Exploring Oslo – Picture perfect places.

Summer and free time present the perfect opportunity to embark on a city trip, capture amazing photos, and discover new places.

Our Norwegian instax colleagues have shared their experiences in Oslo, offering inspiration (maybe) for (y)our next vacation 😉 Let’s explore some “Picture Perfect” locations around the city that are ideal for framing memories and creating an aesthetic appeal. Whether you reside in Oslo or elsewhere, these places can serve as inspiration to find similar gems in your hometown.

Botanical Garden (Botanisk Hage): Amidst colorful flowers, lush trees, and abundant greenery, the Botanical Garden at Grünerløkka is a photographer’s paradise. The garden not only offers a variety of beautiful flowers to capture but also provides stunning backdrops for your photoshoots. Immerse yourself in the diverse collection of flowers and discover numerous photo-worthy objects. With its pastel colors and romantic round shape, the instax mini 11 fits seamlessly into this serene environment. For a larger format, opt for the instax SQUARE SQ1 to encompass even more floral beauty within the frame.

The Opera House (Operahuset): No visit to Oslo is complete without exploring the renowned Opera House in the city center. This architectural marvel not only offers breathtaking views but also serves as a stylish background for group shots. Climb to the roof for a panoramic view of Oslo, a captivating subject for your photographs. To ensure you capture all the beauty, we recommend using the Link WIDE printer, which produces photos in the largest format offered by instax. The Link WIDE printer also enables you to seamlessly print photos taken on your phone once you return home, allowing you to relive the memories in tangible form.

Getting the most out of your Photos: Once you have a collection of stunning photos from your city trip, it’s time to make the most of them. Here are some fantastic ideas for preserving your memories:

Scrapbook
