Initially, I meant to put together a post outlining ten desktop editing options. This would have been a logical follow-up to my post on ten mobile photo editing apps. I trawled the App Store every other week for new apps, considered recommendations from photographers and read posts from bloggers across various niches.
Backgrounds can make or break a photo. When framing photos, it’s easy to get stuck on the items intentionally included — books and other props in the case of bookstagram. Is the book cover visible? Does the mug fit the theme? Which vase to use? These details matter, of course, but the background is what ties everything together. That’s why this edition of Bookstagram 101 rounds up seven backgrounds to add variety to your Instagram feed.
Inspiration is sometimes hard to come by, especially when the subject matter constantly is books. My personal worry is that with time my photos will start to look the same. There are only so many ways to turn a book. Book stacks are popular but there’s not much to them beyond y’know, stacking books.
