    12 Types Of Instagram Photos

    An illustrated guide on 12 stylish Instagram trends by artist Joanna Zhou. Selfies and hot dog legs included!

    1. The Workspace

    buzzfeed.com

    This classic Instagram composition involves more apple products than a harvest festival and one artfully placed Starbucks drink.

    2. The Hot Dog Legs

    buzzfeed.com

    A trend so good it has it’s own blog: Hot Dogs or Legs?

    3. The Random Street Shot

    buzzfeed.com

    Inspire your followers with dreamy filters, whimsical characters and some quirky sky phenomenon.

    4. The Butt-Expensive Selfie

    buzzfeed.com

    A carefully planned “casual” selfie prior to an event which required 3 hours of preparation. Peaks around ball or wedding season.

    5. The Food Porn

    buzzfeed.com

    Reap in likes if you can find an elusive bakery which makes a jumbo kawaii macaron ice-cream sparkle sundae.

    6. The Beauty Guru

    buzzfeed.com

    A manicure based on five different scenes from The Great Gatsby? #everybodygotimefodat

    7. The Fitness Humblebrag

    buzzfeed.com

    A casual sporty snapshot (running shoes, marathon number, yoga pose) that makes your followers wallow in self-loathing over their own lack of physical fitness.

    8. The Party

    buzzfeed.com

    Show the world what crazy fun you’re having with a very blurry, dark shot punctuated by laser beams, dancing people and someone in a creepy fur suit.

    9. The Surprise Gift

    buzzfeed.com

    An unexpected gift from your significant other MUST be documented on Instagram immediately! Bonus points if there’s a 3D-printed version of himself inside the bouquet.

    10. The Interior Designer

    buzzfeed.com

    A room without transparent furniture isn’t one that’s worthy of Instagram.

    11. The DIY Diva

    buzzfeed.com

    Get crafty or die trying! Holiday season is perfect for showing off your dexterity with carving knives and paintbrushes.

    12. The Photogenic Pet

    buzzfeed.com

    If you decide to purchase an outrageously cute pet with funny fur markings or head-balancing skills, then get ready to become an Insta-celebrity overnight.
