Since 2012, Moscow-based Murad Osmann and his wife Nataly have been filling their Instagram account with gorgeous travel photos.
What makes them stand out from the pack is their classic pose that numerous wannabes have tried to knock off: Nataly pulling Murad forward in front of gorgeous backgrounds.
In a new video about their #FollowMeTo project on YouTube, the Osmanns take fans behind the scenes to see how they shoot some of their gorgeous pictures at locations like the Taj Mahal and luxury hotels around the world.
The video was shot a year ago last April on a trip to Delhi and Udaipur in India, and shows how hard it is to get those famous #FollowMeTo pictures just right.
At one point in the video, Murad hopes that no one will steal his camera. Later on, Nataly says people want them to go away, “as usual.”
Turns out, the photos involve a lot of set up, scouting locations, test shots, and braving crowded tourist sites in full hair and makeup.
Then there’s the actual posing itself. Nataly always dresses up in a costume and Murad has her pose and hold onto his hand while he leans back and tries to capture the perfect shot. It’s not easy.
Still, being able to travel to these beautiful locations must be fantastic for the photography-loving couple. And the fact that Nataly is a professional model is just icing on the cake.
Plus, it leads to some incredible shots:
