Your view is stunning: now it’s time to show it to the world. As simple as it may seem, there is a challenging part to it: how can you capture the view so that you are able to transmit the emotions and feelings attached to it?

Here are some handy tips for you to get started. Capturing pictures attract much more visitors and boost engagement. Here are our handy top 5 tips for you to get started.

1. Show your view during different times of the day.

A clear blue sky or golden hour sunset might be just as inspiring as a dazzling skyline at night. Play around with different shades and showcase the variety that your view offers. For a great example of this, check out our blog on the best Dubai skyline views.

2. Make sure you have proper lighting.

It’s a pity if you take a great shot and realize only later that it was blurred because of insufficient or excessive lighting. Luckily, nowadays there is a remedy to that. Try adjusting the luminosity, the shades and contrast of your picture to obtain the best result.

3. When possible, use a professional camera.

To clarify, nowadays our phones have cameras are just powerful enough to reproduce a great shot. Still, if you tend to be a bit old school, you might want to consider taking your next shots with a professional camera. Don’t have one? It’s always a good idea to check with your friends or family if you can borrow it.

4. Showcase your environment in a neat and tidy state.

Everybody wants to feel comfortable. You don’t want your environment to come across as messy. So, store your books and magazines back on the shelf, repolish your furniture and make your environment shine – Guests will really appreciate that.

5. Be creative!

We would love to tell you what the secret ingredient for a great picture is, but, at the end of the day, creativity is the spice to everything. Play around, try seizing different angles, showcase a particular feature of your view – surprise your Guests – they will appreciate it.
