In part 1 I provided 5 tips on making your travel photography on instagram stand out and this week we're looking at the top 3 reasons you are losing instagram followers.

A week ago today I hopped on a train at Clapham Junction and made my way down to beautiful Hampshire with its rolling hills and lush green fields. Together with a handful of vegan bloggers I was lucky enough to be allowed to explore picturesque Leckford Estate. This was all thanks to the generous people behind Waitrose and in honour of their #waitroseatsource campaign. The campaign is about eating local, organic, sustainable and seasonal food.

10 DAY FREE INSTAGRAM SUMMER PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE
I strongly believe that practice makes perfect and photography is no exception; the more you pick up your iphone or camera, the better you'll get. It's why I lovingly designed a FREE instagram on-line photography challenge where you can share your images with like-minded creatives who are there to provide you with inspiration and encouragement.
- You will receive 10 unique photography themes/challenges throughout the month of July directly into your e-mail inbox.
- Each e-mail will contain the title of your challenge, photography/instagram tips, visual mood boards and inspiration sources to really spark your imagination.
- You will have a minimum of 48 hours to interpret the given photography theme. This should allow you enough time to experiment and have a play before taking your final shot.
- I'll always ask for you to showcase your work on your instagram gallery every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
