Instagram Workshop by Raby Bay
Sun, December 10, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM AEST
On the second Sunday of every month, where there are participants, we will be doing Instagram workshops down at Raby Bay Harbourside, also known as Raby Bay Marina. There is no cost associated with this workshop and you will have at least three photos on Instagram by the end of the workshop - guaranteed.
The workshop goes for up to 3 hours but you don't need to stay that long if you can't.
You will need a smartphone or iPad that has Instagram installed OR you are able to install it.
Don't have Instagram installed? We can help you. You will need to have the username and password ready for Apple Store or Google Play in order to download Instagram and the other free apps discussed during the workshop.
ADDING A PHOTO
There are several ways you can add a photo to Instagram. The most popular way is to open Instagram and take the photo within the app and then edit the photo by editing the settings or adding a filter (optional). Next you add a caption which should contain hashtags relevant to your post. I honestly feel that the best method is to take a photo using your phone. If you are new to smartphone photography it may be best that you use an APP that encourages you to take a photo when your hand is steady and will only take the photo when the taking of the photo will lead to the best result.
We will teach you about #hashtags and what times of the day will get you the most likes and follows.
We cover some of the most popular free apps you can use to edit your photos and add writing and graphics to
your Instagram posts. Once you have taken your photo with the phone's camera or an app that encourages
you to keep your hand still for taking the photo, you can then open the image in an app to add value
(touching up skin, adding text, adding clip art or layers. You will be presented with a handout with a list of
the APPS covered and what they do.
If you have a business and want to promote some products, bring them along to photograph (up to 3 items)
and ideally something to use as a background - unless the backdrop of grass or raby bay marina is suitable.
In the past workshops attendees have used hessian, white or coloured cardboard, fabric or ingredients to
enhance ther photo
We show you how to share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Swarm. Facebook and Twitter most important.
You'll soon be the one teaching all your friends what you know and Instagramming up a storm.
