HOW TO MAKE YOUR INSTAGRAM FEED MORE STREAMLINED โญ๏ธ 1) Choose a theme (think about the type of photos you will take and what editing style will look best) 2) Maintain a similar composition within your photos (minimalistic/colourful? What time do you shoot your photos?) 3) Plan ahead! (Look at what colours go together, or maybe you want to transition from one colour to another like @ofleatherandlace) :: I go into more detail and share my top tips in my new blog post! (link in bio) :: Do you have any tips to share on making your profile look more coordinated? :: EDITING TIP - If I shoot a reflection I like to use the brush tool on the reflection and increase the clarity and contrast a bit ๐Ÿ‘Œ :: #seeaustralia#exploretnq#queensland#thisisqueensland#mossmangorge#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#passionpassport#awesomelifestyle

As a direct descendant of Ariel I am able to hold my breath for longer than most humans #truestory ๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ :: If you are looking to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsundays then I recommend spending a day at Hardy Reef with @cruisewhitsundays. They have a pontoon that is right next to the reef wall and you can actually see the patterns of the reef from above the water! You can choose to scuba dive (even if you've never done it before), but as the reef is quite high it is easy to enjoy with a snorkel! :: :: Where is the coolest place that you've snorkelled?! ๐Ÿ  :: Edited on @lightroom for desktop with my Smooth Blues 5 Preset #gingerpresets :: PHOTOGRAPHY/EDITING TIP - If you want to capture the colour of the reef you need to be near the coral (if youโ€™re too far away it will look blue). You can save some of the colour that you lose by using the brush tool and increasing the temperature a bit ๐Ÿ‘Œ :: *PR/press trip #seeaustralia#cruisewhitsundays#exploretnq#whitsundays#queensland#greatbarrierreef#thisisqueensland#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#passionpassport#awesomelifestyle

Where is the best place to party on Halloween? The gRAVE yard! ๐Ÿ‘ป :: :: Although I havenโ€™t done it as much in recent years, I LOVE dressing up! At uni I used to dress up at least 3 times a week! Iโ€™ve shared a few of my favourite fancy dress moments over the years in my stories (including one photo from when I was 16 ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) :: :: Whatโ€™s the most random thing youโ€™ve ever dressed up as? :: :: PHOTOGRAPHY TIP - If you live in a city I encourage you to go shoot it lit up at night! Bring a tripod with you and try out some long exposure shots โ€“ if you want to be in the shot you just need to be REALLY still, something I find very hard as I have โ€˜ants in my pantsโ€™ as my Nana used to say! I tend to keep the ISO as low as possible (100), the aperture around f/5 (unless I want to focus on something in the foreground then I would go to f/2.8) and then the shutter speed at whatever is needed for the optimum light. A low shutter speed = longer time to take the photo = more light let in. I always put on a 2 second timer too so that me touching the camera to take the photo doesnโ€™t move it and ruin the photo. ๐Ÿ“ท

I have just released a new blog post with a step to step guide to setting up and flying your drone (including tips like how to turn it on - as they donโ€™t cover this in the DJI mavic handbook ๐Ÿคฃ) link in bio! :: :: TRAVEL TIP - to get to this viewpoint you need to park at Tully Gorge Lookout, walk to the end of the river walk (signposted) and then take the path to the left down to the river. You then need to cross the river and youโ€™ll be on the rock platform overlooking this epic view! :: :: Edited on @lightroom for desktop with my Golden Glow POP preset! #gingerpresets :: :: #queensland#seeaustralia#thisisqueensland#exploretnq#tullygorgenationalpark#athertontablelands#iamtb#speechlessplaces#naturegramy
