All of us have at some point in our lives been extremely jealous of dozens of other gorgeous photos filling our Instagram feeds. Snapshots that make us go, “Wow! Why didn’t I think of that?” Understandably, we want the same for ourselves. And given the fact that our millennial generation practically lives on the online world, the struggle is REAL to make your account stand out. But, don’t you worry as we have you covered. So, here's something for you!
1. Hold Onto Your Hats
Images that have a central point to look at are so very cool. They not just make for a better viewer experience but also give your eyes something to focus on. Leaving the psychology behind, having a hat in a picture gives it amazing ‘travel feels' and makes for a brilliant pose.
2. Sitting Pretty
This one is all about constantly experimenting with the frames in your shot to give it a fresh perspective. It could mean showing just your feet against a beautiful backdrop, or only half of you or even your whole body facing a gorgeous vista. Play with the angles and give the viewers a chance to see all that’s around you.
3. The Fake Candid
Been there, done that? Eh? If you get conscious while getting clicked, the fake candids could work best for you. Your side profile can be a really flattering angle or looking down while giving that faint smile. Oh, that can be sooo pretty!
4. Is Someone Calling Me?
One of the best things you can do to capture the attention of your Instagram folks is to make them a part of your story. This pose nails the theory on its head. When you are looking away out to the horizon, or the mountains, or the scintillating sea, you literally give your audience a chance to be in your shoes as if they are right there at the location.
5. Caught In The Act
You can think of this as the behind-the-scenes shot or what ‘real life' is all about. There's something too endearing about getting clicked at the moment that makes the viewers feel like they too are fully engaged in the scene.

6. The Ultimate Fashionista
Wake up the inner fashion diva in you and go all glam! Put on that jazzy outfit that you have been hiding in your cupboard waiting for the ‘right time’ (which, of course, never comes). Find a perfect background with good lighting and show off your personal style and oomph quotient.
So, are you ready to show off your smashing new clicks?
