ColorKuler: What Color is Your Instagram? 4 comments


As a blogger and photographer, one of my goals is consistency across my brand. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to branch out and try new things, but I want┬ápeople to look at my photographs and instantly recognize them by style and color. For example, I’m drawn to moody photos and darker colors, so I try to capture that in my photography. But I also recognize that these images can also read as sad, so I try to balance them with light and airy images as well.

In order to figure out where my color scheme lies, I entered my Instagram name {DaenelT} into the ColorKuler search bar and let it do its thing…

After analyzing the last 16 photos in my Instagram feed, ColorKuler determined that my color is Dimgray.

I can honestly say, I was surprised to find that my colors lean towards the grays, especially when it feels like most of my photos are dark and moody. This just goes to show that it sometimes helps to see your work through fresh eyes {even if those “eyes” are algorithms}. Overall, I’m happy with the results because I am a big fan of neutrals with pops of colors {as evidenced by the single image with the muted greens and bright blues and pinks}.

If you’re a blogger or business owner, this is a great tool to use for marketing consistency and setting a cohesive look for your brand. What do you see when you look at your photos? How about your blog {if you’re a blogger}? Do you think your view meshes with what others see?

Happy Snapping,

    I love how color related to our lives. I got silver, which wasn’t listed. So, I had to go on a hunt for the meaning.

    • Oh, how interesting! I’m sure it signifies that you’re unique.

  • Found this fascinating. My colors are similar to yours only warmer tones rather than grays and cool browns. My color is Indian Red. I think your color is pretty well spot on with the colors on your blog but mine is off a bit. I have read some about branding and have thought about branding my pins and boards on Pinterest but the process sounds time consuming. And I am not sure I really want everything that ‘dress right dress’. More of a haphazard kinda girl, I think.

    • It’s funny, because I played with ColorKuler, I thought I was rather haphazard as well. In fact, I always describe myself as a “go where the wind blows” kind of person, so this uniformity / cohesiveness is very surprising. As for the branding, I’ll admit, that I have thought about it as well, but I don’t think I’m that committed {despite what ColorKuler says}. LOL But I do know that some folks are hoping to turn their blogs into side hustles.
