That famous Bread song conveys “a picture paints a thousand words” and as visual storytellers, we explore techniques to know what belongs in the frame, what to emphasize in the snapshot, and how to use elements of composition to convey a meaningful story.

As we celebrate @instagram’s 5th birthday this week, let’s revisit our snapshooting techniques and level up our visual storytelling through #IGVisualStories.

Today, Saturday 10-October-2015, we’re asking fellow Instagram’ers to snap, filter, and share visual stories with PATTERNS, of compositions with repeated decorative design.

Spread creativity and positivity with your posts using your favorite photo edit and filter apps. Tag your post/s to @IGersManila and don’t forget to add #IGersManila #9pmhabit #IGVisualStories #IGersPhilippines to your photo or video caption so we can add your work to our collage and get the chance to be featured as a #PhotoPick.

Keep the good vibes rolling! #ktgvr
