What intrigued us most, though, is the excellent Instagram photo-taking skills they possess. During our mini-chat with the group, they shared some of their winning snap secrets—and we've listed them down for you:
1. Observe how other people do it. They begin with watching other people’s videos and photos and then think, "I wanna do it, too."
2. Take in the view first. Another technique is when going to a new location, put down your camera, look around, and try to experience the place before taking my photos and you can surely see a beautiful perspective from there.
3. Find good dimension. And also try to bring out the saturation.
4. Edit manually. Nowadays, people are addicted to filters. So the group recommends manual editing. Usually, the sharpen tool is all they need.
5. Follow other travel Instagram accounts for inspiration. If you're still not following them, it's time to click "follow" now.
