The popularity of lifestyle photography on Instagram

by admin

Instagram has evolved from simply being a photo-sharing app to one of the most active and popular social media platforms in the world. Instagram is reported to have 1.074 billion users in 2021 and it has been reported that an average user spends 53 minutes in the Instagram app per day whereas, in Facebook, it is 58 minutes on average. Optimizing the Instagram app by allowing the users to add stories increased the time spent by the users in their app. All these facts show that Instagram is a fast-growing social media platform and it is attracting more new users to them day by day.
People share thousands of photographs on Instagram daily and most of them are related to both informal and formal events of the lives of its users. Posting events of their lives has become a trend nowadays on Instagram, but the point is what is different between posting usual photographs and lifestyle photographs?

What is lifestyle photography?
Suppose you are your favorite restaurant and you take a photo of your plate and post it on Instagram or any other social media platform. It does not reveal much sense of the interaction you have with the surrounding or the life event you have been experiencing clearly. But in lifestyle photography, more focus is given to the interactions people have with others or with the environment to give the viewers an idea of the life spent by the person who posts the photograph. In lifestyle photography, it could be only one photograph or sequence of photographs that resemble a certain life event of a person.
