Hello beautiful dolls!
Welcome back to my little blog!
Instagram is my favorite social media platform, but you already know that. I love playing with my feed all the time. I like to say that my instagram feed is my canvas. And I also like to say that my instagram feed is my business card, but we will talk about this on another upcoming post. So, today I will share with you a few tips on how you can build an aesthetically pleasing feed. There are two major ways to do this. You can achieve a pleasant looking feed by playing with filters or by using a grid layout. I’m going to talk about both methods and then I will give you some extra tips if you want to take your feed game to the next level. But I will split this post in two parts, just to make it more easier for you to read. For this topic, I’m going to use some examples from our #dollstagram community.
So, let’s dive in, dollstagrammers!
METHOD NO 1 – FILTERS
The easiest way to achieve a pleasant looking instagram feed is to use ONLY ONE FILTER/PRESET. That’s literally the easiest thing you can do, in order to make your feed prettier. But there’s something important that you need to keep in mind if you want to use a single filter. Make sure the amount of light in your photos is the same. Make sure that the colors are pretty much the same or that you have at least one repetitive color in every photo. You can have repetitive colors in your photos by using the same diorama/backdrop. I did that last year, with my spring, summer and autumn theme. See how I used the yellow roses and the pink tulips as a repetitive color for my spring themes last year? As for the summer and autumn themes, it was enough to use the same diorama.
Here are some more examples for you to look at. Looks like these talented girls, @dollsflowers_shop and @fandoll1315 are already doing all the things I mentioned above. Look how beautiful everything looks! Same light, same colors, same presets! PURE PERFECTION if you ask me!
METHOD NO 2 – USE A GRID LAYOUT
What is a grid layout? A grid layout is how your posts are positioned in your feed. There are several types of grid layouts that you could use. For example: squares, row by row, line in the middle, borders and so on. I’m going to use some examples from our #dollstagram community to show you different types of layouts, starting with mine.
My feed it’s a combination of two layouts. First one is the square layout, which means I am not using borders for my pics and you see them as full squares. The second layout is the row by row layout, and by that I mean that every row has 3 pictures focused on the same subject/doll. Have you noticed that? Even if in some pictures you might see more than one doll, the row is focused on one character only.
Now, let me show you another type of feed layout. The borders layout. My talented friends @pink.plastic and @matil_doll make the perfect example for this category. Take a look! See how they use that border around photos? This grid gives you a whole different look for your feed. And it doesn’t even matter if you’re using the same preset or not. By simply using this type of grid, you can make your instagram feed a lot more interesting to look at. It is really unique – I love it!
Now, if you want to step up your game even more, there are more things you can do. But we will talk about that in PART II. So keep an eye around here. You can always subscribe to my blog if you want. By subscribing, you will never miss a post because they will be delivered straight to your inbox.
That would be all for today. Thank you so much for reading my blog. It means a lot to me!
See you soon for PART II dear dollies!
