It’s already August, which means the summer season is flying by. Your Instagram is living proof of what you’ve ticked off of your summer bucket list. It doesn’t matter if you’ve accomplished a decent amount of your to-do or if you haven’t even started yet, there’s still time to amp up your feed! Here are 7 things to take a picture of before summer’s over:
- A frozen treat
What better way to cool down in the summer than with a frozen treat? Whether it’s a scoop of ice cream melting between two humongous cookies, a nostalgic popsicle from a passing ice cream truck, or a frozen margarita in a fishbowl glass, these summer treats certainly make for a Grammable moment. Capture your frozen delight with a cityscape background or against a white wall for contrast. Make sure it’s a quick photo so it doesn’t melt too quickly!
- A sunset
It’s always special when you can catch a sunset. We’re in the dog days of summer right now (these hot, sultry days are based on the heliacal rising of the Sirius star), which means you can find some gorgeous sunsets across the United States. Head to a local waterfront to capture the perfect sunset photo. The best part? No filter required.
- A boat shot
Nothing says summer like taking a ride on a boat. A cool breeze in your hair, the smell of the salt water, and a drink in your hand. When you’re in the depths of winter reminiscing on warmer days, snapshots from boat photos are the ones you’ll look at longingly.
- Under the sea
Whether you’re snorkeling in the Caribbean or taking a dive in the pool with your friends, get your hands on a SeaLife Camera and snap an underwater photo. These cameras take clear images of photos you wouldn’t be able to capture otherwise. From colorful coral to your best friend’s cannonball, you’ll be guaranteed triple digit likes with an underwater shot.
- Candid snapshots of your friends and family
Switch up your feed from photos of your summer self and scenery. Instead, post a candid of your friends and family. Catch them while they’re enjoying summertime fun like fishing or swimming. These photos are more natural and more fun to look back on, capturing memories you may not have even realized were being created.
- The book you’re reading
Book clubs are extremely popular, especially on social media. Many people have been sharing their summer reads with their friends and followers. Snap a photo of your book cover, then share a short synopsis of the book and why you like it. Use the right hashtags so that other bookworms will see what you’re reading.
- A scene from nature
Not everyone is close to the coast, but that doesn’t mean there is a lack of scenic summer photos to capture. Whether it’s a park, local lake, mountain range, or flower bed, there’s plenty of natural beauty all around you in the summertime. A photo of one of these landscapes adds vibrant imagery to your feed. With outdoor photos, the right lighting is key to taking your photo to the next level.
