The Art of a Wall Photo

If you keep up with my social media, mainly my Instagram, you might have noticed that I have an eye for aesthetic. If you don’t keep up with my Instagram, you’re lame and should probably get on that ASAP because you’re missing out on some quality content. Regardless, I’m here to talk to you today about the key to getting the perfect picture of yourself; the wall pic.

The art of Instagram is very simple when you have your best friend to help you out. Your best friend is now a brightly colored wall and that wall will love and cherish you more than any other human ever could. Trust me, I’m a pro.

Now you might be thinking to yourself, “Lena, how could a pile of painted bricks ever replace the love I receive from friends and family?” Well a picture is worth a thousand words, and I’ve been compiling my portfolio for years, so let me just show you instead.

Does your best friend stand behind you to pose as the perfect backdrop? Do they coordinate with your outfit to flatter the right colors? Do they provide you with the perfect support to lean against while faking the photogenic “candid” laughs? If you answered “no” to at least one of these questions, then you need to find some walls, like, yesterday.

Find one to match your outfit. Find one with a fancy mural on it. Find one to express your personality. The possibilities are endless, and the search is half the fun.

So stop sleeping on the best IG shots out there, and start finding some walls to stand in front of. Confused stares from passerbys are appreciated and encouraged. Go fourth and Instagram responsibly.
