This course was great! I quickly realized that so many of my images for my own Instagram account use the same formula over and over. Each formula seems straight-forward and easy to accomplish. I'm really excited to try out some of the new configurations and to be more purposeful with my photos. I'm printing out the resources and will challenge myself to diversify the types of pictures I'm taking. Also, I am looking forward to checking out the editing apps you recommend in the presentation.

I am, frankly, scared of Instagram. In my business, I don't sell a product--I offer a service. Translating that into a visual medium felt impossible to me. While this class was geared toward styling photos, I got so much more out of it. I found ideas and inspiration. Something clicked and I have a new understanding of how to create a visual representation of my brand. And I learned some cool tips to make photos look professional and slick. I highly recommend this class!

I'm an Instagram novice who's always looking at other people's pretty feeds and wondering how it's done. Taking this course has helped to shed light on the strategies popular Instagrammers use to create beautiful photos. Mandy breaks down social media styling in a way that is easy to understand, using plenty of examples from well-known Instagrammers' feeds. Her course helps you to understand the patterns behind beautiful social media photos, enabling you to utilize those same patterns in your own pictures. Her steps are actionable and easy for anyone to understand and follow, even if you do not have a background in photography. I 100% recommend this course for anyone looking to beautify their Instagram feed! I can't wait to put Mandy's strategies into action for my own photos!

This course was really helpful when it comes to photographs for Instagram. Her descriptions and examples were easy to follow, and really helped explain the concepts. The lessons (and course!) were short, enjoyable, and valuable. The concepts were mostly things I had heard before, but she did a great job of explaining them, and taking the mystery out of them -- making it easier to apply them to your own niche.
