Homework assignments for this module:

PLAY. Have FUN. Get CREATIVE. 

1. Post those selfies! Don't be shy. If you need support call on your tribe by using the hashtag #theenergeticsofinstagram or #magictribe. 

2. Start editing your photos in alignment with your Energetic Signature. Try this process for 9 photos and see how you feel - notice what happens with your engagement levels.  

3. Post at least 1 photo where you use at least 2 apps to edit it. 

Remember one of the most important things you should always do before you take any pictures!  The golden rule: always remember to clean your lens, or at least check it to make sure it is clean, before you take any photos!  A dirty lens can make the difference between a high-quality beautiful photo that commands attention, and one that is so blurry and pixelated that people wonder what you were thinking.  And don't zoom in while taking a photo!  This will also make the picture super pixelated, so take the photo from farther away and crop the image later.

This image can help you understand the "Rule of 5ths" pattern for creating a rhythm, or a refrain, in your Instagram feed.  There are 4 photos in between the photos you are choosing as your "every 5th photo."  You can also create additional "spins" throughout your feed with other images/videos.  You can see there's another spin happening with the blue diving images (outlined in purple) as well.  Once again, choose whatever images resonate with you, you don't have to do quotes - and you don't have to have an entire flow of interrelatedness between every 5th photo for a duration in your feed, you can also simply add in 1 or 2 "spins" here and there when your feed starts to feel a bit disjointed.  

Homework assignments for this module:

1. Decide whatever it is you are going to use as your "every 5th photo" and give that a good go. Try it out at least 6 times and see what happens on your feed, notice how it feels. 

Questions to contemplate:  What are some fun and creative ways you can gather new photos and images this week?  Can you schedule some time for some mini photoshoots?  How can you integrate this part of the creative process into your life in a way that feels nourishing and inspiring?

When do you notice your audience is most active? 

What are your posting goals per day?  Per week?  

How can you push yourself to edge into sharing a bit more?  How can you make it a game so it's fun for you?

Questions?  Come on over to the Facebook group and ask away!
