People that have a ton of followers on social media will tell you this–the key to getting a lot of reactions to an image is to make it immediately striking.
If your photo doesn’t make an impact straight away the viewer will carry on to the next one in his/her feed. A quality image post will have immediate “pop” and stop them in their tracks.
Learning some basic compositional techniques, such as the square frame, can make all the difference.
Don’t take social media lightly. Having a lot of followers, likes and comments has afforded many “instafamous” people new opportunities. Offers of work/opportunities to make money. It’s funny how social media can change your life so much.
