Bankrate has put together some top tips for getting that perfect Instagram photograph. 

You should use natural light, such as taking a picture in the golden hour (the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset) as it makes every snap sharper. 

Budding photographers could also consider viewpoints and try shooting from above or below to create different angles. 

Another way to capture an interesting picture is to add character - include layers, shapes or even a passer-by or two.
