Instagram posts shape preferences and views on many aspects of life, including our decisions on where and how to vacation. Photos on the social network motivate people to visit certain places, and when they visit them, it turns out that the original is very different from the "picture" on the Internet.

According to a study by Admiral Travel Insurance, 98% of Instagram users have no doubt that photos on the social network reflect reality. At the same time, there are "real" pictures that prove that Instagram greatly embellishes reality.

In fact, the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben are very crowded places with crowds of tourists taking pictures of them.

Nevertheless, if you want to take pictures of them, here are some tips from professionals.

Take pictures of the Taj Mahal from a special place

Photographer Perikshit Rao explains: "The most popular vantage point from which to capture a typical Taj Mahal shot is the elevated platform inside the complex - just behind the marble bench commonly known as Diana's seat.

With the right angle and sunlight, you can also get a reflection of the Taj in the pond. "That said, if you want to take a picture of something else, head across the Yamuna River (behind the Taj Mahal) and choose a position from where you can zoom in on the Taj."

Golden time for Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster

"Often the best time to take beautiful pictures is at sunrise and sunset, so either get up early or stay up late," advises Ben Pape, another professional photographer.

"After sunset, stick around and watch the scene change as dusk falls. About 20 minutes after the sun goes below the horizon, it's the perfect time to take pictures."

According to Sydney-based photographer Ben Williams, "the best lighting during the day is the first 2 hours after sunrise or before sunset."

The Eiffel Tower can be captured in parts

Parisian photographer Brett Walsh recommends: "The exposure is easily adjustable on any type of camera, including smartphones.

"Like many other attractions, the Eiffel Tower is full of intricate and interesting architectural elements."
