Tips on Taking the Best Instagram Pictures in Maldives – A Picture Tells a 100 Stories

If any destination is Instagram worthy, it's got to be the Maldives. It's just one place which will make your followers hit those "like" buttons by the dozen while gaining you brand new followers too!


Make Sure Your Pictures Tell a Story

Start from the beginning of your trip; for instance, let your followers know your destinations and start off with pictures of your suitcase contents. Nothing spells sun, sand and sea like a bag containing suntan lotion, snorkel, bathing suit, shades etc. Next post pictures of views from your airplane, and more from your Maldives seaplane flight; these will be the best, as aerial views of the Maldives islands are quite breathtaking. Getting to resorts such as Kurumba Maldives is often via a private seaplane or speedboat ride, both of which offer great photo opportunities.


Keep Your Phone or Camera Close

Make sure to pack a waterproof bag for your electronic equipment, especially, phone and cameras. Remember, there is sand everywhere, and if it gets into your equipment it can ruin the sensitive parts. Besides the sand, you need to protect your camera and smartphone from water, as Maldives excursions are mainly focused on island hopping or activities like dolphin watching; while plenty of fab photo opportunities will be present, you will need to have those cameras ready and protect them at the same time.


Make Full Use of the Timer or Selfie Stick

Don't get left out of a good portion of your Maldives holiday photos, just because you are the designated cameramen. Instead, make full use of those selfie sticks or your camera's timer. It more fun to look back on photos and update your Instagram feeds, only when you are featured in a majority of the shots as well; hence, maybe investing in a selfie stick, will turn out to be a pretty good deal for you. Besides, being seen in your Instagram updates is ideal for building up a good fan base.


Concentrate on Those Scenic Shots

The Maldives is all about gorgeous environs, to fall in love with. Your luxury Maldives resort alone is going to have enough of scenic backgrounds to capture. Whether it's an amazing sunset, the ocean from a sandbar, beautiful islands, or glowing lagoons make sure your photos have plenty of depth; do this by capturing middle ground, foreground and background appropriately. Concentrate on a focal point, and make this stand out against the background; some of the best photos to come out of a Maldives holiday are those taken during the magic hours, which are the hours between sunrise and sunset.


Focus on the Character of the Place

To make your Instagram followers feel the true essence of the Maldives, make sure your photos bring out the essence of the place. For instance, the local fisherfolk, an ancient mosque on the white sands of an island or the ocean dotted with many coral islands. You can arm yourself with an underwater camera and bring the world of corals and amazing sea creatures to your followers, which is in truth all about a holiday in the Maldives.
