However, getting the best photos for Instagram while traveling isn’t as easy as it appears to be on professional traveler’s Instagram and online social media pages.

  1. Timing is the key

The most basic rule of photography is based on timing. If you have been witnessing the best moments of your life or with the object you have been staring for a very long time and can’t time perfectly to capture the unique properties of that moment, then you are missing the whole point of photography. Finding the perfect time is the key and when it comes to travel, many travel photographers have said many times that sunrises and sunsets are the best friends of photographers as they offer long shadows, soothing light conditions and fewer crowd do disturb your frame. Needless to say, the beauty of the sunrise and sunset is itself quite inspiring and will give you the refreshed spirit to get into the mood of clicking the best travel photos for your Instagram.

  1. Don’t Forget the Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds is arguably one of the most used and discussed rules of all time in the photography world. Many of us think that these rules of photography can only be used when you are doing a professional photoshoot or have high-end cameras to execute them. However, in recent devices and even the mobile phones, software have begun to give the grid to use in the rule of thirds that give your object the perfect highlight whilst adjusting the surroundings of both foreground and background as a perfect decoration to your object. As much as rule of thirds is important in photography, it is also quite useful when you are traveling and capturing the best moments for your Instagram.

  1. Keeping things natural is all you need

Putting so many filters, expressions and frames are quite common these days and whether you believe it or not, these additions in the photographs are the biggest filter to find out the difference between a professional and an amateur photographer. What we see through our eyes are the biggest inspiration and is the originality of nature, culture and lifestyle. Thus, keeping things in their original form is the biggest key to keep your Instagram feed filled with perfect and inspiring posts. Many travel photographers have been using some basic tactics and tricks to keep their pictures sharp and presentable which will lead us to our point number 4.

  1. Ratio of Editing Images

During our research, we came across many statements of professional photographers as well as Instagrammers that even if you need to edit your pictures to reduce the noise, add more clarity and sharpness into your photographs, you must do whatever you feel like and then reduce the adjustments to half. Many software available in the market give the user an edge to adjust the edits made in the image on the ratio required. It is often found that during our image editing process, we go way beyond ahead from what it actually requires and leave us with an image that is neither original nor presentable. Hence, once you are done with all your editing, just bring down your entire adjustment to 50 percent and you are good to go and post your pictures on your Instagram.

  1. Basic Elements to Get Perfect Shots

One simply cannot get all the perfect shots in one go and you should keep in mind that taking more photos give you the liberty to filter out the best and worse from the collection. Also, while you are taking pictures, understanding the lights, motion of objects and usage of surrounding to make the images impactful is important. Understanding your device is the key to know what and how are you going to capture your perfect moment. Selfies are not in fashion anymore and you should start taking pictures with other humans to give the viewer an idea of the size of objects presented in your pictures. Keeping your lens clean and screen smudge-free is essential to get clear photos and perfect idea of what you have captured.

Traveling is an experience that cannot be described in words, hence people have begun to capture those moments that have inspired them and brought to the people they know or follow using the social media. Instagram frenzies are among those who have been in the top charts of inspiring people by giving not just great shots, but also description to give others the inspiration to travel the world and witness all the beauty existing on the face of the earth in person. So, if you are thinking to bring your Instagram account on top when it comes to travel photos, then you should probably start finding some great camera and applications whilst booking your next travel with SmartFares to ensure great savings by using our variety of cheap flights and offers on air tickets.
