Posing guidelines: How To Pose In Vacation Pictures
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.
