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
Just imagine the beauty of this photo if the subject removed her arms from her head.
2. The straight legged photo
A little posing won't hurt
3. Over cropped photos
4. Full frontal photos are the worst
5. Forgetting to twist slightly when posing
6. Photos in weird angles
Because, yes, it's weird.
7. Squeezing your shoulders
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”
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
Could have been really a pretty picture if the subject in focus is the girl.
