Do you want to share your love for travelling with people all over the world?
Well, here are some tips that will set you on the track towards becoming a travel pro on Instagram. Read on!
Visit lots of different places
This is a no-brainer, of course. Variety is the spice of life and your followers will appreciate being able to view lots of different landscapes.
While having a themed feed works for some users, most people report being drawn to users that have lots of different landscapes on their feed. So if your last vacation was at a hill station, it’s time to hit the beach!
Post-processing to the rescue
While most pictures look best natural, especially landscapes, sometimes a photograph lacks the right saturation or contrast. To fix this you should process your pictures using some editing software. If you are using your mobile, I strongly recommend VSCO.
Presets snatch away a lot of your freedom, and using the same preset over and over will make your feed monotonous. It’s all right to use them on occasion, but it’s recommended that you avoid overdoing it. Instagram also offers a variety of presets, but personally I think they are too dramatic. Always go for the most subtly preset you can find.
Include life in your pictures
Your viewers will feel more engaged if your pictures also have some life in them. Try to capture portraits of local people, or include people in you landscapes. Some movement in the picture also works great.
Make your captions engaging
Use captions to add more depth to the picture. It can be an anecdote or something strange and endearing about the place you chose to photograph. Help your viewers understand why you chose to photograph what you photographed. If the picture features some people, talk to them and ask them if there is anything they want to share, and use that as a caption.
The only way to get a stunning photograph is to be fearless. If you want to capture something that no one else has, then you will have to pull yourself together and photograph what no one else had the guts to. Talk to people, go out there and free yourself of all inhibitions. Honest photography is the best photography.
