Please, just please don’t do this!

It's finally summer and we wouldn't want to commit mistakes that make us look bad in beach photos! We are aiming to have cool photos to show off in our social networks, so we might as well avoid doing these photography fails!

Here are 15 mistakes that make us look bad in beach photos:

1. Doing disruptive poses

It makes you look stiff and unwelcoming.

8. Not facing the camera

Let's face it, back photos are boring.

9. Taking photos from under

Will emphasize your chin and will make it appear that you have no neck.

10. Bad posture

Bad posture is bad, even in other photos not taken in the beach.

11. Using the same angles repeatedly

Pretty self explanatory, right?

12. Knees facing the camera

Gives you a shorter silhouette and hides the neck.

13. Not following the “Rule of thirds”

via adobe.com

This photo is almost perfect, except that it is too centered.

14. Making use of bad lighting

This photo should be better if they captured it in the well lighted part of the beach.

15. Focusing on the wrong part of the image
