#MyMinnetonka How-To

Earlier this month a group of Minneapolis Instagrammers convened in their mocs at a local park to creatively snap and celebrate their #MyMinnetonka style.

At the InstaMeet we asked photographer Rita Farmer (@mamacita.rita) to give us a few tips on how to take the perfect #MyMinnetonka snapshot along with some other Insta-ideas to inspire your feed. 

Chase Light: It’s no secret that Golden Hour (the hour before the sun goes down) is dreamy for shooting just about anything. The long shadows, lens flare, and warm tones create a wonderful mood.

Look Down: Taking a picture of your feet provides an interesting perspective. Play with height and visually interesting surroundings.

Edit: Whether you’re using Instagram’s filters or editing with another app, choose presets that enhance the natural light and tones without making it look over-done. Some of my personal favorites are VSCOcam’s F2/Mellow and C1/Vibrant. With C1, I typically use the preset at about 60-70% strength and increase the fade slightly.

Finally, use hashtags for inspiration! The ones listed under each of the photos above are just a few that go perfectly with #MyMinnetonka snapshots.

Since a single Minnetonka style can be worn a million different ways, we asked bloggers Signe and Abby to each add their signature #MyMinnetonka style to a new fall favorite, the Side Zip Hidden Wedge.

Inspired by the simple silhouette, Signe and Abby each paired their wedges with a cute dress and differentiated the looks with essential autumn accessories – a cozy,colorful scarf and a leather jacket – to create two easy, effortless ways to transition their Minnetonka style from season to season.
