I just recently started a “Bookstagram.” I never really understood the point of Instagram before – who wants to look at a bunch of artsy pictures of people’s food? Then I found out that there’s a whole community of people who post picture of BOOKS on there, and BOY HOWDY, I reactivated my account in a snap!
I’ve read a lot of great how-to type of posts by Paper Fury, including this one about how to photograph ebooks, that have been so valuable. Her photos are always so beautiful! (And I am so jealous of her very rainbow-iffic bookshelves!) Do you know of any other blogs, how to’s, or tools to help the beginning Bookstagrammer? I’d love to hear about them!
I’m still developing my style and aesthetic. Here are a couple of my first tries at bookstagramming. What do you think? I think I’m slooooowly getting better. The top left photo is of my Kindle Oasis and I used Paper Fury’s how to on photographing ebooks to insert the cover into my photo! 🙂 I read so many egalleys, it’s great to have an option to photograph them!!
What do you think of Instagram? Are you more excited about the Bookstagram side of it? Are there particular accounts you follow that really inspire you?
I’d love if you’d leave a link to your own Bookstagram (if you have one) in the comments so I can check it out! 🙂 Here’s the link to my Insta if you want to check me out, too. 🙂
