To begin, I opened up Instagram on my smart device and right here's what I saw:
It's a little bit confusing, yet the switch under that's highlighted in blue? That's not the present view you have, even though that's absolutely a typical user interface convention. You get on the main feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Weird, I recognize.
Faucet on the camera symbol on the bottom-- facility!-- with heaven highlight. Now your camera will activate and also you'll see a sneak peek of the photo you will take:
To take an image, faucet on the blue button. To earn a (short) video clip, faucet on the video camera icon to the right of the switch.

Next up, I'll tweak the Contrast given that I find that on my iPhone, a minimum of, it's constantly simply a bit less than I like:
