If you are an Instagram user that loves photography (either as an amateur, or a professional), you must have noticed the importance of adding the right hashtags to your photos.

Instagram is a powerful social network that allows you to increase your reach and your audience, provided that your content is interesting and that you use the right hashtags. The use of proper Instagram hashtags allows you to find photos that are relevant to your interest and this also occurs to others that will discover your own photos.

Be careful, you don’t have to use 20 hashtags for each photo. Sometimes the right use of hashtags is more efficient than the random use of many of them.

Thus, if you are into photography and want to promote your work, here are some hashtags to use, depending on the type of your photos:
