Hey there! Myself Zaneena Nabeel, an architect by profession and an artist by everything. I'm originally from India, currently based in Dubai. I experiments and enjoys all sorts of medium. For me art is a therapy and I find immense happiness playing with colours.

Since early childhood I loved to draw and paint. when I joined for my architecture studies I totally gave up on art as I got so busy with my studies, but the love for art was growing deep inside me. Once I graduated and moved to Dubai I started investing little of time on art. I started visiting art events and talks and realized the endless world of colours waiting for me. Within no time I took my tools and came back in action and started an Instagram page and here I'm :) 

Now I conduct local/... See full profile

1. Welcome : It's just been a year since Instagram released their new feature called reels, as they are short, quick, fun, and entertaining. Reels have become one of the most favorite feature on Instagram in a very less time. They're not just fun to watch, if you know how to bring in that fun factor in your reels, you will enjoy creating them too. Hello everyone, my name is [inaudible], I'm a model, an artist, and an art educator, I love watching reels and I love creating them too. Whenever I'm facing an art block or whenever I don't know what to create next, I just take out an old painting and turn that into reels. Entertaining and catchy reels with help in your engagement as well and this will automatically boost your Instagram account. So today I'm going to teach you how to create too fun and entertaining reels, which you can create right away with any of your finished paintings. The best part is you don't need any additional applications to create these reels. We're going to use our phone camera and we're going to create them in the Instagram reels feature. I will also be talking about some tips and tricks which can make your reels reach to a wider audience. If you're someone who love watching reels, just like me, I think you should give it a try in making them too. Trust me, it is as fun as watching them. Let the process do the talking, I'll see you in the first lesson. 2. Class Projects: Thank you so much for joining. I'm so thrilled to have you here. Before we get into the process, let me show you the two reels we are creating today.[MUSIC] Both of them are short, fun, and entertaining. For both reels, I'm using gouache paintings. You can use acrylic painting or watercolor painting or any other paintings. Your primary focus should be on the technique and the way I'm using the tools. You can incorporate those techniques in your reels however you want to. It doesn't need to be like the reels I'm creating here. It can be really out of the box. You can bring in some new ideas and create something which is absolutely unique. Just focus on the techniques I'm sharing here and just focus on the process. The rest is all in your hands. You can create your own magic. 3. Equipments & Applications: We had a look at the Reels we are creating today. Now let's have a look at the equipment and applications you will need. Firstly, you will need a phone. I'm using my iPhone 12 Pro Max. These days, almost all the smartphones comes with a good quality camera. With your phone you have got will look perfect. That is the first and the most important thing you will need, which is quite obvious. Next, you will need a phone holder, where you will be fixing your phone onto so that it will stay in the same place without any movement. For both the Reels we are trying to reel, to get the best result you will have to keep your phone in a idle position, it shouldn't be moving. It is best to use a phone holder so that the position is fixed and it wouldn't move from the ocean position from start to end. Now as we are creating the Reels, you will need some paint tubes, you're painting, some paper, brushes, and all those things. I'll be talking about those things in the coming sections. For now, these are the two main equipments you will need, a phone and a phone holder. Now we're not using any additional applications to create the Reels, we're going to directly create them in the Instagram Reels option. The only application you'll need is your Instagram, which is quite obvious. That is it. You will need your phone with an Instagram application in it and then you will need a phone holder that you can fix your phone onto. Everything is set, now let's right away start with our first Reels. 4. Recording Setup: My drawing table is white. It has a white table top. Sometimes I use the white table as it is and paint on a white background and sometimes I use to lay a piece of wallpaper or any other decorative sheet to get a different look for my painting. What you see here as a piece of wallpaper, this looks like an unfinished concrete and I really love the roll look comfort. This is what I'm using for my background. You can use any kind of background that you prefer, it could be a plain, solid color or it can be some other wall people or some textured background. Now for both reels we're trying today, we don't need any fancy camera setup. We just need a top view. I'm adjusting my phone holder and making a trait, until we finish the entire filming process, your camera has to stay in the same angle. Even if you're taking any breaks in between, make sure not to touch the camera and the holders. This one important thing that you need to keep in mind, your camera should stay in the same place from the start to end. Now I'm going to place my phone on the holder. I'm already inside the video mode and I'm going to place my phone in a portrait manner. This is it? This is the camera setup. This is how you should be keeping your phone until you finish the entire filming process. Even a small movement can make a lot of difference so make sure not to touch your phone and the phone holder. Just make sure your phone has enough memory space and enough battery, so that it can survive until we finish the entire painting. That is the camera setup. Now in the next section, I'm going to show you how to prepare your scene. 