100+ Bookstagram Hashtags by Post Type

100+ More bookstagram hashtags by post type -- The riverside Library-3

It's probably no surprise that one of my most popular blog posts to date is 100+ Bookstagram Hashtags. Having posted that one quite some time ago, I've had a while to consider how to improve it, and help you readers out some more with your hashtag game on bookstagram. In this post, I've grouped hashtags by post type (ie. bookshelves, library loans etc), and included some new, specific hashtags for you to use.

A Little Bookstagram Hashtag Tip

One of the best tips I've ever received is to save my hashtags as a keyboard shortcut in my phone. To do this on an iPhone, simply go to settings > general > keyboard >text replacement then paste the hashtags in 'phrase' and create a unique shortcut. Then, when it comes time to posting your Instagram photo, you can simply type in your unique shortcut and your phone will replace that with your hashtags!

Quick things to remember: Instagram will only allow you to use up to 30 hashtags per post. Also, I've tried my best to proof read this (and count), but forgive me if there are spelling errors. It really hurts your head to stare at hashtags for so long!

100+ Bookstagram Hashtags

100+ Bookstagram Hashtags -- The Riverside Library

UPDATED VERSION: 100+ More Bookstagram Hashtags

If you've been playing the Instagram game for a while, you'll know all about the importance of hashtags - hell, even if you're new to Instagram, you'll probably know that hashtags are one of the best ways to get exposure for your account. Instagram is well known for being a little bit sensitive with hashtags though, and there are always rumours flooding the internet that if you use the same hashtag so many times, Instagram will reduce the exposure of your content because they think you're spam, or something like that. I guess that's good? But Instagram, we don't all have a spare couple of hours to trawl the hashtag section to find new ones!

Enter me.

Bedridden this afternoon and bored as an insomniac bat in the middle of the day, I decided to put myself to use, and find a whole long list of Instagram hashtag for bookstagrammers to use.

I've heard that its best to use a mixture of popular and less popular hashtags on your posts, so, not only have I compiled a list of hashtags, I've also found the number of posts each hashtag has. The gigantic table below is organised by popularity, with the most popular at the top and least popular at the bottom. It is in two columns, because a single column was too long for a single page here on my blog, so the second column is a run-on from the first.

Not every one of these hashtags is explicitly bookish related, some were just semi-common ones I had saved in my phone for some particularly odd reason, but I've included them here in case you want to be wild, and mix your hashtag game up a little. Some are also quite specific to particular photos, but I've included them anyway out of interest. Also, this is by no means an exhaustive list, I can now think of about ten that I fogot to add when I was compiling this list (but 130-ish hashtags is enough, right?)

All stats are (mostly) correct as of 27th Jan, 2019. Unless, of course, I've transposed them wrong, which isn't impossible. I'd also like to ask you, kind souls, not to judge me too harshly if I've made any spelling mistakes. My eyes began to gloss over words around the 30th hashtag, and I'm fairly certain there are 130 on this list. So, have a giggle on me.

I put them into random, handy little groups of 27 first, so you can cut and paste them and save them in your phone, with room to add three super specific hashtags when you post. They're mixed in size, with some very popular hashtags and also some smaller ones (remember, apparently the max hashtags you can use in a single post is 30).

P.S. If you wanna buy a book from Book Depository, Booktopia or Amazon, you should totally use my affiliate link, that way, through no extra cost to you, I get a little cha-ching on the side for my hours of insta research 😉

Top Tips For Low-Light Photography: General Tips and Tricks

Top Tips For Low-Light Photography_ General Tips and Tricks

Are you low with the winter blues, or is that just the light?

Ah, winter, that time of year with dreary, blue-tinged low-light. Perfect if blue-tinged dim things are your favourite to photograph, even better if they’re your ~aesthetic~, but that’s not the case for all of us. If you’ve found yourself upping that brightness slider on your favourite editing app just a little too much or tinting your photos orange to beat those winter blues, I have a few tips and tricks. It’s not just about the editing, it’s about the photography.Just because it’s the dead of winter, doesn’t mean your photography time should decrease. If you’re constantly posting on Instagram to engage with your followers and grow your account, a reduced amount of photography time can be a real pain. Since the beginning of winter a few weeks ago, I’ve been trawling the internet for tips and tricks to beat that cold, dim winter light. Now, it’s time to share what I’ve learnt (I’ll do my best to be correct, but I might be wrong about a few things, forgive me, I’m no professional).

The Guide

I’ll be dividing this guide into four posts, the first (this one) is about general tips and tricks for taking photos in low-light the second post talks about taking photos with a DSLR, mirrorless or other cameras with manual shooting capabilities. The third post will talk about using a phone or point and shoot camera and finally, the last post will cover editing for cold light (I’ll link them all here once they’re published).

General Tips

I did a poll on Instagram this morning asking if you guys prefer long or short posts, and the answer was a resounding short! So, I’m going to keep this to my absolute top three tips, and hope I can keep it under 1000 words.A lot of the general tips and tricks I’ll be chatting to you about are probably things you’re already doing, they’re a natural way to combat dim lighting. I’m going to cover them anyhow just in case you haven’t tried them yet.

Shooting the Sun

As a general rule in photography, middle of the day, sun high in the sky, isn’t the best time to take photos, nor is the night. You want to make the most of natural light as possible, so try to figure out what time of day has the kindest lighting. For me, it’s between 2 and 3pm. An inconvenient time, I’ll have you know. If you’re unable to shoot at those times of day due to work or school, I’d recommend taking a bunch of photos when you can like weekends, or your day off to make sure you have enough photos to take for the week.If there is no possible time when the sun (although hidden by a thick layer of clouds) brightens up the day enough to call it daylight, it might be an idea to invest in some lighting if you’re super serious about photography. Investing in lighting is by no means my first suggestion, it’s what I’d recommend if you’ve exhausted every single other option. I personally have no experience using artificial light to shoot it, all I know is that it’s not the best idea to use the lights in your ceiling as your main source of brightness.

Using a window

The window is generally the best source of natural light inside of a house. Shoot there. Even if the window is in an inconvenient place, like nowhere near your bed and you want a flat lay on a sheet, take the sheet to the window, and arrange your set up there. The results will be worth the hassle.Often an issue with windows is that the light only comes in on the one side of the photograph (the window side), and the opposite side is darker, and overall the lighting looks uneven. I’ve seen a lot of people recommend reflectors to combat this, but I’ve never personally used one. If uneven lighting is a real issue for you, hop on over to Pinterest or Google and see what others are recommending.

Avoid Blue

This one will come up in the fourth and final post in this series, but I felt it worthwhile mentioning here. Wintry light can often give photos a deep blue tinge, or a cold feel. If you really want to edit that out in the editing phase, it’s a wise idea to steer clear of shooting blue objects. Not only with they exacerbate the cold tones, but they’ll also lose their colour when you reduce the blue in editing.Having said this specifically about blue, I do think it’s important to be mindful of the tones that you include in. The colours will greatly affect the way your photo turns out, so it’s important to carefully select the colours of the objects you’re including in your shot.

That’s all for today, but I’ll be back tomorrow with part II of this winter photography guide!
