Our Bookstagram Story
I discovered #bookstagram about a year ago and feel in love hard and fast. First and foremost, what is bookstagram exactly? Well its basically staged photos featuring, you guess it books. When I first started I had no idea what I was doing, but here's the great thing about bookstagram. There are no rules. None, just have fun with it.
As I said you can literally do whatever you want with bookstagram. Whether it's adding flowers, elements perhaps from the book itself, scarfs, a cup of coffee or tea. Some delicious snacks that you might eat while reading. The sky is the limit.
Now I won't say that I'm a professional photographer. In fact I am nothing of the sort. I use my Iphone to take pictures and I might use some filters to enhance the picture a bit. I've grown to love it and I've also met some wonderful people online because of it. The Bookstagram community is amazing and there are no shortage of stunning photos on insta. I've also found my next read or two or three because of some bookstagram pics I've seen.
I have to give some shout outs to some of my fav bookstagrammers and I highly recommend that you follow them.

I have recently started taking requests for Bookstagram photos! I specialize in flatly photos and you can see my work at www.instagram.com/booksmacked or by following me on insta where my handle is @booksmacked. I can do both paperback and Ebook photographs. Please keep in mind I cannot accept every request and a photo does not guarantee a review. To request a bookstagram please send your request to email@example.com with the subject line bookstagram.