5. REELS 1 : The Idea + Filming: I have my phone camera set here. Before we step into the process, let's have a look at the reels we are creating today. That is the first reel we're trying to do. It's a quick one which is just under three seconds. To create these reels, we're using the stop-motion technique. I'm not really sure whether all of you are familiar with the stop-motion technique. You already saw the reels we're creating today. Even though this one looks like a video, it is created by a series of images. Stop motion is an animated-filming technique where you physically manipulate the spacing between the objects and capture every frame. You will need to create a series of images and you'll have to put them together to create a video. For the stop motion animation you're seeing right now, it would require at least 200 images to create this entire animation. Your animation would look smooth only if you have multiple number of images. You'll have to capture every minute movement to create a smooth-flowing animation. If it's a lengthy admission, obviously you will need lots of images. But the smaller one, like the one we're doing today, we'll just need less than 20 images. Let's get into the process so you'll be able to understand it better. As I said, we'll be clicking a series of images. As you're creating reels, the aspect ratio of your photo has to be in 16:9. You will find this in your camera settings. [inaudible] 16:9. As we are using a phone in a portrait manner, it will be 9:16, which is the same size of your reels for Instagram stories. The first step is to change the aspect ratio of your photo into 16:9, which is your screen size. Now let's prepare the scene. What we're creating today is an auto reel or a transition reel. Which mean that you should have your finished painting as well as a blank paper. I have done some gouache paintings on wooden coasters, and that is what I'm using for this reels. There I have my paintings and I have some gouache tubes. To get started, you should have a finished painting. It can be watercolor painting, acrylic painting or gouache painting, or any other medium, then you should have a blank piece of paper or a blank canvas, anything that is of the same size of your painting. Then you would need some paint tubes depending on the medium you have chosen for your reels. I have everything ready here. The painting, a blank coaster, then some paint tubes. Now, I'm going to slowly bring this into the frame. You can see my frame is empty. You can just see the background. Now, I'm going to slowly bring all the elements into the screen. Depending on the size of your painting, set your camera. If you want a more closer look, you can bring your camera down. Just keep in mind until we finish the entire filming process, you won't be touching the camera. Just keep your painting and see whether it is completely fitting into the screen. As you could see here on my camera's screen, I'm showing a bit of the coaster set, then my paint tubes. You can see my frame here. This is how I have arranged everything. The painting I've chosen is quite small, so everything will easily fit in this frame. Depending on the size of the painting you have chosen, you may have to set your camera. If it's a bigger painting, you will have to lift your camera a little more up so that everything will properly fit into the screen. As I said at the beginning, for these reels, we'll be capturing a series of images, and we'll be creating the reels directly on our Instagram reels feature. We won't be using any other apps. We have the recording setup already here. Let's right away start with the process. What we're trying to do in these reels is one of the coaster will slowly come into the frame by itself. We won't be showing our hand. It will slowly come down and it will sit on a place. Then one or two gouache tubes will come from the box. They'll also be coming by themselves, we won't be showing our hand. That's the beauty of this stop motion animation. Then a brush will come into the scene. Once the brush touches the coaster, it will turn into the painting. That's the idea. Let's give it a try. Are you guys ready? It's really easy. First, set your camera angle, and bring all the elements that you want in your reels. That is your first step. Once you have your camera set, we again start clicking the images. The first image is going to be what you see on the screen. Let's click our first image. That's the first one. You can't see the image here. Now, I'm going to pull out that coaster. I'll click my second image. Now I'm going to bring it down again. Make sure you're not moving anything else in the frame. Everything else in your frame has to stay in the same position. Only the coaster should move. That's the fourth click. The coaster has come down from that set and it has reached its position. Here is the collage of the images have clicked so far. You can see I have five images here. On the first image, the coaster is in its box, and the second one, the coaster slowly starting to come out. Then it came out completely in the third picture. On the fourth one, it is sitting flat on the background. On the fifth one, it has reached its position. As I'm using a coaster here, I thought it would be nice to make it come out of the box. If you're using a watercolor paper, I just create five different movements. It doesn't really need to be coming out of a watercolor pad or a sketchbook or a box, you can simply create five different movements. Start from any of the corner and manipulate the movement a little by little and create five different images. Here's