Feed idea #3. Rows

Another fun Instagram feed idea for photographers is to post one photo shoot per row . Or one event per row. This way, each row represents a different story.

For example, if you are a wedding photographer, you can post about one wedding per row.

Feed idea #6. Rainbow theme

Ok, this is one of my FAVORITE feed ideas.

It makes me want to scroll, and scroll, and scroll through your feed because it is SO satisfying!

If you have a lot of photos saved up, and you can organize them by color, why not try a Rainbow Instagram Feed ?

Feed idea #8. Reels

I had to show a feed idea that includes Reels . Because let’s be honest, Reels are all the rage on Instagram.

So if you feel like sharing some Reels, try this out!

You could post Reels in the middle Column, or create a Tile effect:

Feed idea #9. Carousel trick

Want a unique feed?

Create a black and white feed.

But with a trick!

Each post is a carousel.

The first photo in the carousel is the black and white photo.

The second is the same photo, but with colors.

This idea can truly make your feed stand out from the crowd, and make people stay longer on your posts.

Feed idea #10. Pops of personal

And lastly, a lot of photographers share photos from their photoshoots and wonderful clients.

Which leaves us scrolling to see… you! The person who we need to trust the most for our big photoshoot day.

So why not share your face more often too?

For example, you could say hello every second row, like this:
