Take your blog & Instagram photos to next level

Hey, my fellow blogger friends! 😘 I’ve received a lot of questions from you guys regarding how I edit my photos and which camera do I use for my blog and Instagram, so here it is, I decided to put all these useful information together to help you boss babes level up your visual game.

 Photo editing apps

  1. VSCO
    This is probably the one that I use the most and super popular among instagrammers. It has various filters to create ‘film-like’ tones and there are settings tutorial on Pinterest for beginners to create constant feed as well (you can find them on Pinterest easily).
  2. Afterlight
    If you wonder how some bloggers create the light leaks and dusty filter look, this app will be your best friend, it’s also free and they released an Afterlight 2 as well.
  3. Meitu
    This is the magic app when you wanna fix your blemishes or uninvited acnes. It has amazing skin smoothing feature and super user-friendly, this will save your life.
  4. Huji
    The design of this app looks like a vintage film camera and it creates a super retro filter look if you’re looking for some creative/edgy look, it’s a fun app to play with after all.


I’ve received this questions all the time and a lot of you are curious about what camera do I use for my blog & Instagram. As a blogger who needs to be able to capture the moment or snap whenever you see a nice backdrop, I would recommend a mirrorless camera.

  1. Sony Alpha a6000
    This is the previous camera which I used for my photography as well as my blog, it has wifi of course. I LOVE the quality of this camera and it creates amazing images and videos. You can also buy the body only and purchase another lens (what I recommend).
  2. Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
    This is my current camera and I love it. It’s soooo light and compact, you can pretty much fit it into your pants pocket, snap and take videos then wifi to your phone to edit. It’s a point and shoot yet can create the ‘depth of field’ effect and SMOOTH YOUR SKIN. A lot of vloggers are obsessed with this camera and its lowlight capability are awesome. I use this camera a lot when I travel or normal product shots.
  3. Canon EOS 6D or Canon EOS 6D Mark II
    I use this camera mainly for my photography service purpose and recently added for personal use. It is my babe and a lot of photographers LOVE this camera. However, I would recommend a mirrorless camera for bloggers who prefer a lighter option and look for ‘depth of field’ blurry background outfit photos, because the sony alpha a6000 or a6500 can totally do this job wonderfully.


  1. Nifty Fifty (50mm 1.8)
    For Canon |  For Sony
    These are the most affordable lens and so versatile for portraits and whole body shots. I used my 50mm for EVERY. SINGLE. THING.

Examples of my images taken with Sony a6000 & 50mm 1.8 (It was a shoot I did with a local blogger Paige from Austin.)

I hope this post helps you along your blogging journey and please comment below if you have any questions! I’d love to write some more informative post☺️ I’m no expert by the way, haha! Thanks for reading. xx

    Thank you for the app info, granted my camera isn’t that great at the moment the app features can assist with a great turn out.
