TIP 1: DON’T UNDERTHINK LIGHT

Interesting light makes for interesting pictures. And Instagram is great for highlighting images with beautiful light. Learn to recognise gorgeous light and begin the hunt for light patterns and shadows. Then be patient and wait for something interesting to happen. Break the rules and don't be afraid to shoot directly into the light.
