How to Instagram like a pro with Park and Cube. Instagram has become one of the world’s most well-loved social networks, having recently overtaken Facebook in terms of usage in the UK.

If you’re anything like the average Instagram user you’ll be on the photo-sharing up for up to 20 minutes a day, so how can you make sure the time you’re investing in your phone-based hobby is resulting in some truly creative results that you can be proud of?

We enlisted the help of multi-talented photographer, author and designer Shini Park of lifestyle blog Park & Cube to get her expert tips on how to curate the perfect Instagram shot.
