It’s time to face the facts: Teens are better than you at Instagram.

5 reasons why teenagers are slaying on instagram more than you - World Of Buzz 25

 

1. Their photos follow a theme



Notice how some Instagram feeds look cleaner and have a certain tasteful vibe? This is because the younger generation have aesthetics. They know there’s a trick to it: which is to not post randomly. They post unique pictures with a ‘bigger picture in mind’ that is, to set an atmosphere, when viewed individually or as a group.

How do they achieve this? Easy, they just choose and stick to a certain aesthetic or look. Think photos with a similar theme or filter.

For instance, the 16-year-old instagrammer below likes to run his pics through a VSCO filter, so they have a sense of continuity. It also looks polished and colourful, without being garish.

Another way for your Instagram to look polished is to follow a colour palette. Your feed will look infinitely more pleasing when the colours complement each other!

2. They don’t do multiple collages

With instagram’s new feature, you don’t have to post collages anymore, and yet, some people still do.

So how do you know the limit for collages? Well, if viewers have to squint to see faces in the photos, then it’s time to stop lah. Plus, collages usually don’t blend well when you look at your feed as a whole. So stick to single images!

3. They use white spaces to ‘declutter’ their feed

Minimalism is key! Whenever your feed get a little busy (which usually happens after events and group hangouts), remember to give it a little ‘breathing room’ by adding shots with a lot of white space.

Think of your feed as your home. If you have too many vibrant colours without neutrals, it will look too cluttered. So, space out your colourful shots for a cleaner, simpler feed.

 

4. Two words: good lighting

Want to take gorgeous pics and still use the hashtag #nofilter? Take your photography sessions outside! Improve your feed’s quality by making sure all your shots are well-lit.

For you makeup addicts, instagram is the perfect platform for you to try out unique looks that’s a bit difficult to pull off in everyday life. Use your hobby to create #makeupoftheday selfies that would really stand out from the rest.

6. They use creativity to give their pics ‘epic‘ vibes

Feel like you’re never in wanderlust places to take epic shots? Who says so? The instagrammer below was in school when he found out that if he tilted his phone on the hill at a certain angle, he could get a really cool shot of himself and the otherwise, ordinary trees at his school.

So your next epic shot does not have to be while you’re on a vacation to Peru. Try observing your surroundings and experiment a little with angles and lighting. Your random trips to the park or the mamak stall could be a work of art, if you capture it at a right angle!

 

7. They go all out with their #ootds

Don’t have to be shy shy lah. The tag literally means Outfit of the Day’, so don’t be afraid to find gorgeous backgrounds to match your lovely outfit. Aesthetic backdrops really adds to the overall vibes of your look, so  put in a little effort at finding the right places to take your #ootds.

Also, don’t be afraid to strike those vogue poses you only see on magazines and TV. Quit worrying about what people would think and just have fun with it. If you got it, flaunt it, right?

 

8. They put effort in group shots to really show #squadgoals
