A post shared by Memes • Comedy • Culture (@memezar)
A popular account called Memezar, which has almost 23 million followers, reposted a photography explainer video via an account called @jdthecameraguy.
The video shows the photographer trying to take a photo of some buildings on his phone and then explaining a trick to make the scene look even more impressive.
He says: "Put your phone on 0.5 zoom.
"Flip your camera upside down.
"Then make sure the bottom two grids have the sky in it.
"This will help you create a good composition.
"Once you have that all set, just take the picture and it should look something like this."
He then reveals his photo flipped the right way around.
The Memezar account joked in its caption "First step: Have an iPhone 11 or better."
Lots of other similar videos explaining the technique have appeared on Instagram.
Some people love it but others have commented to complain they don't find the picture that impressive.

iPhone tricks to try today
Here are some of the best…
- Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
- Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
- Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
- Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X or later model), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
- Check if you're due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you're down to 80% capacity. If you're below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
- Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