an example. On the first image, I don't have any paper. On the second one, the paper slowly entering the frame, then it is coming towards the center. On the fifth image, you can see it has reached its position. This is one way you can try if you're using a paper or you can go out of the box and try out something very interesting. Maybe a paper can tear into four pieces and three pieces can go away and just one piece can come towards the center. There are different ways on how you can try this stop motion animation. There is a lot to explore if you're interested in stop motion animation. As this is our first try, maybe we can keep it simple. Let's get back to clicking images. Everything is in the same position. I haven't touched my camera or the phone holder. It is exactly the same position as I click the last image. Now we're going to slowly bring the color tubes into the scene, behind the box resting nicely. I could have actually added a piece of double-sided tape underneath this paintbox so that it doesn't move. Never mind. I will carefully pick one color tube, and I will slowly take that out. I'm going to keep it here for my first image. That's our first image. Now I'm going to bring it a bit more down. It's not still, so I'll just keep it down. That's my second image. Now let's bring in one more color tube, which can be a dark blue because that is the color I have on my painting. Let me try to make it stay this way. I'll click the next image. Now I'm going to bring it down. That's not still, I think I moved my color box a bit. Never mind. I'm not going to do it again. This is why I said I should have added a piece of masking tape at the bottom. I'll click my next image. Now I'll bring it a bit more down, clicking my next image. The paint tubes are in. I'll just show you the images. Here are the images I clicked. On the first one, you can see the light blue color is coming out. On the second one, it has reached the background. On the third one, the darker blue is coming out. On the fourth image, you can see the blue paint tube on the frame. In the fifth image, I slightly move the tube so that it is completely seen in the frame. Those are the five images I clicked. For the paint tubes as well, I made it look like they're coming from the box. You can bring them to the screen however you want to. The easiest way is to bring two or three watercolor tubes from one corner, just like how we did the watercolor paper. Capture three or four different movements and bring them to the frame in a way all of those tubes are clearly visible. On my screen, I have the paint tubes and a blank coaster. Now I'm going to bring in that brush. For the first image, I'll simply keep the brush on the bottom corner, and I'll click one image like this. I think I'll keep it here. I'm going to click, so that's the first image. Now I'm going to place it on the coaster and I will click the second image. Finally, I'm going to bring in the painting, and I'm going to place that on top of the empty coaster. Just make sure you're placing your painting exactly on that coaster or a blank people. Now, I'm placing my brush in the same way, and I clicked on image. Now I'm keeping it down and I'm clicking another image, which is the last image. Here is the collage of the last images I clicked. On the first one, you can see the paint tubes are out, and we have the empty coaster there. But on the next one, I introduced the brush. It is on the left corner. For the next image, I place the brush on the coaster. For the next image, I lifted the brush and place the finished painting on top of the empty coaster. While you're doing this step, you will have to be extremely careful that you're not moving that empty paper. Carefully place your finished painting on top of it, align all the full sides, and make sure that white paper is not seen. As you could see here on the fourth image, I place the finished painting on top of the empty coaster, and I again kept the brush in a similar way, how I have kept that on the third image. When you're placing your brush back, try and get a similar arrangement as the previous image. A slight difference is okay, but don't make it entirely different. Don't place it on the other side or on the top. Try and get a similar position. That was the fourth image. For the final one, I kept the brush a little below the painting. You can clearly see the painting, the brush, and the paint tubes. Everything is clearly visible on the screen, and that was the last image. All the images are saved in my gallery. Let's take a look. Here are the images. There are 14 of them. It's going to be a very shot reel. If you want a lengthy reel, you will have to bring more elements into the screen and you will have to click more and more images. I have 14 images here. Now in the next section, I'm going to show you how you can combine these images and turn them into a beautiful reels. 6. REELS 1 : Editing + Exporting: We have to look at the images we have clicked. I hope you all have your images ready. Now, I'm going to open the Instagram application. Here I have my Instagram application, now I'm going to Reels option. Now I'm inside the Reels. If you're new to Instagram Reels this is where you will find your images. Click on that and that will direct you to your phone gallery. Here you will find all the images that you have clicked earlier. Now we'll select one by one, start with the first image you have clicked. It is very important to select the photos in the same order aspect like them. Start with the very first photo you clicked. This was the first image I clicked. As you could see here, my screen was empty. I just had that coastal set and the paint tubes. Hope that is clear. Select the first image I have clicked. Now, on the bottom you will find a timer. The entire length of this timer is five seconds but then five seconds