Step-by-Step Guide to Your Perfect Vacation OOTD Shot
By Therese Aseoche
Traveling is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We love flying off to different countries to see the must-sees and do the must-dos. But there’s nothing we love more about traveling than taking the perfect vacation OOTD shot. Here’s our step-by-step guide for getting that perfect snap that will get you that hundred likes, as shown to us by our country’s favorite Instagram queens.
8. Find a famous landmark for your background element
Step one: find a famous landmark or a widely recognized site that will tell people right away where you are without you having to say so in your caption, or geo-tagging your post.
7. Pretend like you don’t know it’s there.
Step two: whatever you do, don’t be tempted to make it look like the garden-variety tourist shots you see people make memes out of. Don’t pretend to hold it on your hand, rest your foot on it, or point at it as though you’re telling people, “Please don’t look at me; look at that view!” In nailing your perfect vacation OOTD shot, you have to put the attention to yourself; the landmark is just a wonderful element to your background for more #HumbleBragging.
6. Lean against the wall.
Step three: see that nice wall? Lean on it. Prop your foot up. Choose your wall carefully to match your mood and make your outfit pop.
5. Scratch your head.
Step four: run your hand through your hair. Don’t literally scratch it; rather, look as if you’re trying to solve a difficult math question. Or better yet, like you’re tucking your hair behind your ear to casually glance at that cute local at a distance (whether there is one or not at that moment).
