@Twitter -VS- @Instagram… And How To Succeed With Photo Social Sharing No Matter What

December 12th, 2012 by Christen

 

Now that the latest move in the social media gauntlet has been revealed – Instagram has disabled Twitter’s ability to properly display your images in Twitter’s feed, WHAT’S NEXT NOW? It’s very clear that the battle between social media giants, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook isn’t going anywhere soon and you can more than likely expect more “integration errors” in the coming months.  This could easily become a social media nightmare for those who rely on using these outlets on a daily (sometimes even hourly) basis.  But, you don’t have to let the social media squabbling affect your ability to be great!  Discover these tips, that’ll keep your Twitter-gram game tight no matter what!

 

 

Q:  With all these new sharing changes, how in the world do I keep up with easy social sharing?

A:  Master the use of each social media platform (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) SEPARATELY! 

The New Twitter:  Twitter has unveiled their very own photo filters that users can access after updating the app on their mobiles. Thanks to their photo filter partner Aviary, there are 8 available filters along with cropping tools and auto-enhancing features for Twitter users.  Learn how quickly you can enhance your photos without leaving your Twitter app below…

 

 

 

The Face of Facebook:  Use Facebook to share your fantastically-filtered photos. To do this, you can manually upload Instagrams to your Timeline or automatically sync up your Instagram account to your Facebook so all your Instagram activity will show up on your Timeline and News Feed.

Instagram is IN:  As one of the newest and fastest growing photo-sharing platforms to date, the buzz and excitement is still growing strong with Instagram.  Use it to your advantage by promoting your online Instagram page and growing your photo followers manually.  If pictures are worth a thousand words, there’s no way that Facebook and Twitter can compete with what you have to photogenically say!

How to Make Your Holiday Photography Fabulous This Season!

November 29th, 2012 by Lifestyle Staff

Do you love photography or just enjoy taking pictures, but feel like pricey cameras are keeping professional-looking photos out of reach? Here are 3 key tips sure to make your holiday photos look top-notch without investing in expensive equipment.

 

1.       Forget the Flash

Ever wonder why throwaway camera pictures have off-kilter coloring? Flash is your culprit!

Unless you’re shooting in the dark, forget it even exists.  Keep your camera steady and try to shoot in early morning or early evening light to get the best natural shadows and highlights from your environment.  Additionally, if your camera allows it, adjust shutter speed (a.k.a. ISO) to control the amount of light you’re letting in (higher ISO = more light = best for darker environments).

 

2.       Learn The Rule of Thirds

NEVER put your subject in the center of the frame.  Instead, picture your camera view as being divided into three sections, and keep your subject in either the left-hand or right-hand third. Also, remember the “halo” rule: make sure to leave space above and around the subject’s head so that they don’t look crammed into the shot.

 

3.       Know Your Angles

America’s Next Top Model contestants aren’t the only ones who need to understand angles.  An otherwise-boring shot can be instantly spruced up by changing your perspective.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Want to make your subject look more important and/or taller? Shoot from below. On the flipside, shooting from above can also make a subject look smaller, but slimmer, so a higher perspective might be the answer to soothing subjects with any worries, while also being fabulously spontaneous.
