What even is an Instagram theme?
There is no dictionary definition of an Instagram theme. It’s when someone’s Instagram feed flows really well, there may be a colour scheme, particular types of similar shots, similarities in each photo, it’s actually quite hard to explain so I’ve put some great examples below of gorgeous Instagram themes… (click the arrow to scroll through)
I absolutely love scrolling through feeds like these, it gives me so much inspo and makes me want to really improve my photography and editing! Major #GridGoals! A lot of bloggers have a ‘theme’ and a lot of bloggers don’t.
I have tried to create a theme on my feed, but I find it impossible. To make a ‘theme’ flow the images need to all look similar from a distance when you’re looking at it on someone’s page, or have a similar colour scheme etc. My photos are not that similar. When I edit my photos, I use the same filter and edit them in the same way to keep them consistent but I have tried and failed at the #gridgoals Instagram theme thing! Some of my photos are of fashion, some are food and some are just random bits and bobs! I can’t seem to tie all of mine in together.
It was bothering me for a while thinking “is my page not going to attract new people because it doesn’t have a theme” and if it doesn’t then it doesn’t. I want to put pictures on my Instagram because I want to share them with you, not because it fits in to my feed or for any other reason. Then on the reverse, I don’t want to not be able to upload something because it’s not the right colour scheme or it won’t ‘fit in’.
Sometimes naturally a few photos on my feed flow really nicely and then other times they don’t, but I’m giving up worrying about it and just sharing what I want to share!
As beautiful as #GridGoals are, it’s too much upkeep for me so I hope you carry on enjoying my random uploads! 😉
Lots of love
