Since joining Instagram 3 years ago, my long suffering fiancé , Kev, has had to endure the pain of trying to take an Instagram photo on my behalf! He is mainly saved because I have the equal attention span (that of a toddler) and so within about 5 minutes both of us end up saying sod it and cracking on with the day. That said, I was on a mission to utilise that 5 minutes to get a shot where I wasn’t either blurred or worse, ‘mid pose prep’ which we all know either brings out all the chins or looks like you’re farting!
Some of his early work
Anyway, fast forward to a few months back and the genius finally had a cracking idea! As I stood explaining (boring him) with the photo I wanted him to take of my outfit, he cut in ‘Just take a picture of me as you and I’ll copy that’.
GUYS, ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER!
The guy who could once only take a shot front on, close up and at best ‘in focus’ suddenly cracked a code that would shape the rest of our Instagram journey together. It was a blissful day.
Don’t get me wrong, he still would rather be drinking beer and watching the footy (in fact I think he’d rather listen to a debate about Brexit) but nevertheless, he’s shown himself to be a real grower! Go forth Instagrammers, share this wisdom and enjoy!
Here’s what the gem captured this month of my Very picks with all links listed at the bottom. All items are under £35 too! (Head to IGTV to see them in more detail).
This post was part of my paid partnership with Very. All items were chosen by me.
