5 tips for taking great Instagram vacation pictures

tips for taking great Instagram vacation pictures

I just love to share pretty images on my Instagram feed especially during holidays. So today I’ll tell you guys some tips for great vacation pictures.

Use light in your photographs

What kind of atmosphere do you like? And what kind of light do you like; Back light, shadow, bright sunlight or the golden hour? I personally prefer shadow, backlight or soft sun light.


Get inspiration from other Instagram accounts or pinerest. – Note: Don’t copycat!! – By following other inspirational Instagram accounts you can get inspired or new ideas for a your photos.

Use different compositions and angles

Take your photos from another angle or compisition for surprising results. Make photos from above of beneath or shoot once with a completely different crop or zoom.

Spot beautiful locations

I think the background of your photograph is also an important part of your photograph. Before I go on holiday,  I search often on google or pinterest for some pretty photo locations. Or just walk around in the area of your stay. You’ll discover amazing places!

Take underwater photographs with your phone

Let’s be creative and try something different, take pictures with your phone underwater! You can buy a underwater case here.

Use editing apps like

  • VSCO CAM ( my favourite editing app)
  • Snapseed
  • Line camera
