Snack’s advise N1: Simple image = powerful message
Snack’s advice N2: Respecting rules of composition and framing
It’s important to work your images with a professional eye. Think of how you can draw emphasis to your message by playing around with the image composition. Focus on geometrical framing and simple composition.
Just by plunging into an image from above, you can often completely change they way you get your message across.
Snack’s advise N3: Colors people… Come on!

The ability to stage a clever “mise en scene” with their images can truly determine the success or failure of a brand on Instagram.
