[quote align=”” name=”Jessica Doll”]I like the idea to create interest and tell a story with a single photo. As cliche as it might sound, it’s magical to me that I am able to freeze a moment in time.[/quote]

What do you love about Instagram?

I love, love, love all of the like-minded people I’m able to connect with via Instagram. I’m always in awe of the inspiration and community that is created there by so many creative and talented people.


What are some of the key elements that make an image ‘Grammable?

Always proper lighting and composition. I look for evenly-lit areas that offer an uncluttered and clean look. I follow most basic photography rules, but most of the time just go by what is more visually pleasing to the eye.

What’s your favourite Latergramme feature?

This might sound obvious, but scheduling. I’m constantly on the go and my mind is racing. If I don’t have a post scheduled, I will likely forget to post that day.
