Top Tips for Taking Great Travel Photos on Instagram!

Top Tips for Taking Great Travel Photos on Instagram!

Author -  Pops

 

1. Take candid natural photos


Posed photos are fine, but photos that capture a natural moment look a lot better! Take photos of your subjects when your subject doesn’t know thecamera is on them.

2. Rule of Thirds.

Breaking your photo up with the rule of thirds makes a viewer interact with it more naturally and makes it more balanced. The idea is that you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines. People’s eyes usually go to the intersection points rather than the centre of the shot.

3. Use Natural Light.

Natural light is a lot better for your photos, so forget the flash. Taking photos in the early morning or early evening will give you softer light, so get up early to get those instaworthy photos!
