The desire to go on adventures will show in the passion of the photo. Maybe it's a new part of the city, a rustic barn on the other side of town or an old forgotten lighthouse but the whole point is to capture an environment outside of your comfort zone. This will relate well with followers as it will capture their attention with it being a different setting.
People like to experience different things, and some can only do this through imagery. You are creating a story through the picture for the viewer.
Having confidence in taking the photos and using them must be on par. When posting a picture or using it for advertising, the viewer will see the photo and create an image in their mind before reading the caption. A picture speaks a thousand words and confidence should be one of the words your picture articulates. The viewer should feel your confidence as they view your picture, this not only gives your picture an extra boost but inspires confidence in them as well, thus inspiriting your audience to engage with your brand more.
One of the best ways to appeal to your target audience is by tapping into their emotions. This is done by providing photos they can relate too. This will help you grab an audience's attention and also increase your brand awareness.
This touches well with confidence, as pictures can change people's moods and emotions.
