Tips and Tricks on How to take the best photos for your Cherry Instagram

By Admin


A good social media presence can be key for good business. In our current day, social media is one of the best ways to advertise your brand without paying a ton of money- you just have to know how to do it. So taking good pictures for your Instagram account is paramount in keeping up your number of followers and clients. We are rooting for your success with this franchise, so here are a few good tips and tricks for making sure your Cherry Dry Bar Instagram is flawless and appealing. 

Use Good Lighting

Lighting is incredibly important when you’re taking appealing photos. It can be the key factor in whether your photo will look nice, or lifeless. Don’t take photos in light that is too bright, because it will obstruct details and no one will be able to understand what is happening in the picture. At the same time, you also don’t want your photos to be too dark for similar reasons. Lighting can be used to emphasize certain aspects of photos as well, so you should think about getting lights specifically designed for taking a good picture. This isn’t necessary, but it can help. If you’re lucky enough to have your windows positioned towards the rising/setting sun, you can also count on the golden hour to light up your salon and offer some photos with an appealing soft glow. Golden hour can vary depending on your location, but the majority of the time it can be noticed at twilight, between 6-7 am and 7-8 pm. 

Understanding Filters

Filters are far from necessary, but they can pretty up and add to otherwise more boring photos. Certain filters can add brightness to the picture you took, making for a cleaner and more detailed-looking image. They can also add a nice glow to a picture if you missed golden hour. Just don’t use any that are overly saturated, otherwise, the colors may be strange. 

Optimal Angles

Angles are very important when taking a nice photo. Taking photos at different angles will spice up your feed and keep it interesting. At the same time, getting the right angle is important for making sure that you get a picture worth posting. Don’t be afraid to play around with them to see what works best for your salon’s setup. Don’t be afraid to look at other successful salon’s Instagrams and look at their most popular photos to understand what angles work best either. Keeping things neat, clean, and parallel can be a good starting point. 

Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words! You’ll be competing with a lot of different businesses, so making sure your photos are well done and stand out will help keep attention on you and your business. Use the proper hashtags so people can discover your salon, and post frequently as well to make sure Instagram’s algorithm favors you. All these things will not only help ensure you take good pictures but boost the chances of you growing your platform.
