Favorite apps: Phonto for watermarking. “It’s very easy to ruin a picture with watermarking. You never want the watermark to overpower the picture, however, you want to make sure it’s noticeable. With Phonto, you can move the watermark in different directions, adjust sizing or create 3-D effects.”

 

Tip to get the best results on a post: “Lighting, understanding the strength of the model’s angles, clean wardrobe, light backgrounds, precise imaging. Tell a story. Include a summary of the work that was done on the picture, and include hashtags.”
