7 Caption Personalities You Should Try on Instagram

Never have you ever feel flustered or even anxious to think about the perfect caption for your Instagram picture? Or maybe you are confused to decide what kind of personality you have for a caption on Instagram?

Worry No More!

I have tons of ideas to inspire your creativity in writing captions on Instagram and I am pretty sure you will be head over heels in love with them. Well, hopefully. However! There is only one thing to bear in mind that captions on Instagram are better relatable to the picture you upload. I have seen a lot of people posting pictures (e.g: selfie with duck face) but their caption says something opposite (e.g: broken heart quotes) –which I find it irritating.

You are a beautiful creature with a beautiful mind, I have always wanted to see that everyone is aware with that. Why sharing hatred and sorrow if you are still able to share happiness. Here are seven personalities that may inspire your writing proficiency on Instagram pictures:

1. The Poet

Who says poems are only for melancholic people? Not at all. If you have tons of vocabularies in your head, recognize those words from Shakespeare, or even have 3 or more language proficiencies, then poems might be good for you since I believe you can play with words. Sometimes I like to write poetic captions but I do not want my Instagram audience to interpret me as a melancholic blogger, thus I make fun of the poem in the end.

2. The Joker

Don’t take pictures too serious. It might have philosophy or metaphor or anything but seriously, chill. You only need to see every inch of the picture you have whether there is something to be mocked at or not. If there is, make fun of it and let your friends’ comments rolling on the box.

I swear my eyes were opened👀

3. The Forecaster

Remember that basic conversation you mostly have with a stranger? Something that talks about how hot or rainy the day is. Well you can put that to your caption. Go outside, take a picture and tell your followers how perplexed you are with the weather and be the forecaster of your own state of mind.

I have no idea whether this picture represents summer or winter or autumn or spring.

4. The Story Teller

Seriously, we mostly do not do things on purpose but somehow it happens because it happens. If you ever have those kind of moments, you can write them as caption and engage your followers’ attention about how weird your day has been.

5. The Stargazer

Cassiopeia, Canopus, Alnilam, Castor, and every single star or constellation you have ever heard. If you are that kind of person who likes to gaze at the moonlight and the starry skies in the middle of the night, pick one constellation and tell them how you feel about it. Or if you have a crush on someone, you may correlate it a little with the touch of metaphor.

6. The Food Enthusiast

Food porns on Instagram, totally common! But that’s how it works. This is a phase where people let the foods chill because they are busy to take picture of it for 15 minutes. However, that’s the way it is. I usually give a caption about how tasty or bad the food is and/or even mock at my own hypocrisy.

7. The Reviewer

When you love something, you share. When you hate something, you share. Basically, you are either reviewing your own life or someone’s life. But in this case, I am going to show my reviewer attitude towards a cafe I visited. It depends on how informative you want yourself to be but please bear in mind that Social Media ethic does exist.

That’s all I can get for you, guys! I compiled those captions on my Instagram which I thought it could widen your inspiration to be more creative yet enticing to attract more engagement of your followers. Remember that what you write is what you are in people’s perspective from social media. Then spread the love instead of hatred and sorrow. Have a nice weekend, guys! 🙂

How To Take Instagrammable Picture of Your Shoes

Remember the hashtag of #FromWhereIStand? Correct. This is where people engrave their creativity on taking picture of their shoes. And today, I’m going to tell you how I do it.

                             

Mostly of my pictures on Instagram are mostly the picture of my shoes, the pictures of where I stand. I’ve been having a knack of taking picture of shoes since high school. Until one of my friends 0nce said, “Shoes. As always,”.

People might think that taking picture of shoes or legs is a piece of cake. But actually, not at all. You need to find the art in your picture. I won’t distinct people with the experts, amateurs or beginners. In my opinion, the skill of taking picture is grown by how often you do it until you could learn how to take the best picture in time. Basically, theses are pictures of my #FromWhereIStand,

I like putting the touch of nature to one of my favorite converses. Flowers, woods and leaves are few of those common things that I am really fond of.

Besides showing your shoes off, taking picture of #FromWhereIStand could also help you to show your bottom apparel, not limited to such as trousers, skirts, bags, scarfs or even watches.

Last but not least, don’t forget to look around the floor that you find artsy. There are some unique pattern of floors like I found above and I didn’t forget to take a few seconds for a picture, because who would regret it? 🙂

Instagram Guide for Black & White Feed

Craving for Black and White feed on Instagram? You’re simply on the right page!

