EVER WISHED YOUR GRAM COULD LOOK AS GOOD AS THOSE WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF FOLLOWERS? WELL TODAY, YOU’RE IN LUCK.
Canon’s Through My Lens has taken a deeper look at the photographic journey of eight photographers who, today, have a combined Instagram following of two million.
But they weren’t always well-known. Through a combination of hard work and lessons learnt along the way, they’ve slowly mastered their craft, and gained a loyal following.
Here are their top tips for aspiring photographers.
1. “Instagram is a great tool for a photographer. Thanks to instant feedback from followers, the creator gets an incentive to take photos every day; each photo more beautiful than the last. And, look around: there are so many talented people on the platform you can collaborate with or take inspiration from.”
2. “A bit like being an athlete, you need a good work ethic. You need to study, to work, to seek out information. That way everything will work out.”
