It’d be a shame for all of your spring travels and outdoor adventures to go completely unappreciated by all of your social media followers this year. (What’s the point of traveling if no one even sees this filtered shot of a cappuccino next to a book on the porch of this bed and breakfast?) Thankfully, we’re here to help.
Here are a few tips to make sure your Instagram feed not only makes everyone else jealous of your fashionable excursions but also makes them realize you are, like, super spiritual too.
Stand at the edge of a dock/cliff/bridge/mountainside
Remember to turn your back to the camera so it’s obvious you’re pondering the glory of creation.
Take an overhead shot of some exotic meal that probably looks better than it tastes
If you don’t take a picture, why even order that weird colorful sushi thing?
Laugh at something with your head turned
What’s so funny? Who cares! You’re probably just overjoyed by finding a cool, old barn to stand in front of.
Find a back alley to walk through, and act like you just happen to be strolling by your perfectly positioned phone with its camera pointed at you.
You’ll look like a lunatic pacing back and forth for that perfect shot, but the validation from all those hearts will be worth it.
Dangle your feet off of something
It’s the perfect way to show off those new cool boots while you ponder the durability of this old Brooklyn fire escape.
