Posing guidelines: How To Pose In Vacation Pictures

 
Everything looked absolutely the same & absolutely boring no matter where I’ve travelled.

Some like to go on a vacation in the middle of winter, some like to take a little break every few months and we all can agree that during the summer our feed bursts from holiday photos.

Now, strong independent travellers try to avoid the most of the touristy places forgetting that those places are in the TO DO/SEE list not for nothing. Instead, they would enjoy top secret recommendations from friends and locals and spend the time in fabulous insta-worthy cafes drinking soy lattes and judging guided tourist groups through the window.

I WASN’T AN ExEPTION.

Last year I reached the point in my life when the majority of pictures from my trips was no different: a beautiful garden, a photogenic cup of cappuccino in a cafe.

Everything looked absolutely the same & absolutely boring no matter where I’ve travelled.

I decided to take a creative approach and to do this differently. Places, objects and other tourists became my biggest inspiration.

So, this is what I came up with. Please feel free to use this guide in your future travels at your best convenience.

Ladies and gents, my TOP 5 tips on how to pose in vacations pictures.