is quite a lot, we need to bring them down into 0.2 or 0.3 seconds. That is what we're using for these Reels. I'm bringing that timer back and I'm going to keep it at maybe 0.2 or a bit less than 0.2. I just check the speed. I think 0.15 to 0.18 looks fine. I'm going to keep the set 0.16 and I'll add that. You will see fixing add on the top right corner. Once you have set the length of your image, simply click on that add icon. We have added the first image, now I'm going back to that gallery icon on the left corner and I'm going to select the second image that we have clicked. This is the second image where the coastal are slowly starting to come out. Now I'm adjusting the duration. I have added that image, now going with the third one, doing the same. Just keep in mind your timer has to be in the same range. A slight difference is okay but it shouldn't be like 0.1 and 0.2. You can keep it at 0.15 to 0.2 seconds, that is a good range. This image I'm keeping it at 0.17. It isn't that easy to pick the exact same duration. Like if you want to choose 0.15 for all of them with this timer, it isn't that easy and that is the reason why I'm choosing slightly different numbers for each of the frame. Don't worry about those minor difference, that is okay. But make sure you don't have a huge difference like 0.2 and 0.4, that is a huge difference. This minor differences are fine. Now let's have a preview of what we have done so far so you will get an understanding how this top motion Reel is going to be. I'm going to click on this preview icon here. You can see how that coastal was starting to jump from the box and coming down onto the background. With just three images we managed to create this animation. If you're adding more images your animation will be more smarter. Depending on the length of the animation you want you can add in more images. Now I'm going to go with the next image which is this one here that goes to has three streets position and I'm going to set their duration, it's going to be at 0.16 then adding the image. We have added four images. Now I'm going to go with the fifth one where the paint tube is coming out which is this one here. Now again, I'm setting the duration 0.18, adding the image. Now, going back to the gallery, choosing the next one where the paint to pass completely come out. Let me quickly add all the images we have clicked. There are 14 meters. Depending on the scene you how prepared you might be having 20, or 23, or 18, or some other number of images, so the process is the same. You will have to select one by one. Start with the very first image you clicked and go in the reverse order. Don't mess up the order, be really careful while you're choosing your images, you should be starting with the first image you clicked and we should be ending with the last image we clicked. Now I'm almost there, added that image 0.17. Now I'm going to go with the last one. This is where our plan Course 2 has changed into the painting. I think we have one more image. We have one more there. Let me change the duration. That is at 0.16. I have added all the 14 images that I have clicked, now let's do a preview. Click on the preview button. This is how our Reels have turned out. I think the ending is a bit too fast. Maybe we can adjust the duration of the last clip where we're seeing that enter your image. To edit your Reels, click on this arrow icon here and go to the last image we have added, click on the image and you can see this shape here. Click on that and adjust the duration. I kept the last image at 0.38 but it's a bit less than 0.4. Now, on the topmost corner you will see I can call trump, click on that. The image just turned and add it to the Reels, and here's the preview. You can see it is looking much better. The ending is a lot more smarter. You can clearly see the finished painting. Now, I'm going to save a copy. You can see this icon here, click on that and save a copy. This one will be saved into your gallery. You can either save it as a draft or you can save a copy into your gallery. Now we're going to select the audio. I have done similar Reels earlier so I'm going to use the same audio. It is here, so this is the audio that I'm going to use. If you want to try searching for new audio, there's a music icon here on the top. You can click on that and it will direct you to the Instagram Reels music library and you can choose the one which you like. When you click on that music icon, you will see lots and lots of music options. Pick one which goes with your Reels. If you're Reels is quite fast you need to go with the fast music and if your Reels are quiet slow go with the nice, a beautiful one are a piano music. This is how you add music onto your Reels. Now, I'm going to go back to my audio and I'm going to choose the Reels, and here is it. Here's the Reels I created, it's just 2.8 seconds. Now it's time to share the magic we have created with your audience, you can see that add icon on the top. Click on that you can have a preview. If you want to add something to those you can do that. Add a catchy caption, add some hashtags, and share your beautiful creations to the world. 