The VSCO app can help you take your photos to the next level. If you’ve never heard of it before, then where have you been? Every major blogger, influencer or anyone serious enough about their Instagram feed will tell you that VSCO is an app you need to experiment with. You can subscribe for premium filters, edit the levels on each photo and take your feed to the next level by adding them to a grid before you upload them.
So, if you’re trying to create Instagram goals or become the next biggest content creator, then here’s a good place to start. They have filters for every mood, every color scheme and every vibe you want to achieve/create. It might even give you some inspiration. We tested out the best filter combinations on the internet with photographs of our Getting Stuff Done planner, trust us, these are the coolest VSCO cam filters to try right now.
1. INDIE BLUSH
Good for light, bright photos. We used this one for whiter, brighter photos with dark elements. C1 is quite light already, but the presets of this filter combination brings the saturation down and gives it quite a vintage feel. If you want your feed to have a slight hue to the photos, this is the one to use! C1 is free and can be found in your VSCO app.
2. MINIMAL AND MODERN
This is the perfect filter for a minimalistic theme with a blush, girly tone. We used this filter and presets to pick up pinkish tones and soften whites. It’s light, slightly faded and picks up nude and pink tones perfectly. C7 is part of the Chromatic Collection and is around $2.99 for 6 filters.
3. NATURAL AND BRIGHT
This filter picks up green tones perfectly. We used this for any photos with undertones of green or blue. It really lightens pale tones whilst defining darker warmer tones. As long as your photo has lots of natural light, it will look amazing! Filter 05 is part of The Legacy Collection and is around $1.99 for 10 filters.
4. MODERN GRUNGE
If you’re after something a bit edgy, this is the perfect filter for you. Dusty, grungy and a little dark, this is a great filter for those cool days out. You can add some grain or scratches to this filter to give it a really edgy feel. If your feed is a little darker, this one is for you. P5 is a free filter.
5. SUMMER VACAY
Vacation season is nearing once again, which means you can upload your lush holiday pics to Instagram with this filter. We used this on our brighter, sunnier photos with pops of pink to really bring it to life. HB1 is free too, just navigate to the shop and download the free HypeBeast collection!
