The trick Belgian bloggers use to take bold, dangerous pictures is the process of finding places, practicing poses, using wide-angle lenses …

Camille Demyttenaere and Jean Hocke are famous on Instagram for travel photos around the world. The couple are from Belgium, live in London (UK) and spend most of their time traveling everywhere. They became a viral phenomenon in 2019 after posting photos on board. The photo looked dangerous, causing viewers to worry that both could lose their lives if they accidentally fell down. However, the couple said that the post that had more than 70,000 likes at the time of writing was actually an optical illusion. In fact, they will fall down the wide tracks if there is a problem during the shoot.

Photo on board is not the only product looks dangerous couple. They said “they will try to prepare the photos to look great” whenever they find something that looks “a bit daring”. “The focus of what we want to do is to make photos visually appealing,” says Demyttenaere, and if a photo seems a bit risky, that’s the reward.

Demyttenaere and Hocke set up a process to stay safe even in bolder photo shoots. Although the photos of the Belgian couple seem natural, they have to really plan carefully for each photo. As for where the scene was taken, they consulted Pinterest, Instagram and magazines to find interesting places. After choosing a location, the couple arranged a time to take photos.

It is very important to study the right time and conditions for taking pictures. “In Brazil, where we hang ourselves on the rock, the Sun shines straight in the face if you go there in the morning. So you have to come in the afternoon,” Hocke said of the photo taken on Pedra by Telegrafo in Brazil. . This photo looks as if Demyttenaere and Hocke can fall on the beach, but the actual cliff is only a meter above the ground.

Demyttenaere explained, in many photo shoots, the condition did not meet the requirement in the first place, they had to go back a second time to shoot. This photo was taken on a bridge in Jaipur (India) and needs to be taken at sunrise. The bridge became crowded during the day, so the couple had to take photos at dawn to avoid the crowds. Demyttenaere said she always went barefoot during the shoots, because the grip was better and made her fall less often.

“The third point is having the right lens,” Hocke said of the arrangement to create artistic photos during the shoot. “Normally, when you want the image to have a wide background, you need to use a wide-angle lens. That means you can take a close-up picture but still have the effect of looking far away and covering a lot of pulses. This is especially useful when trying to do images with optical illusions. “

The famous travel blogger pair also thinks that taking lots of photos is essential. Having lots of photos increases your likelihood of getting a photo worth sharing. They make sure there are many different photos to choose from even if not in control of the photography. The angle and way of taking pictures are equally important. Because other people cannot know exactly what they want, the couple prefers to take selfies and most of their photos are taken with a tripod.

Some criticized the dangerous pictures of Demyttenaere and Hocke, but that didn’t stop the adventurous couple from taking bold photos. “For us, creating photos like this is an art form. We want to create a certain feeling or emotion for our followers and that’s part of the work we do,” Demyttenaere said.
