Here's How to Take Cool, Intentionally Blurry Instagram Photos
It's the new #aesthetic!

We've already laid out several poses for you if you're camera-shy. This time, we're suggesting another version that's cool and highly #aesthetic. It's pretty easy, but you need to be a little more creative with how to use your phone camera (yep, no apps involved except Instagram) to achieve it. We're talking about intentionally blurring your photos!

Take a look at how celebs and influencers have been doing it:

Nevermind that it's mega-blurred, we think Nadine Lustre still looks hot.

One of her BFFs, Kiana Valenciano, knows how it's done, too!

Janella Salvador was in motion when this pic was taken, and we love the candid result!

Jennie Kim still looks very cute here, don't you think?

Dua Lipa's selfie is just too cool.

So how do you do it?

1. Upload your selected picture on Instagram. I already fixed the lighting and color saturation of my photo, but that step is optional. You can just do away with your raw photo.


2. Select "Edit," and then head to the "Tilt Shift" option. Choose "Radial" and adjust the effect until almost the whole pic is hazy. There will still be a non-blurry area left, so I just placed it in the upper right corner.


3. Head to the "Fade" section, and adjust the effect according to your preference.

4. And you're done!

    Of course, there are apps available to easily create this effect for your photos, but if your phone is running low on memory space, this is the best option. 

    See you on Instagram!
