Christ the Redeemer statue is one of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s top attractions, and everyone who visits it wants to leave with a good photo they’ll cherish forever. Taking pics with this imposing statue can be tough, but here’s a couple of ideas you can use for inspiration.

Copy the Pose

One of the most popular ways to take photos with this statue is copying its pose by outstretching both of your arms. Whether you’re posing with your face or your back facing the camera, you can’t go wrong with this shot, and it’s truly a timeless classic.

Good Spot

One of the biggest mistakes people make while taking a photos here is standing directly in front of the statue and thinking it’s the best spot to take the picture. Get a little bit more creative with your shots, and step away from the statue while looking for a perfect angle.

No Full-Body Shots

Christ the Redeemer is one of Rio’s busiest attractions and that makes it difficult to take full-body shot images. If you want the entire statue and no other people in your frame, you’ll only be able to fit your face and upper body in, so find a way to work with that.
