Tip #3: Tell a story

The best stories have mood and personality. Who or what is your subject? Look for elements that will pull the narrative together. Are your kids climbing all over Grandpa? Catch their smiles. Is it your weekly Saturday hang time at the coffee house with the gals? Think about how you might convey the warmth of the atmosphere—capture the steam rising up from your foamy café latte. Since it can be a challenge to find natural light in these indoor scenarios, try tinkering with editing tools to achieve picture perfection.

Give those in-app Instagram filters a go. They can really take your image to the next level!
