We love our friends. All of us have that one best friend that we love spending time with. Or you might have a couple of best friends. In any case, you want the world to know you are best friends. And today, the place to celebrate friendship is Instagram and other social media. Today, we will talk about some of the best friend captions you can use.

These friendship captions match your perfect friend on social media. Let’s take a look.

How To Take A Great Photo

Before we get to the best friend captions, let’s talk about how to take good Instagram photos. You need a photo to write captions for, right?

Learning how to take good photos on your phone is all about understanding some basic principles. Let’s see.

Step 1 – Use Natural Light

Lighting is the key to any good photo. Avoid using flash and always use natural light. Flash might bleach your photos. Natural light creates photos that are richer and brighter.

If you are not outdoors, always take photos near windows or in well-lit rooms. Even at night, it is better to find sources of ambient light than to use flash.

Step 2 – Do not overexpose the image

You cannot fix a photo that has been overexposed. You can always brighten a dark photo using editing tools, but you cannot fix an overexposed photo.

Adjust the lighting on your screen to prevent overexposure. Tap and slide your finger up or down to adjust exposure.

You can also tap on the brightest part of the frame to adjust the lighting before snapping the photo.

Step 3 – Finding the right time

Photographers love golden hour. It is the time of the day when the sun is low on the horizon, making the photo more beautiful. Think of it as a natural Instagram filter.

Try not to take photos when there is no direct sunlight. That can look harsh on photos. Clouds help you diffuse the light from the sun and result in a softer and more flattering effect.

Step 4 – The rule of thirds

It is one of the most famous composition principles. It basically refers to a simple method of balancing your image. You divide an image into a 3 x 3 grid and align the subject or object in a photo along the grid lines.

The good news is newer phone cameras have gridlines in settings. Use them to practice aligning your photo. You can achieve balanced asymmetry when the object is off-center but balanced out by another object. You do not always have to be in the center of the photo.

Step 5 – Get Creative

Do not use popular and repeat images. Do not get caught in Instagram photo trends. Always stick with your creativity. The trick here is to stand out from other brands and other Instagram profile users, right? Challenge yourself to find a fresh angle that hasn’t been used.
