Photographer Aaron Pegg is known for his rapidly growing Instagram account (@underground_nyc) where he turns grungy NYC subways into stunning moments of storytelling.
We caught up with Aaron to learn more about his creative process and how to get Instagram-famous, or at least pull likes in the double digits.
As far as filters and editing overall, it’s really up to the individual and their style. I prefer a clean natural editing look when it comes to portraits and a more moody feel when it comes to landscapes.
There really is no secret to getting many likes on one photo. Some do really well and some don’t. I just try to keep my work consistent and post what I like.
Like I mentioned earlier, composition is everything. You can have three photographers who shoot the same subject and have three totally different perspectives. I love leading lines and symmetry so I try to incorporate these features in each of my photos.
As far as the best times to post, it takes time for you to learn about your demographic of followers. Over time, you’ll notice what time of day and what days are best for your audience. However, in general, the best times during the week day are morning (8am-10am EST, lunch time (12pm-2pm EST) and after work (7pm-9pm EST). Sunday evenings are great as well.
