What people like to see on Instagram

The 10 things that do well on Instagram are as follows:

  1. Symmetry
  2. Patterns
  3. Bright Colours
  4. Humour
  5. Motion
  6. Detail
  7. Great background
  8. Animals
  9. Food
  10. People

So I set myself a challenge to find a photo a day which exemplifies these qualities.  As it is law to stay local at the moment, I allowed myself to cheat and look at what I already had in my library, and realised that I had been unconsciously including them in my portfolio.  For wedding photography, landscapes or street photography whilst on holiday and family photographs, they were often featured.  The four images below show examples of how symmetry and pattern have formed my choice of subject.

And the following day when I was out in the snow I managed to find two new examples.
