Long gone are the days when photos were kept private; it’s the age of sharing! And with a total of over 400 million users, Instagram (IG) reigns as the most popular photo-sharing app.

If you love to travel and share your experiences with the world through IG, then use these 10 filters to transform even the most mundane photos into a wow picture!

 

Just using a camera doesn't seem to be enough; Instagramming is what brings out the fun

#1 For European Cities

Recommended Filter: Hudson

Hudson will probably be your best friend on a Europe trip. This effect perfectly filters the images of city streets, limestone buildings and iconic monuments. Hudson basically alters the light in your photo and provides a cool tint that makes your image look icy with a ‘dodged center’. Translation – your image might have been clicked on a warm sunny day, but the effect makes it appear wintry and cold.

#2 For Safari Tours

Recommended Filter: Sierra

This filter adds a cloudy effect to your photo, almost as if you are day dreaming! It softens the background and allows your subjects to take centre stage. When on a safari, use Sierra to make the wild African landscape appear calm and soothing so that your subjects pop (be it lion, elephant or any of Africa’s ‘Big 5’).

#3 For Rainforest

Recommended Filter: Sutro

A perfect blend of richness and Gothicism, Sutro adds a sinister tone to every photo. So much so that it can even make Edward Cullen look scary. It smokes up your image, highlights the shadows and puts emphasis on purples and browns. In short, it makes your image look dramatic. Experiment with this effect on a rain forest capture and break free from the conventional ‘greens’.

#4 For Sunsets & Beaches

Recommended Filter: Toaster

While you’re on a beach or island getaway, capture the beautiful play of colours in the sky and add a dramatic sherbet tint to it with Toaster. This filter burns out the centre of your image and ages it a bit.

#5 For Cruising

Recommended Filter: Brannan

Famous for its sepia like ‘greyish tint’, this filter reduces the glare of the breaking surf and adds a metallic touch to the photograph. Translation, it accentuates deep colors and softens neutrals. Brannan is perfect for photographs with dramatic shadows.

#6 For Portraits

Recommended Filter: Juno

This filter is perfect for photos of people. Juno infuses a green tint to cool tones and makes warm tones pop – a perfect formula for vibrant portraits. A must-use filter, if you ask us!

#7 For Mountains

Recommended Filter: Hefe

Hefe perfectly complements nature and makes your hills, valleys and peaks appear more bold and colourful. This filter works with high contrast and saturation, and is somewhat familiar to the ‘Lo-Fi’ filter. It adds a vibrant layer to photos by enhancing bright colours.

#8 For Antarctica

Recommended Filter: Inkwell

With zero colour saturation, this filter increases contrast naturally. For example, the white wilderness of Antarctica that displays no complex colours can be enhanced beautifully with Inkwell. This black and white filter is certainly a favourite among Instragrammers, just search for #bw and see for yourself!

#9 For Classic moments

Recommended Filter: Reyes

Everyone loves the vintage vibe! Keeping this in mind, Instagram introduced the filter Reyes, which transforms your everyday moments into special captures. There’s nothing like a vintage filter to deliver a classic feel!

#10 For Landscapes  

Recommended Filter: Lark

One of the popular new favourites, the Lark filter is best suited for landscape photographs as it de-saturates the reds, while punching up the blues and greens. Watch your capture transform from a typical landscape shot into a more intense image right in front of your eyes with the lark filter.
