Project Description

Curate 5 photos that match the theme you want your Instagram to focus on. These photos can be yours, or photos that you find online or on Instagram. Focus on keeping these 5 images consistent not only in theme, but in style as well (lighting, editing, colors, etc.)

If you already have a consistent feed, post 5 of your photos that you think embody it the best.

PS: This is a great exercise for those trying to improve their Instagram accounts, and its a great way to get feedback from me and other course members :)
