Start by checking out the Instagram accounts that inspire Mina Barrio and help her stay up to speed with visual trends on social media.

Next, see what kind of materials you can use for your photos, then learn the basic principles of composition as well as how to define your own style for your project.

With that style in mind, take different types of photos: realistic environments, the famous flat lay, colorful backgrounds, or simply places you visit. Mina also gives you some ideas for taking unique photos that can open the doors to a world of visual creativity.

Once you have taken your photographs, it's time to edit them. Mina tells you about the apps she normally uses: Snapseed, VSCO, and even Instagram itself. Once they are ready, learn to organize your social media well, planning when to publish each photo and scheduling your posts.

Finally, Mina explains how to get the most out of Instagram Stories, the feature that allows you to share short videos that disappear from your profile, which is all the more useful since they are practically the same tools you can find in reels.

What is this course's project?

Photograph and edit your own images following the style that you have established for your project.
