Tips & tricks for holiday pics
Tans fade, but memories last forever! Isn’t it brilliant that you can capture those great moments on holiday with your mobile (or compact camera) – because you always have it to hand. Right ladies? Find the best tips & tricks here to take the most gorgeous holiday snaps, then share them on Instagram or Facebook!
Have you ever noticed that photos taken on your phone are out of focus? That’s probably because your surroundings were too dark. Even an older phone can take good pictures with natural light. Tip: shuffle around a circle while standing outdoors with your phone in your hand so you can judge which direction the light falls best.
Keep your lens clean
A dirty lens can make for weird spots or discolorations. Try to avoid touching your lens, but if your lens gets dirty anyway, use the little cloth that came with your sunglasses to clean it.
The right background
Want a great picture of yourself in a bikini? If so, check the background carefully! When you want to focus all attention on a particular object, it is important that the background is neutral and not distracting. And smiiiiiiile!
Choose a neutral background
Go for a particular style
Want to add more consistency to your Instagram feed? Then take a critical look at your photos and think about which style suits you best. Are all your photos super colourful? Or are you more a lover of black-and-white? Try using the same filter on your first 12 pictures – they’ll look much more like a single whole!

Edit your photos
We don’t mean photoshopping them to make your legs look longer or your tummy look trimmer – you are beautiful the way you are! But there are all kinds of useful apps available, for example to remove excess shininess from your face, or blemishes, or to make your eyes stand out more. And sometimes it’s nice to give your hair just that little bit more volume ;). Our favourites: Afterlight, Facetune and VSCO Cam. Instagram itself also has a number of tools you can play with. For example, brightness, warmth, shade and accents. Try them out!
These handy tips & tricks will get you a long way towards taking great (holiday) pics! Now it’s up to you – trying it out is the most fun!