7. More Ideas!: I hope you all got a quick idea about the stop motion animation technique and you all enjoyed creating your reel. As I said at the beginning, if you're trying out the same reels using a watercolor paper, you will have to have your painting and a blank paper which is of the same size as your watercolor painting. I'll just show a quick demo of how you can do the same reels using a watercolor painting. I have a blank piece of paper and a painting cure. Both of them are of the same size. Then I have my watercolor box here, you can make it look like the color tubes are coming out of the box and they're coming onto the space. Just like how I introduced a blank coastal first, you can introduce your blank paper. I had a blank coastal and a painting which is of the same size. I first brought in the blank coastal, in a similar way you can bring your blank paper. Then on top of that you can place your finished painting. These two sheets has to be of the same size, that is really important. I have made a quick reels using this watercolor painting and these watercolor tubes, let me show you that. That's another way how you can create reels. Onto the frame, first I introduced the watercolor box, I kept moving it slowly and I clicked every frame. Then I opened the box, I clicked again, and then I pulled out two watercolor tubes from the box and I clicked every movement, you can see the way I'm clicking all the images here. To make your animation interesting you will have to click every minute movement, otherwise, that flow won't be that smooth, it will look like a jump from burned potato. Now, I'm going to close typing box and I'm going to again click some images and I'm going to place that at one corner. Now I'm introducing the paper, I'm clicking every movement. Now that's on the place, now I'm introducing the brush. I clicked few images, now I'm placing the finished painting on top of the blank paper and I click the last image. Finally, I combined all the images I clicked, I reduced the duration to 0.15 to 0.2 seconds and I turned them into these reels here. That was it, I hope the idea is clear and I hope you guys enjoyed creating this reels. I'm really waiting to see all the beautiful reels you guys will be creating. Now, I'm going to show you a few more ideas where you can incorporate the same technique and create different reels. Here is my Instagram profile and I have created a few reels with the same technique. Let's have a look at this one first. I started off with opening my sketchbook then I kept clicking different images while I was painting. I captured every moment and I combined them together and I created these reels. Now, let's have a look at another one. I have done a couple of reels using the same technique, this is another one using the same technique. For this last one, I started off with opening my sketchbook then I captured every moment and then I combined all those images into a stop motion animation. Using audio which goes well with the video will make it look more interesting. I'll show you one more where I added some colors onto the frame and I kept moving them as well. These are just few options where you can incorporate the same stop motion animation technique and try out different reels. I hope you guys enjoyed creating this first reels. Now let's try to waste time with our second one. 8. REELS 2 : The Idea + Filming: For the second reels as well, you will need one of your finished painting and a blank paper. Now, I'm using a gouache painting for this one as well. This is in a circular shape. I have an empty coastal and a painted coastal here. Now, let's prepare the scene. It is just like the previous one. We just made a top view. I'll just keep this things aside, and I'll bring my camera. Depending on what will you want in your frame, you can adjust your camera. If you're using a bigger painting, you will have to lift your camera a bit more up so that everything will fit in the frame. For this one as well, I'm going to keep two tubes outside. I'll move with just one tube. I'll just go with this green one. Now, I will bring my painting inside the frame just to see how is it looking altogether. This reels we are creating directly on the reels feature. As you could see here, I'm already inside the reels. Then already using our phone camera. We'll be capturing one or two small videos in the Instagram reels feature. We'll be using the camera inside the reels feature to capture these videos. It looks like my frame is ready. I have some empty coastals, then I have my paint box, and there is one tube which I kept outside intentionally. These things are not going to move, they has to stay in the same place. Now, I'm going to bring empty coastal into the frame. Until we finish the end to your filming process, everything has to stay in its original position. Add all the props you want in your frame, and adjust them accordingly. This is how your frame should look like. You can set everything that you want in your scene, then you have to place your empty canvas or coastal or empty paper. We'll capture a video with empty coastal, then we will add the finished painting on top of it, and will again click a video, and we'll make it look like that empty coastal has transitioned into a beautiful painting. Now, to capture a video using your Instagram reels feature, you just need to press on this Reels icon. That's it, that's how you record your video. The first touch will start the video, and the second touch will end the video, just like how we use our normal camera option. After you have captured the video, you can click on the "Preview" and watch the video. That is how we do it. Now, I'm going to go back, and let's start the actual process. The first step is to set your frame with an empty canvas or empty coastal or an empty paper. My frame is ready. Now, I'm going to start the filming process. I'll begin by clicking on this "Reels" icon here, which will start my video. I'm clicking on this icon and I'm releasing it at the same time. I have captured a small video there, which might be like just one or two seconds. That is our first video. Now, for the second one, I'm placing my brush. Start the video, place your brush and end the video. Now, we're going to look at the most interesting feature on Instagram Reels called Align. You can see the one that I have marked here, right underneath that timer. I just took a small video where I placed a brush on my coastal, then I took off the brush. Now, I'm going to click on that "Align" icon. I finished recording that bit. Now, I'm