20 creative ideas for your Salar de Uyuni pictures

South America is a playground for the amateur surreal photographer in you.

The one spot where you can experiment with all your crazy ideas is Salar de Uyuni! It is so surreal, it would be a shame to leave this place without experimenting a bit. For more useful info about organizing your trip, read 8 Things You Should Know Before Your Bolivia Salt Flats Tour!

Now, you have the place, the camera, I still think you should know it’s not that easy to take those awesome shots. I was there and it took me and my group more than one hour to be satisfied with our pictures.

    Are there any special trips for flamingo pictures?i heard November is the best month. Suggestions?

      I dont think there are special flamingo photo tours there. As i said, the tours are very standartise and you will find the same route everywhere.
      I have visited in January and there were flamingos there

    Hi! What type of camera did you and other people use while on the salt flats?

    • Yulia 17.06.2019 at 15:25 - Reply

      Hi, Alyssa!
      While I do not know what type of cameras other travelers use, I can tell you that I use an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.
      If you want to take the best pictures at the salt flats, I’m sure that a quality camera (DSLR or mirrorless) will be just fine! 🙂
      I hope this helps!
