It's a little bit confusing, but the switch under that's highlighted in blue? That's not the existing view you have, despite the fact that that's absolutely a typical user interface convention. You get on the primary feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Weird, I understand.

Tap on the camera symbol on the bottom-- facility!-- with the blue emphasize. Now your camera will activate as well as you'll see a sneak peek of the image you will take:


To take an image, tap on the blue switch. Making a (brief) video clip, tap on the video camera symbol to the right of the button.

If you're participating in a concert, visiting a scenic spot, at a meeting, all these likely have hashtags you can use to assist your pictures get exposure. However, if that appears frustrating, don't worry concerning it and also simply add an interesting and/or witty message.