going to click on this "Align" icon, and I'm going to lift off my brush. Again, see the brushes tool there, and this is the magic of this Align feature. I'm still inside the reels feature, and I'm going to place the finished painting on top of the empty coastal. This Align feature works as a reference. It will clearly show you where you should be keeping your second object. I have placed my finished painting. Now, following that brush, I'm placing the brush. Now, I'm clicking the video again. The brush and the painting has aligned properly. Now, I'm going to start the video by clicking on this reels icon. I'm going to lift off the brush and I'm going to end the video. Finally, I'm going to place the brush back in the scene, and I'm going to capture another small video. That's done. Now, let's check the preview. Everything has aligned properly, but the video was a bit lengthy. We need to trim it a bit and reduce the length of the video. The transition is not looking that interesting because the entire video was very slow. We'll have to make it a bit fast to make it look more interesting. Also, we'll have to add an audio which goes well with this transition. That is the next task. 9. REELS 2 : Editing + Exporting: I'm going to save a copy of the video we have created that entire video, which we are reactivated. You can either save a copy and edit that saved video or it can directly trim your clips here. Now it's time to add the audio and trim the clips accordingly. I'm inside my Instagram right now. Now I'm going to go inside my saved audios. Whenever you come across any interesting audio, you can save them just like how you save post. Here is my audio gallery where I have saved all the interesting audios which I came across. Now photos are going to be created right now. I'm going to use the first audio that I have saved, which is this one. Once you have selected your audio, click on Use audio. Now go to this gallery icon here and select the reels we have created. That's the audio I have chosen. To make it go with the audio, we have to make our reels a little more faster, right now it is really slow. Also, I'm planning to crop a bit from the ends. I don't want to show the brush. I think I'll trim it till here that the brush is entering and once the brush touches the poster it is turning into a painting, I'm not going to show the rest. This is looking much better because that ending was quite slow. Now what I'm going to do is, I'm going to adjust the speed so that our reel smoothly a lot more faster. It will go with the audio. Right below the audio, you will find this thing called Speed. We can't change the speed of the reels here. From 1x, I'm going to change that into 2x speed. I think it is looking far better now. Let's change that into 4x and see how it's looking. 4x speed looks too fast. I think we'll have to go back to 2x. Depending on the type of audio you have chosen, if it's a much more faster audio, you can adjust the speed. Maybe you can go with 4x or 8x according to the speed of your audio. Now, I'm going to switch back to 2x. That's a final result. I'm quite happy with the way it has turned out. The audio was going nice with the reels and the speed is also quite nice. Now it's time to share the magic we have created with our buttons. Let's click on Next, and let's add a catchy caption. Maybe we can see three seconds magic. You can add some trending hashtags as well, which may help your reels reach to a wider audience. Now select the cover image. When you're adding a cover image, you can either select a new photograph from your camera roll or you can select any of the frame from your reels and choose that as your cover image. These are two ways how you can add a cover image onto your reels. Now there's one option here. I'm not sure whether you are aware of this. That is this option called crop profile image. If you click on that, you can adjust the way the reals will appear on your profile grid. You can drag it and choose however you want to. If you pinch and zoom, you can also zoom that image. We are all set to share our three seconds magic with the world. Go ahead and share it with your audience. I had tried another reel so using the same audio, let me show you that. That is right here. This one is an indifferent angle. The technique is the same. I'll tell you the trick I use to create these reels, I had already painted the moon or on a canvas. Then I took a piece of black paper, which is of the same size as the canvas, and I kept that on top of the canvas. For the second transition part, I removed that black paper and I aligned the brush. Then I combined those two videos and created this reel. Easy, right? If you are ready to explore, there are so many different ways how we can make use of the align tool and you can create interesting reels. I hope you guys enjoyed creating the second reel classroom, do give it a try. If you're sharing them on Instagram, don't forget to tag me. 10. Final Thoughts: In a short span of time, reels has become one of the most loud feature on Instagram. I enjoy watching reels and I enjoy creating them too. If you're stranding audios and if you carefully make your reels more fun and entertaining, there are chances it can go viral and it can bring a new followers to your account. People have started using reels as a tool to grow on Instagram and there are people who are constantly putting a lot of time and effort in making their reels go viral. According to me, your prime focus shouldn't be that. Focus on the quality and create any reels which you enjoy creating and which people will enjoy watching too. Don't focus on the viral part, if it goes viral, great. But that has to be just secondary. The primary focus should be on you enjoying the process. I hope you guys enjoy creating those quick reels with me. Thanks a lot for joining and happy filming.
