INSTAGRAM – THE LAND OF VISUALS
Instagram is all about visuals. The pictures you decide to post to your account matter but it’s not always easy to come up with Instagram picture ideas.
That’s why I rounded up my top 6 go-to Instagram picture ideas for you in this post. On those days when you can’t think of what to post, you’ll have 6 more ideas to get you going. Okay, let’s dive in!
1. A CUP OF COFFEE (OR YOUR FAVORITE DRINK)
How many times have you scrolled through Instagram and seen a drool-worthy cup of Jo? Probably, many times! I think we can all agree that coffee, tea, lemonade, etc. just makes us all happy. It’s science.
When taking a picture of your drink of choice, be sure to use portrait mode. Make your drink the focus of the picture with a blurred out, interesting background. This is a super easy Instagram picture idea that can be easily executed any day of the week!
2. LOOKING DOWN
Taking a picture looking down is common on Instagram because there are so many variations. Are you enjoying a day at the beach or walking in your garden? If you have any type of interesting ground view, take a photo of it holding your phone at about chin level.
You can also take this same shot while holding something interesting in your hand and make it the focus. Then the ground and your feet will be in the foreground. The possibilities are endless!
If you have fresh flowers on hand, you have an instantly beautiful Instagram picture idea. I love flowers so any time I see them on Instagram, I always double tap!
Try styling your flowers in your home or holding them up with an interesting background. No matter how you style them, your photo is sure to be gorgeous!
4. HOME VIEW
I’m sure you have many beautiful little areas in your home. When you can’t think of an Instagram picture idea, take a picture of a favorite space in your home.
An added bonus to this Instagram picture idea is that it might just get you to clean up a few parts of your home. I know it always works that way for me! 😉

5. TAKE ONE FROM YOUR ARCHIVES
At any given time, how many photos are on your camera roll? Wow, that many! 😜 I always have thousands. You can use this to your benefit by scrolling through and finding a photo you may have forgotten about.
Even when you can’t think of a picture to take, you likely have many to choose from right on your camera roll. This is a huge time saver!
Everyone loves a good scenery shot. I try to take these any time I go to a beautiful outdoor place so I’ll have it for later.
There’s so much beauty in nature so you shouldn’t have a hard time finding things to photograph. Try mixing it up by taking closeups and landscapes.
