Instagram Image Showcase #9

Yes, we’re back again for the second to last article in this series for 2022!

We’ve decided that although we enjoy creating these articles and that you all enjoy reading them, we don’t want to hammer this topic to the ground in a single year. Instead, we’ll wait until 2023 before we delve into this series again.

However, we still have this article and another one for you all to read later this month. We certainly think that we’ve chosen good images to delve into.

This image has starker contrast than the first image, with a mixture of deep browns, yellows, off-whites, and a strong splash of orange in the center.

Overall, we feel that the image makes turmeric visually appealing, which helps sell them to our audience.

3. The Delicious Joy of Chia Oats

We already knew about the health benefits of overnight chia oats and how tasty they are. So, we knew we had to seek an image of especially tasty-looking overnight chia oats.

We came across this image and wanted to use it because of its darker colors. We think this image has the starkest color contrast out of all of the ones on the list, even if it’s not the ‘darkest’ picture overall.

We think th
