Nine types of Instagram photos we’re all guilty of taking!

Ever feel like your Instagram feed is just the same stuff over and over again? Yup, us too. It’s probably because 99.9% of pics uploaded can be broken down into these nine categories. We bet you’re guilty of a few of these!

1. The food porn shot
Who can resist snapping a sneaky picture of their #vegan quinoa salad? Or that gorgeous fudge brownie that’s just been sat in front of you? If all your followers don’t get food envy, the meal may as well not have happened.
