About This Class

Instagram stories might just be the hottest thing on the internet, in terms of social media. Originally derived from Snapchat, stories are a quick snapshot of what occurred 24hrs ago, or sooner. While Instagram stories live on in your account, stories invariably disappear after 24 hours. Poof! Gone. 

Stories are design to entertain. People want to see fun stories, infotainment and informative stories. They want to see what is happening right now with a business. Maybe you're running a special. Or having a yearly dinner for a company retreat. Maybe you just want to tell everyone, "The sun is shining, come on down." With Instagram stories you can do all of that and more.

In this tutorial, I'll walk you through the step-by-step process of photographing (you can use a photograph taken within the 24 hours of time window) something and adding text and additional information to it. An easy breakdown of all of the steps are here.

We'll explore:

  • What a boomerang is
  • How to shoot a stop motion
  • What various super-zoom's do
  • How to add time and temperature
  • How to add a poll to create interactivity
  • How to setup an interactive temperature gauge
  • Creating a text-based Instagram story
  • and so much more!
