Sanne reveals her funniest travel blooper photo
Do picture-perfect travel selfies sometimes make you feel insecure? Don’t be! Even your favorite bloggers don’t feel confident all the time. And their ‘perfect’ photos often take time (not even talking about the editing part). So what if we stopped worrying about what we look like on a photo? What if we were able to laugh at ourselves a bit more?
In this series, travel bloggers share their funniest travel blooper photo. What’s the story behind their photo? Would they dare to post it on their social media? And do they think less photoshopped, and even unedited photos, can become a trend? Let’s find out which blooper Sanne shared with us!
1. Hi Sanne! Tell us a little bit more about yourself?
Hi! My name is Sanne. A 29-year-old from the Netherlands who blogs about travel, lifestyle, money, and mind on my blog Sanne Timmermans.
2. Can you tell us more about your travel blooper photo?
Trinidad is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, so you can imagine that there are lots of Instagram-worthy spots everywhere you go! This photo was taken on our last day in Trinidad. I had to have a picture in this colorful street. My boyfriend took his job very seriously and took a ton of pictures, including this one. I have no idea what I’m doing here, but the pose, the face, and the hair are hilarious. It reminds me of the hunchback of Notre Dame!
Yes, I would dare to post this photo, but I didn’t! I did, however, show the picture to family, friends, and colleagues. If I would post this photo online, I would post it after the successful picture, so you would have to swipe to see it.
4. Do you ever feel any pressure to only post “perfect” photos online?
I think I do feel pressure in a way, but that has more to do about having a visually appealing Instagram account. I don’t have a large following and a lot of my followers know me in real life, which is why I don’t stress that much about my photos. I do think that I can spend too much time editing my photos.
5. Do you think less photoshopped, and even unedited photos, can become a trend?
Yes! In fact, I feel like it is already becoming a trend. I follow several girls on Instagram who don’t take themselves to seriously or promote self-love by posting unedited photos.
6. What’s your best tip for someone who feels insecure about their online presence?
Unfollow accounts that make you feel insecure, jealous or unhappy and start following accounts that you can relate too and make you feel good.
