Everyone knows what the real holiday struggle is, right? Yep, you guessed it. Keeping your Instagram updated and interesting. The most difficult task when it comes to a social media presence is coming up with unique ideas on a consistent basis. So, I’m here to help you with a couple of simple, fun ideas to share your holiday memories and spice up your Instagram. For this post, I partnered with Target and Samsung to try out the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The first thing I look for when I’m in the market for a cell phone is the camera quality and functions. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has more than a lot to offer. You can capture holiday memories with 4k video, use the simple quick zoom button to focus in on those pretty holiday decorations, take stunning portraits with the Live Focus mode, adjust the background blur (a photographer’s dream phone camera function), and more.
Look at the clarity of the focus! You have so much more control with how you want the aperture to be and how much blur you want to the background or foreground of your photo. Most of these photos were taken in extremely dim lighting (thanks Washington) and they still turned out way beyond what I expected.
I love that when I’m going through the process of a photoshoot with this phone, I can easily switch from a wide angle mode, to zoom, to portrait with literally just a tap of a button. It’s easy to use and the quality compares with photos that I’ve taken on my DSLR.
And the best part? For a limited time only, receive a $300 Target GiftCard™ with Purchase and Activation of the Samsung Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8, or Galaxy S8+ in-store at Target! Valid 11/19/17-11/27/17 and 12/3/17-12/9/17 only. That makes this the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for the photographer, social media influencer, selfie obsessed, or tech junkie in your life. So, basically a great gift for anyone. I know I wouldn’t complain about getting one of these phones in my stocking this year. Speaking of stockings, anyone like the new stocking I picked out for myself? When I went into Target to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 I had a little wander through the Holiday Section and left with a lot more than just a new phone. As you do.
BONUS! You can even enter to win your very own Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Prize Pack as well as many other prizes. Enter using the widget at the bottom of this post and GOOD LUCK because you all deserve this little slice of heaven.
It doesn’t take much to produce some eye catching Instagram photos. Really you just need some holiday decorations and maybe some fairy lights and you’re set. The features of this phone really make taking clear, crisp, quality images beyond simple. Can’t wait to start experimenting with portrait shots!
What are your go to photoshoot ideas during the holidays? Personally, I sometimes struggle to stay inspired so it’s great to hear and see other people’s ideas and inspiration. What do you think?
