Nostalgia is a prevalent trend even when it comes to photography. In the past two years, analog or film-like filters have dominated Instagram—the more candid and grainy, the better and more “aesthetic.” Which is why instant cameras have become a staple for some photo enthusiasts; holding a printed snap definitely has some novelty to it! But if you’re wary of wasting film and want to get the shot right on your first click, we caught up with Leila Alcasid, Ylona Garcia, and Angelina Cruz during an #InstaxHangouts sesh to score some foolproof tips!
In a nutshell, these girls suggest you practice these tricks to make sure your photos always look IG-worthy once printed!
1. Make sure your outfit matches your background. For a picture-perfect Instax, there's some merit in coordinating your total look with your chosen location!
2. Always check the lighting and cropping! You don't want to get your shoes or head cut off from the photo.
3. Have confidence! Ylona and Angelina believe that feeling your best makes all the difference when posing for a pic.