Since I have received tons of request for photo editing guide after “VSCO Filters that Fashions Bloggers Use on Instagram” has been the most hit blog-post for the last few months until now, I decided to create one instagram account for your instation (Instagram Inspiration)!

                                       

Black and white are people’s favorite monochrome colors. Until I once heard a phrase saying, “I will stop wearing black until I see darker color”.

That sounds legit.

Alright, without any pleonastic intros, I divided 3 simple steps to help you achieving the perfect instagram feed that you’ve been yearning for!

STEP 1 

Go outside, take pictures, collect moments and sift the best ones. The first photo editor I always (until it has become an obligation) use is Snapseed. For an example, I will edit a picture of coffee that I took a few weeks ago.

1 (1)

I usually adjust the brightness, contrast, ambience, highlights and shadows with this photo editor because it gives the best of the best resolution of the picture you want to edit. And that’s why I love to use this app so much!

STEP 2

When you’ve got your own perfect resolution, you better move to VSCOCAM. I am definitely sure that everyone is already familiar with this app.

2 (2)

For B&W feed, I prefer to use B5 filter because the color of black in this filter looks very dense. B5 is a free filter by VSCOCAM, thus you can download it anytime you want. Besides that, I usually adjust the strength of filter to +8 for maximum or +5 for minimum. And also, add a little touch of fade effect for approximately +3 or +2 if you want to lower the contrast.

STEP 3

One more step for photo editing. The last photo editor that I use is Afterlight. If you want to give a little touch of frame around your picture, you may add it for approximately +35.

3 (3)

For the shape of its frame is definitely up to you. You can use round, hexagonal, triangle or anything. I prefer square because I want to accentuate more the essence of the picture not the art of the picture itself.

STEP 4

People usually post quotes to express what they’re feeling at the moment, but to me, not really. I use quotes to intensify the aesthetic touch for my instagram feed. Thus, I usually keep several quotes on my phone before uploading it.

4 (4)

After the picture has been perfectly edited, now it’s time for you to adjust your instagram feed. I wanted to create a chess feed, and I finally found the pattern for this feed, :

with frame + no frame + with frame + no frame + quote + no frame + with frame + no frame + with frame

But however, you can imagine it by yourself for your own perfect feed. And this is how mine looks like,

5 (5)

Voila! Interested enough to do the following guides? If you are, you can get yourself updated with the latest instagram feed on @lefleurenoire because I will update more new filters with different aesthetics for your instation! 🙂

VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use On Instagram

Have you been thinking about what filter that your favorite fashion bloggers use for their pictures on Instagram? This time, I am going to reveal three classified VSCO filters that these fashion bloggers (whom I like) always use on instagram.

So I’ve been keeping up with VSCOCAM by drowning my skill into its nitty gritty. Isn’t it so boring to see the same old filter such as F2, SE3, HB1, HB2, etc without any retouch and that’s it. Then I’ve finally found a few awesome patterns which I think these patterns are quite but surely similar with the filters that these fashion bloggers always use on Instagram, okay so let’s get started!

1. Andy Torres (@stylescrapbook)

Her posts on instagram are always adorable which always make people say “her pictures are goddess!”.

HB1 doesn’t look good for dark pictures but looks good for selfies. As you can see on Andy’s pictures, the original pictures of its filter is bright already, so if you want to restart your instagram feed with this filter, I suggest you to take more bright pictures.

2. Nicole Ciotti (@nicholeciotti)

Nicole’s pictures on instagram look reddish and bright. It’s also because of her reddish hair and the effect of the filter she uses, I assume she uses SE2 or C1 preset on vscocam.

C1 looks good for selfies if you add a little bit of exposure around +1 or +2 and lowering the sharpness of C1 preset from +12 to +6 or +7.

3. Gizele Oliveira (@giizeleoliveira)

Looks fade and reddish without a touch of contrast. I assume she uses F2 for her pictures.

F2 might give different result for particular skin color since its high contrast with a little touch of fade could make your skin darker or probably brighter. This filter pattern looks perfect for summer pictures.

What do you think about these filters? I hope you find them useful!

Take some great pictures, try to use one of these filters and take a chance to be like these fashion bloggers too. Before taking my cue to leave, check out a short documentary film of mine to check out the color grading in video I usually use for vlog,

Hope you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for watching x
