One year ago I went on a trip to Bali with 20 photos and 400 followers on my Instagram account. I had never been big on Instagram but I was so amazed by the beauty of the beaches and wildlife there that I decided to start posting pictures seriously so I could share cool travel destinations with my friends. Now a few overseas trips later, my account has reached nearly 35,000 followers. Getting the perfect beach vacation picture can be tricky, but if you can do it well, it has the potential to boost your followers quickly.
For many, getting the best pictures for Instagram is an absolute must when on vacation, and if done correctly, it can increase an account's following. But don't be fooled, having everything you need for envy-inducing posts on the go isn't as effortless and easy as it looks—a good Instagrammer knows to turn up prepared.
