To begin, I opened Instagram on my smartphone and also right here's exactly what I saw:
It's a little bit complicated, however the switch on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the current sight you have, even though that's definitely an usual interface convention. You're on the major feed which is accessed by the home button on the reduced left. Odd, I understand.
Tap on the camera icon on the bottom-- center!-- with the blue highlight. Currently your camera will certainly turn on and also you'll see a preview of the photo you're about to take:
To take a photo, tap on the blue button. Making a (short) video clip, faucet on the video camera symbol to the right of the switch.

Successive, I'll fine-tune the Comparison considering that I find that on my apple iphone, at least, it's constantly just a bit lower than I prefer:
