Tip # 1 for Better Instagram Photos: Be Patient & Go Early
When taking Instagram photos in popular locations, you'll most likely be dealing with crowds. To avoid them, wake up early! Most tourists don't bother to get up for sunrise to take good Instagram images! Taking advantage of the morning will allow you to get the perfect lighting, beat the crowds, and take your time capturing images. If you choose not to go early, be patient! Other tourists have the right to enjoy a place as much as you do!
Tip #2 for Better Instagram Photos: Scout Locations Ahead of Time!
If you're taking pictures for golden hour, sunset, sunrise, etc., your time is limited! If you're already dealing with a line of people who want to take a photo in the same location, your time will be EVEN MORE LIMITED. That's why the hosts Kelsey Johnson and Dani Rodriguez suggest you visit places ahead of time so you can come back later with a gameplan for all of the beautiful images you're going to take. Make a note of the different shots you'd like to get and how you see the picture coming together so taking your Instagram photo is easy peezy lemon squeezy.
