This weekend, you might have plans to go camping, bike riding, or to the local beach with your best friends. You're prepping your camera now and deleting memes saved to your phone to make room for a boatload of sunset selfies and close-ups of your toes dipped in the sand. When you get home, you'll likely post this fresh content onto your feed with one of these Instagram captions for photo-dump pictures.
Photo "dumps" are one of the latest trends on social media, and let users round up the memories they're making during a day trip or cozy night at home in one place. Instead of selecting two or three high-quality photos in their camera roll — and subsequently figuring out where they'd fit in a layout of their upcoming feed — users are opting to tap "share" right away and post their summer moments as they're happening, or soon after. On top of this, they're caring less about editing their photos so the shadows and highlights are perfectly balanced, and the colors look IG-worthy.
It's the perfect trend for a summer that's spent more at home, due to the coronavirus pandemic, and definitely makes the most of the "Select Multiple" feature on Instagram. In the past, you may have used this cool feature to post multiple selfies when you couldn't pick just one. But now, you can use it to round up your mems and "dump" them onto your feed, along with one of these captions.
