Fun with Instagram stories

March 22, 2018

Instagram stories are a fantastic feature. Ever wanted to post something but weren’t quite sure? You can post it on your story where it is only visible for 24 hours, giving you a good insight into the post’s potential.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Stories seem to be where Instagram first rolls out it’s newest features, so you can toy around with type mode, have some fun with focus or try your hand at stop-motion animation. Let’s break it down:


TYPE
Effectively turns your story into a Twitter of sorts. Here you can type whatever is on your mind with nice fonts and lovely gradient backgrounds, no photo required!

LIVE
Here you can stream in-the-moment and save to your story. This is perfect for product launches, events, or when a celebrity happens to pop into your shop or office (Idris, we’re waiting…)

BOOMERANG
Film a spot of movement (the simpler the better) and Boomerang mode reverses it seamlessly, ‘nuff said.

SUPERZOOM
Create a dramatic zoom, with several modes, to place a spotlight on a product detail, reaction face, or adorable animal, obvs.

REWIND
Does what it says on the tin. You know what’s cooler than a video of someone cannonballing into a pool? Someone flying out backwards from a pool and landing on their feet completely dry!

HANDS-FREE
Great for setting up a tripod or when your hands are full of chai lattes and croissants for that morning meeting that you want to feature.

STOP-MOTION
Ideally works best with a tripod, set it up and make inanimate objects come alive before your follower’s eyes, remember, 24 frames to a second for all you purists.

FOCUS
Focus digitally imitates the effects of Portrait mode, and works in a similar way, blurring the background and making all you friends think you’re the next David Bailey.
