photo I edited earlier using VSCOcam -> share it on Instagram -> before clicking next I make sure to use Instagram feature 'Lux' as the finishing touch.
3. VSCO preset I use : 10 / Legacy

Edit on VSCOcam -> save it to camera roll -> open my InstaSize application -> choose the photo I edited earlier using VSCOcam -> share it on Instagram -> before clicking next I make sure to use Instagram feature 'Lux' as the finishing touch.
4. VSCO preset I use : K3 / Analog (my favorite VSCO preset/filter so far)
This one is very simple to follow.
Edit on VSCOcam -> save it to camera roll -> open my InstaSize application -> choose the photo I edited earlier using VSCOcam -> share it on Instagram -> before clicking next I make sure to use Instagram feature 'Lux' as the finishing touch.
5. VSCO preset I use : A2 / Analog
Edit on VSCOcam -> save it to camera roll -> open my InstaSize application -> choose the photo I edited earlier using VSCOcam -> share it on Instagram -> before clicking next I make sure to use Instagram feature 'Lux' as the finishing touch.
Hopefully this “Tips & Fact” post will inspire you to edit your Instagram photos.
By experimenting on my own, I found ways of editing that I really like and “it’s so me”. If you have any more requests for another “Tips & Fact”, don’t hesitate to let me know :)

Trick : Believe me or not by adjusting (+/-) heighten or lessen the exposure, the temperature, the saturation etc after choosing the preset/filter it'll make a different result, a better tone and more stunning photo (you'll see it if you try it). So don't ever stop only choosing the filter. Be creative.

Advice : Try to find your own editing style. It’s a way better if you can figure out your own than have to copying someone’s taste.
