To use high-quality, professional photos, check out Unsplash. This website has photos in every category, and it’s free! Don’t forget to credit the artist and landscape/model. You can use these photos on their own or build on them. Try changing out some photos on Canva templates with more relevant photos from Unsplash.
Finally, a good photo post starts with a quality photo. Check out the focus filters on your phone, such as the food focus and selective focus. Also, there’s an “edit” wand that perfects lighting and rids blemishes. Then, your photo will be prepped for further additions.
