CultureInspirationPhotography21 Creative Hashtags you need to follow

Last week I gave you 21 24 amazing Creative Instagrammers that would guarantee endless scrolling & fill your Instafeed with inspiration. This week I’m looking a bit deeper into Instagram: hashtags.


#. Hashtag. What is a hashtag? It’s a descriptive word which can be used to group and collect other similar pieces of information. You’ve probably come across Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and TV – most events/programmes have one.

Hashtags are a great way for searching/ directing others to your content. The trick is not to use totally obvious/common ones though because your post will just get lost in the feed e.g. if you’re posting a photo of a dog in a park, don’t just hashtag #dog and be done with it. You should hashtag the breed #sausagedog, the location #Hydepark #WestLondon #London, as well as any other relevant related tags e.g. #dogsofinstagram #petstagram #mansbestfriend #furryfriend – I don’t post images of dogs so I’m just guessing here. The general gist is to think outside of the box and discover good hashtags.

How do you find good hashtags? I usually find them via looking at other people’s posts and a bit of something I like to call ‘hashtag hopping’. Basically just going from hashtag to hashtag, looking at good posts and seeing which other hashtags are used. It does take a bit of digging, but it’s worth it in the end. So I wanted to share a few creative hashtags that I have discovered to get you started on your journey:
