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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
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! 🙂
