Got an amazing photo to share with the world? Want to know how to tag your photos correctly to get the best coverage on Instagram?

Here's a quick 5 minute guide to help you go viral!

Photography Hashtags to use in Kent to increase followers

Step 1 - Make your profile public

Public posts get much better coverage than private ones and opens up your photos to be shown to other users via hashtags.

  1. Tap Settings.

  2. Tap Privacy.

  3. Turn off Private account.

Step 2 - Tag the location of your post

Instagram loves personal posts and you should always tag the location where the photo was taken.

  1. Tap Add Location.

  2. Find your location in the suggestions or search for the location and select it.

  3. Tap Share.

Step 3 - Add an interesting description

Instagram is all about being social so make sure you add lots of interesting information about your photo, including what it is, where it is and why you took it. Add a few questions to your followers so you can invite them to add comments. The more comments you get the further your post will go!

Step 4 - Tag some friends and businesses

Make sure to tag any friends, locations or businesses in your photo using the @ tag. Your photo will then be featured on their account for people to see and will also encourage them to comment on the photo and reshare.

To tag people as you're posting a photo or video:

  1. After you've selected a photo or video and added effects and filters, tap Tag People from the Share screen.

  2. Tap on someone in the photo.

  3. Start entering their name or username and select them from the dropdown menu.

  4. Tap Done (iPhone) or (Android).

To add people to a photo or video you've already shared:

  1. Go to the photo or video.

  2. Tap (iPhone) or(Android) above the photo or video.

  3. Tap Edit.

  4. Tap Tag People, then tap on someone in the photo.

  5. Start entering their name or username and select them from the dropdown menu.

  6. Tap Done > Done (iPhone) or tap then tap (Android).

Step 5 - Use Hashtags!

We all know how great a hashtag can be. On Instagram it means that people that dont already follow you will see your amazing photo!

Instagram will let you post up to 30 hashtags per post but that doesn't mean you should always use all 30 slots! Instagram is very secrative on the exact amount you should use so I always recommend experimenting with different numbers of hashtags. The experts currently thing the best amount is around 11.

Which Hashtags to use?

Always use relevant hashtags and dont always go for ones with the most posts. The more popular the hashtag is the more competition you'll have against other photos so it's good to use local hashtags and a mix of popular and small ones.

Here's a handy list of popular hashtags that we use that are specifically for Kent Photographers that'll get your pics noticed, increase your follower count and get you more engagement:

Area and location based (only use the area where you took the photo)

Kent Photography page hashtags (these will often repost your photos)
