For photos: if you’re taking them ‘fresh’ do it from within Instagram as then you’ll have a square viewfinder to start from.

As for hashtags, look at hashtags your followers (and people that you follow) use and consider using the same: #onetwelfthscale #modernminiature for example. Then you can create your own to ‘hold’ all images of one project together (#baxterpointevilla #baslowranch #walnutbaylight #otterinesminiatures for instance).

It is seen as bad form to ‘front load’ your post with tags. So it’s fine to say ‘My #onetwelfthscale #modernminiature #lighthouse’, for instance, but if you want to mention lots of other hashtags, put them in a comment.

There is also tagging of people. So if, for instance, the scene has been published in a magazine, you might like to tag them, if something in a scene came from someone: tag that person. (A tag has an @ in front of it. You, for instance are @otterinesminiatures) Note: this can be added later by editing your post, which gives you time to search for the correct tag on insta and not accidentally tag the wrong person.

The other thing you need to think about, but probably later, if reposting images from other streams without causing copyright concerns. Let me know if I can help you with this :-)

Oh boy, you’ve opened up a pandora’s box there. :D
I’m now feeling really old as I’m yet to figure it out. (I have an old phone too) I don’t know why you can’t just use it from your computer.. or can you? Hmmm… off to check.. &#59;)

Love this! I just voted.. But had I known this competition was going on I might have been tempted to get out my hellacious murder tree, complete with chalk out line and “for sale” sign through the heart. Hehehe.

Hashtags are easy - literally just put # in front of any combination you want to include. #hashtagslikewhoa #thisishowyoudoit

You can invent your own without issue, or Instagram will come up with others that match what you’ve typed in so far.

And you don’t need to use a square photo - the app will give you the chance to adjust and re-size any photo :)

Oooh, Elizabeth is right, he does not seem thrilled to be part of this tableau.

They all look wonderful though!

Love your kitty wearing the bat wings, although by the annoyed look on his face, he doesn’t appear to be too happy about it.
Good Luck with the contest, Brae :D

I may slow down a bit on a project here and there, but it’s usually from being busy with other things. :yes:

Do you ever find yourself just getting weary of a project?? Or does your enthusiasm always run high?

I really like the effect of the wall outlets on the walls and the illuminated light fixtures, which add mood and ambience within the room.
