Tips For Your Best #winegram Shots!

Are you on Instagram? Of course you are. Everyone is. (So are we, and you can follow us here, if you don’t already. Which you really should be anyway.)

What were we saying? Oh, yeah… Everyone is on the gram. And so is their wine.

…the pressure to prove you’re living your best life is real. Eating at the best spots, lounging by paradisiacal pools, and, of course, getting buzzed on the right drinks — you gotta do it for the ‘gram.

Now we’ve got ways to do it better. Here, via VinePair, are some tips for your pics! And since our feed is made up mostly of your best pics, you’re going to want to read on!

Glasses or Bottles?

There are times, obviously, when you want to show the bottle for the sake of the label. (Or maybe the bottle itself, in some situations. But there are some photographers who prefer the artistic possibilities of the wine glass.

“The glass itself allows me to play with light and shadows, and stimulates my imagination…”

To capture the entire glass, shoot from the bottom. And don’t photograph a glass against the light, unless you’ve taken a moment to wipe off all those smudgy fingerprints!


One of the most important components of any good photo is lighting. Daytime is best for indoor photography, and allows for natural light without glare or shadows. Outside, that same natural light can work against you. Opt for the beginning or end of the day, avoiding the afternoon, for best results.

When dining out, avoid using your phone’s flash (which causes too much glare), and instead reflect the light from a companions phone onto a white napkin out of frame.

At home, you can use anything from a piece of paper to a white bath towel to redirect light and alter your shot. You’ll just need to play around until you find the look you like!
