Let me introduce you to my new Lightroom presets and photo style. Recently I’ve changed the look of my Instagram feed and the pictures on the blog. You might ask yourself, why? Well, as there are more and more bloggers every single day, I felt the need to change something.
Of course, nowadays everybody wants to be a blogger. I mean, the blogger life looks fantastic and luxurious. Receiving new products on a daily basis, just take a picture and that’s it, right? Some girls even tell me they want to receive new stuff too and ask me how to get it. I couldn’t believe that someone thinks that it’s that easy. I am blogging for four years now and it takes time and hard work to get brands to notice you.
While the new bloggers are popping up, I am scrolling through my Instagram timeline. Since Instagram has changed the algorithm, it seems that everyone is posting the same shit. Most likely because of the new algorithm that makes only the popular posts show at the top of your timeline. The result of this is lack of creativity. Everyone sees what works on Instagram and not. So most of you will try to create the same thing. Maybe you’re not even thinking about it, but you’re probably copying a lot that you’ve seen in your feed. I am guilty of this crime as well, but that’s going to change.
The first thing that popped up in my mind was using my Olympus Pen-F for all of my pictures instead of my iPhone. Almost everyone uses an iPhone for photos these days. So by using my camera my photos get a different look. Next, I again changed my editing for my photos. For all of you who don’t know what Presets is I will explain it to you shortly. Presets are the filters of Lightroom; you can purchase these on the world wide web. These ‘filters’ are created by people, and once you click on it in Lightroom, it changes the settings in your photo. I found my presets on FilterGrade, a website I didn’t know before I searched for it. I would recommend checking them out because they have fantastic Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions.
So, the coming time I will change my style and upgrade it. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired too and improve your social media game.
