BLOG THINGS | How I Edit My Instagram Pictures

A question I receive frequently on Instagram is how I edit my instagram pictures?’. I already wrote a blogpost about this once, but since the way I edit my pictures has changed a bit I figured I’d write it again. I don’t do a lot of editing. Just the colors a bit, brightness, and some other things. No photoshop. Just VSCO cam and Instagram. Take a look at my instagram account @radiatefashion to see more.

One of the things I like to do is adding a filter while shooting the picture. You can do this with an iPhone. I always go for the one named fade. Then I open the picture in VSCOcam. There are quite a lot of filters to choose from, but I always use HB1. I don’t use it all the way, but most of the times +7. It depends on the picture of course since they aren’t all the same, but I do want them to look the same way.

If the picture is dark, I like to add some exposure. But not too much, since I don’t like it when my picture is over exposed. Then I add some clarity. I honestly don’t really know what this does, but I love the look it gives to your pictures. Normally I add between +4 & +7.

Next thing I do is adjusting the saturation. I like to show some color in my picture so most of the times I add around +1 or +2. Not too much since you don’t want the colors to look fake. I also don’t want my pictures to look too blue or too orange. That’s why I play around with the temperature of the picture too.

And that’s it. That’s how I edit my instagram pictures. When I open to picture on Instagram, I sometimes add a little bit more brightness but that’s all. Hope you liked seeing and reading this.

    It looks beautiful! I’m not a huge fan of VSCO, but everybody else is, so I guess I’m using it wrong. Maybe I have to try it again! Malou x

    Yassss, VSCO to the rescue haha! Ik gebruikte Hb1 ook heel lang, maar ben langzaamaan overgestapt naar A5. Voor nu dan, want over een tijdje wil ik m’n feed vast weer een héle andere look geven :’) Vind je foto’s idd altijd mooi bewerkt! X
