I’ll let you in on a little secret: when it comes to Instagram, the magic is in the filters. Sometimes the filters are less noticeable than others, but a quick look at the feeds from all of your favorite Instagramers will tell you one thing: filters mean followers, cohesiveness and a more trendy looking page. My go-to editing app is VSCO, no surprise there! VSCO is used by all the best Instagramers, including @sincerelyjules, @LittleBlackBoots, @mikutas and all of my other favorites.
Navigating through VSCO can be a little confusing if you’ve never been on the app before. Luckily, it’s really easy to learn. I personally use the HB1 and A6 filters, but am careful to always increase the saturation and contrast to fit my aesthetic. HB1 is actually used by a lot of bloggers on Instagram and is their best kept secret. HB1 gives photos that effortlessly chic look, edited but not overly filtered.
I highly suggest that when using VSCO to shop through their filter packs. They’re extremely affordable, usually priced below $5 for a bundle of different filters. I’ll confess that I’ve literally bought 90% of the filter packs available on the VSCO app and can confidently say that all of them are amazing. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions on VSCO or using the app! Go edit your heart out.
