Avoid blurriness.

Having blurry photos is every photographer’s worst nightmare. People will not properly recognize where you are, even if you’re in a luxurious place like our lavish hotel in Station 1, Boracay. No one will even notice you were there because your face will also appear unrecognizable.

To refrain from making this mistake, here are the possible solutions. First, clean the camera lens of your phone. It might have been smudged by your fingers. Second, wait until your camera focuses on the subject. There are times when it would take a while for the shot to be clear on your screen, so be patient. Lastly, try not to zoom in too much. Zooming would only increase the chances of the photos being blurry. Adjusting or resizing the pictures is easier to do by cropping your wide or long shot photos than by taking the photos all over again.

Check the lighting.

As you take pictures in your favorite hotel or resort, you must also check if the lighting for the photo is perfect. Make sure the light is not pointing in front or at the sides of your camera lens. It will diminish the quality. The light should always come from the back of the camera or be pointed toward the subject or model. If you are shooting outside, search for the right area where the sun is not directly shining on your lens. Even if you are a professional photographer or are adept in photo editing, it is best to play it safe and have the best light source for your subject.

Use props for creativity.

How about you add a little flare by using props for your shots? Hold a bouquet of flowers to show the power of gratitude or balloons as a sign of celebrating a special occasion, raise a wine glass to display elegance, or show off and sip your favorite drink while relishing your me-time moment in our pristine swimming pool. Remember that incorporating decorations for your photos is always the best idea!

Look for aesthetic backdrops.

Backgrounds play an integral role in the photo, especially now that we are in the digital age. Make sure to look for a background that is pleasing to the eyes. You may keep it simple or grandiose depending on the occasion or your needs. In our top resort in Station 1, Boracay, you will find all sorts of simple yet enchanting backdrops like the awesome amenities, the eye-catching rooms, the astounding dining area, and the jaw-dropping stretch of Boracay’s island.
