Tips for Editing and Posting Photos on Instagram – The perfect image is an image that has a good composition of lighting, colors, and atmosphere. However, can ordinary users make a post that displays an Instagrammable image?
1.Make sure there’s enough lighting
Make sure the object you take has sufficient lighting. Prioritize natural lighting over artificial light, for example from sunlight. Basically, natural lighting will always add to the beauty of the object.
2.Choose the most dominant object
If there is enough light, choose the most flashy or prominent object. In other words, choose a photo object that may be dominant in a frame. For example, take a photo that shows a symmetrical object, a flat shape, or the largest object, such as a building, house, tree, and so on. An emotional approach in taking photos is also needed in order to put “feel” in a photo. As shown in the image below with a symmetrical object.
3.Use additional editing apps
Want to edit a photo that has already been taken? Instagram’s default photo editing feature isn’t sophisticated enough? Use another application. Many free apps out there are feature-rich, like Snapseed and Adobe Photoshop Mobile. Users can then take advantage of various features in the software, which may not be found on Instagram. There are also applications that offer simple photo editing facilities such as InShot, PhotoGrid, and others
4.Take advantage of the Grid feature
Grid or the appearance of lines in the main camera interface or photo editing window display, may often be underestimated. In fact, this feature is very useful for adjusting the symmetry and alignment between objects in an image, so that they do not overlap.
5.Observe the object shot with your eyes
Most people always take a picture before they see the object they want to photograph. Maybe it would be better if the user also felt by observing the surroundings first, before snapping. That way, users will get inspiration and ideas from their observations because the eye works like a camera lens.
6.Avoid excessive “editing”
Photo editing is intended to beautify the image. But too many edit effects (over-edit) will fade the naturalness of the photo. Make use of basic enhancement tools, such as contrast, shadows, warmth, and highlights in editing moderately. Although this is a basic feature, increasing one aspect, such as excessive contrast, will result in an unsightly photo. Keep one aspect balanced with another at this setting.
7.Add effects and try different filters
Effects and filters on Instagram and other photo editing applications are an additional feature to reveal the creative side of users.
Apply some of the effects and filters that exist in the editing application and feel and observe the difference. But keep in mind, the intensity of the filter can be adjusted and should not be set at the maximum level.
8.Prioritize quality over quantity
Posting as many pictures as possible on Instagram will not help the uploader become good at snapping. Pay attention to the composition of the photo, ambient lighting, and environmental conditions before snapping. Most importantly, do not rush so that the focus of the photo is not blurred or blurry.

Points of Shooting Landscape Photography – Landscape photography is a photo shoot with a landscape view, landscape photography is often used for photos of natural beauty.
Each genre of photography has different needs. For example, the lenses needed for photographing wildlife photography and still life photography are certainly different. Likewise with landscape photography, aka landscape photography.
Landscape photography is a genre that focuses on portraits of nature, such as mountains, sea, forests to the sky. See the explanation from Ading Attamimi, Nikon Indonesia Official Photographer in the Nikon Online Learning Program.
1. A tripod is a must-have photography accessory
Street photography enthusiasts may not need a tripod because they have to capture the moment very quickly. However, a tripod is the best investment for landscape photography. A tripod will keep the camera steady and avoid unwanted shake.
2. What are the basic settings for landscape photography?
The settings used to shoot landscape photography are certainly different from other genres. Pay attention to the exposure triangle, which is a combination of ISO, shutter speed and aperture.
Ading Attamimi suggests setting the ISO at 64-100 and the aperture at f / 8 to f / 18. Meanwhile, the shutter release adapts to our photo concept.
3. It is recommended to have at least 2-3 filters
We have to deal with nature when shooting landscapes. Sometimes, the lighting is too bright and even the lowest ISO can’t handle it. At least, there are three types of filters commonly used for landscape photography, namely graduated neutral density (GND), neutral density (ND) and circular polarisers (CPL).
4. Shooting in RAW format is recommended
In photographing landscapes, the recommended setting is to shoot in RAW format, select Adobe RGB Color Profile, set Auto Focus to AF-S Single Point with Auto White Balance and use Manual Mode. Why are we recommended to shoot in RAW format?
