Instagram hashtags for photography

One of the keys to success in Instagram lies in the correct use of hashtags. In this post I will explain my experience and some reflections.
I started using the following hashtags:

#photo #photogram #photographylovers #photooftheday #artwork #artoftheday #photodaily #instagood #followme #newartist #photochallenge #photooftheweek #beautiful #instaart #artshow #artgallery #fineart #myart #albertmora #creative #inspiration #artstudio #artlovers #picoftheday #instalike #instamood #instacool #artsy #artphoto #digitalart

… but mysteriously my photos did not appear in any type of search. Investigating a bit, I discovered that some hashtags are banned. See more in this post:

The next step was to choose non-banned hashtags:
#photo #travellingthroughtheworld #photographylovers #photooftheday #artwork #artoftheday #photodaily #visuals #newartist #photochallenge #photooftheweek #beautiful #peoplescreatives #artshow #artgallery #justgoshoot #myart #albertmora #creative #inspiration #exploretocreate #artlovers #picoftheday #worldtravelbook #artphoto #digitalart #photos #photography #instagoodmyphoto

With this new set things were better, the problem was that many of them are too popular, this makes that accounts with few followers (like mine) have very little chance of appearing in the prominent places (reserved for those pics with more engagement).

So my next step has been to choose hashtags that have between 10,000 and 1,000,000 hits. Also, I’ve added some “feature hashtags” (if you use those branded hashtags you have the chance of being featured in popular accounts).

So this is my new set (this does not mean, I always use the same onee, but these will be my “core” hashtags, for example you can see more sets in this link):
