PHOTOS Instragram

In a world where moments are recorded and shared in a click or touch of a button, Instagram immediately rose to fame. It became so with its user-friendly system so that we could easily share our photos with who we want to. This generation takes Instagram to the next level by not only posting photos, but by having some fun with the captions placed alongside the posted photo.  Take heed from some of these tips, and grab some inspiration too from your fellow instagrammers' captions!

 1  Be open!

Caption: Weekend art trade
Don't be afraid of any of the creative juices and ideas flowing from you! It doesn't matter where you take inspiration from, so long as the end product is nice, it's fine. So long as you aren't copying the exact thing, it's fine! No to plagiarism!

 2  Harness your funny bone.

Caption: Ey shorety, it's your birthday. We're gonna party like it's your birthday.
It's got to be somewhere there! Channel your inner Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen De Generes, and bring out the funny spontaneity in you!

Show your personality and your life thru your captions; not just photos, so your followers can get to know you a little more.

It will definitely be evident if you are happy and comfortable with what you post. You don't have to take this too seriously, just enjoy it all and the memories of the photo. (In photo: Three sets of a pair of siblings)