Why use Auto White Balance? Unlike shooting in a studio, outside lighting is not adjustable. If the light changes within one minute, it is impossible to change all the settings. Auto White Balance will make it easier to adjust the color to the original conditions, without the need to overhaul the settings again.
5. Landscape photography can be a profession, although it is not very common
Can the profession as a landscape photographer be as profitable as someone who takes part in wedding photography? Although not very common, landscape photography can be a great source of income.
Usually, photographers will get job offers from government agencies, hotels, flight operators to cruise ships. So, which one is more important, whether a body or lens upgrade for a landscape photographer?…
Fashion Photography Tips from Rio Motret – Rio Motret is one of the most well-known professional photographers in Indonesia, Rio MOtret has often been used, from models to artists.
Fashion photography plays an important role in the entertainment and fashion industry. Without the ability to process images, there would be no beautiful portraits that often adorn magazine pages or advertising billboards on the street. One of the well-known fashion photographers in Indonesia is Rio Wibowo or better known as Rio Motret.
Rio is a professional photographer who is a favorite of Indonesian artists and celebrities. Through the Nikon Online Learning Program which was held online last Saturday (25/4), Rio also shared his story as a fashion photographer. Listen, let’s!
1. Prepare the “combat equipment” in advance
Before starting the execution, of course we need to prepare the gear first. The three main Rio cameras are the Nikon Z7, D850 and D750. Meanwhile, the lenses that Rio uses most often to shoot fashion and portraits are 24-70mm, 50mm, 85mm and 35mm.
Meanwhile, Rio’s favorite lighting accessory is a beauty dish. There is also a standard reflector and octabox. For those who want to start as a fashion photographer, Rio suggests having a reflector. Besides being able to reflect light and make photos softer, reflectors are very light and easy to carry everywhere.
2. Then, draft your photo
Next, draft your photo concept. This concept consists of a mood board, model, set up, make up, wardrobe and accessories. According to Rio, we can create any concept, because we can freely work and express something in the form of fashion photos. This photo can be made into blur, grain, black & white, or vintage, according to the desired concept and still look artistic.
This mood board is made in the form of a picture collage. For example, if we want to take pictures with a silver concept, then look for inspiration for make-up, wardrobe and similar colored accessories. Then, adjust the hair do and photo background.
3. Choose a model that can convey this concept well
The next step, choose a model that can convey your concept well. According to Rio, a model does not have to be beautiful or handsome, but must match the character you are looking for. For example, the concept that was delivered was fierce, so look for a model that has certain facial characteristics such as a firm jaw or sharp eyes.
Meanwhile, male models tend to have masculine characters. As a result, lighting adjustments need to be made, for example, made dramatic, with harsh lighting, dark skintones and shadow. Of course, this is only a general description, because you can create a concept where women look masculine or men emphasize their feminine side.

4. In order not to get bored, don’t use a plain background too often
After the concept is obtained, let’s move on to the set up. Rio suggested that we decorate the set up according to the concept. Because, if you only rely on a plain background, we will quickly get bored. So, what is Rio’s suggestion for the set up and background decoration?
To take portraits, we don’t need to set up too big, just 1×1 meter in size. Another way is to tear the background or throw the cloth to get around it so it doesn’t look boring. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, really!
5. Do not forget the wardrobe, accessories and make up, so that the photos look “telling”
According to Rio, the wardrobe is the strongest supporting element in fashion photography. He gave an example of the Pandawa Lima photo concept which involved several Indonesian actors. In the photo, you can see a wardrobe in the form of traditional Javanese clothing combined with batik cloth as a subordinate. Not to forget, bows and arrows to reinforce the concept of the photo.
So, where did the costumes come from? According to Rio, we don’t have to buy, but we can borrow from designers. You can also borrow clothes from students majoring in fashion design.
If the clothes you need are simple and can be purchased on the market, Rio suggests buying them. And of course, don’t forget to mention the brand or designer when the photos are uploaded to social media, as a token of appreciation.…
