4 Tips for Making Instagram-worthy Debut Photos

Consider these tips to make your photos a hit on Instagram.
PHOTO Nice Print

Photo sharing has been made easy with Instagram. Surely, you're among those who use the app to capture life's milestiones--and on your debut, you might want to share party highlights with your followers. Below are tips for making your photos Instagrammable. 

Use a creative hashtag
One way to have distinct photos is to have a unique hashtag exclusively for your debut (for example, #dianeturns18). Share your chosen hashtag with guests, too, so you can easily track down photos from your party. If you want to publicly share your photos, you can use popular hashtags as well. However, post only the relevant ones and avoid making hashtag paragraphs--you might end up getting harsh-tags in return. 

Go easy on the filter
Don't be a filter freak. While filters are fun to use, choose natural-looking ones--or better yet none at all. Your debut will be beautiful, and you want to capture that accurately in the photos. Enhance photos sparingly. To give variety to your Instagrammed photos, throw in someblack-and-white or sepia shots that up the drama.

Think of a catchy caption
What will make a nice photo even more likeable? A nice caption. Creating a catchy caption will not only emphasize the beauty of your photo, but it will also let your followers know the back story for the image. Think of quirky and fun captions to make your photo catch people's attention. Remember to keep captions short though--the photo should still be the highlight of your post.

Show some BTS action
Guests will be taking photos of your debut details as well, so you may want to post something different from everyone else's photos. Get everyone else excited about your party by also documenting the behind-the-scenes preparations for the party--but do practice resistance andkeep some details under wraps as well! You want to surprise guests at your debut, and that would be harder if they already know all the details beforehand. 

Have fun capturing your debut's events in photos, but don't let the photo updates take all your time! You should enjoy the party with the people you love most, not with your phone.
