The 10 Best Instagram Communities You Can Find on Scopio


Need some visual inspiration to fuel creative pursuits, or just some fresh photos to use in your marketing? Instagram is probably your best bet. Besides hosting a mishmash of everyday moments, it's also home to niche communities of talented creators that document everything under the sun.

Scopio searches offer more than just boards of filtered Instagram content. Over time, they also help you find relevant high-quality hashtags and these niche Instagram communities. Scopio's team members filled us in on the 10 of the very best Instagram communities they've uncovered over the years using Scopio's dashboard (thanks, hashtag tool!). So whether you're a photographer looking for inspiration or a brand sourcing marketing content from Instagram, keep tabs on these solid Instagram communities.

There are also 10 suggested terms from Scopio's hashtag tool under each community's blurb. If you really like one community, why not check out some related content?

#IHaveThisThingWithPink

 

If you're a sucker for color or all things rosy-toned, #IHaveThisThingWithPink is the Instagram community for you. We traced its origins to blogger, Instagrammer and Chicagoan Kyla Herbes, who posts on the account @ihavethisthingwithpink when she's not busy posting about home decor or lifestyle.

The #IHaveThisThingWithPink hashtag is a space where Herbes' followers and fans can post their own pink squares and engage with each other. Like other accounts that turn into hashtags, #IHaveThisThingWithPink is both a high-quality feed and a concentrated, supportive community.

If you're a fan of this one, check out hashtags like #IHaveThisThingWithWalls, #IHaveThisThingWithColor or even #IHaveThisThingWithTiles. There's a lot more where that came from, too.

#UrbanJungleBloggers

 

What's just as cool as a sleek minimalist apartment or a beautifully restored Victorian home? People that turn every spare nook and cranny in their home into space for a plant to grow. You'll find a lot of these green-thumbed folks on the #UrbanJungleBloggers Instagram community, and their dedication to their plant collection is nothing short of amazing. 

Like the previous tag, #UrbanJungleBloggers is the hashtag spinoff to the @UrbanJungleBlog Instagram feed itself. And unsurprisingly, much of their feed is populated by content posted to their hashtag. If you're looking for something related to nature or home decor that's out of the norm, #UrbanJungleBloggers is a great start.

#FilmIsNotDead

☕️🗞

A post shared by antoine ott (@antoine_ott) on

 

Camera film might not be as ubiquitous as it was in previous decades, but that doesn't mean that many Instagrammers aren't fiercely devoted to keeping film alive. It's not difficult at all to see why. The soft, nostalgic air that film imparts on a photograph is often imitated by phone apps or computer software, but never truly replicated.

 

 

The photographers on the #FilmIsNotDead Instagram community (and the ones that peruse the corresponding FND website regularly) really believe in the creative process. They know that even though film can be slow, it makes up for that by delivering remarkable artistic results.

It's honestly pretty difficult to find a hashtag offering the same artistic prowess as #FilmAsNotDead. Instagram communities like these are treasures in their own right.

#Eeeeeats

Trying to figure out a way to smuggle these donuts back to the East Coast🍩

A post shared by Julie Denby (@julesdenby) on

 

If there's one Instagram community we can all enjoy, it has to be one featuring beautiful food shots, right? This niche tag does a great job at attracting top-notch food bloggers. And though there are countless other Instagram hashtags devoted to food (think #foodie or plain old #food), none are truly as on-point as #eeeeeats. An added bonus? This particular Instagram community also does a great job of bringing all kinds of foodies together, from raw vegans to dessert bloggers. We love the solidarity.

#GoProOfTheDay

 

We're fans of all things adventure and travel, and GoPro Instagram communities marry these topics perfectly. Instagrammers using the #GoProOfTheDay hashtag are usually sharing their more rugged moments, whether that's cliff diving into the sea or driving an ATV across rough terrain. If you're the type that loves to get outside, you can probably live vicariously through this hashtag.

#NYCPrimeShot

 

New York City isn't the center of the universe, but it's definitely one of the most famous cities on earth. And understandably, the photographers that live or travel there like to make sure it can live up to the expectations.

By documenting NYC and posting about it on Instagram communities like #NYCPrimeShot, Instagrammers can share New York's beauty and unique character with their followers (and the world). 

 

 

We recommend starting here if you're on the hunt for great city photos.

#Lightroom

 

#Lightroom is probably the most general interest Instagram community you'll find in this entire list, but that doesn't mean the content is spammy or low-quality. In fact, many of the folks posting on this hashtag (which is named after Adobe's photography software of the same name) are rising photographers that want to get their work noticed by brands or other photographers.

#Lightroom is a great starting point if you're looking for photographers to work with. The images do lean towards a professional side, but it's worth a try.

#StreetLeaks

 

Henri Cartier Bresson might have pioneered street photography back in the early 20th century, but you can still see how his work has impacted street photographers everywhere on the #StreetLeaks hashtag. If you're looking for these kinds of raw images, look no further than to all the Instagram communities focusing on street photography. #StreetLeaks, which also has its own dedicated account, just happens to be one of our favorites.

#ZaiShanghai 

A river runs through it. #Regram from @keenan.samway #thatsshanghai

A post shared by That's Shanghai (@thatsshanghai) on

 

Like New York, Shanghai just begs to be photographed. Its towering skyscrapers, serene temples and colorful city streets also mean that there's no short supply of Instagram-worthy locations there, and that's exactly what Instagrammers document on the #ZaiShanghai hashtag.

 

 

When we feel like travelling here at Scopio but can't get out of town, this is one of the first hashtags we scroll through. Gotta live vicariously sometimes, right?
