Become the protagonist behind your camera and communicate in a more personal way on social media

It's been proven that the most successful photos on Instagram are the ones that you are in. However, when you become the center of attention, you often become more critical of yourself and your surroundings. Mina Barrio, product photographer at Melon Blanc and social media expert, shows you how to step out from behind the camera and become a protagonist in front of it.

In this course, learn how to take engaging selfies and video selfies from scratch. Mina teaches you important concepts about light, settings, flattering angles, and how to pose with more natural expressions. Master these techniques to make your communication on Instagram more personal and capture your life experiences as memories for both you and your followers.

If you want to learn more about how to maximize your content on this platform and take your brand to the next level, check out Mina's other three courses on Domestika: Professional Photography for Instagram, Content Creation and Editing for Instagram Stories, and Mobile Photography and Visual Identity for Instagram.
