Have you ever looked at an influencer’s seemingly perfect beach photo and wondered how they captured such a flattering angle? Or better yet, who took the photo for them and how?
You don’t need a professional photographer when you’re traveling with a boyfriend. At least not these ones. They’ve put their heart and soul into it and even risked their lives for these photos.
The Rollerskates Are For Extra Photoshoot Mobility
Step one of taking a great picture is gaining fluidity in your movement so that you can keep snapping pictures from every possible angle until something sticks. Even if the background is just a street under construction and the monument isn’t in the frame at all.
The Boyfriend Beach Ripple Effect
You’re not seeing triple. This was just a perfectly captured moment of three boyfriends right beside each other having to take “candid” beach photos of their girlfriends.
It almost looks like the further in the background they go, the more effort they’re putting in.
The “Hold On, Let Me Think Of A Good Pose” Photo
The dream of being a travel influencer has no age limit, okay? This woman exhibits some impressive flexibility that needs to be acknowledged. Not to mention that she came looking like a star with her big fur coat, leather gloves, and oversized sunglasses. This is her moment.
Props Are Always Encouraged
Framing can work magic! If you’re looking to fool all your friends that you were on a plane, a toilet seat makes for a great plane window substitute. Just please make sure that it’s thoroughly cleansed first.
You Don’t Even Need To Travel Very Far
To impress with travel pictures, sometimes all you need is to travel 2 feet to the backyard, your daughter’s umbrella, your dad to hold it, a kiddie pool, and your boyfriend to get in it with you. Then get creative!
It’s All About The Right Angle
That photographer’s back is so flat you could place a full of glass of water on it and not a single drop would spill over. If that’s not dedication, then I don’t know what is!
If The Photographer’s Feeling Themselves, They Deserve A Picture Too
At first glance, this just looks like another pretty girl in front of a pretty beach sunset having her picture taken. Until you realize the boyfriend is actually just taking pictures of himself and she’s posing for nothing.
If That’s Not Love, Then What Is?
Not only is this man risking his life to capture this picture, but the way he is holding himself up is incredibly impressive. Can you imagine the strength required to hold yourself up horizontally against gravity with just one arm like that? Now THAT deserves a photo.
This Is How Chronic Back Pain Begins
We get it, the building is tall and he needs to lower the camera to be able to get more of it in the frame. However, his back is for sure going to be sore later. Hopefully he gets rewarded in back massages.
It’s Called “Art,” Look It Up
Now this is impressive. This photo just proves that you really don’t need a fancy landmark behind you to do the work. Just go to the nearest grocery store, get as close as possible to some flowers, and work the editing magic later.
Kanye West Himself Is Not Exempt
You know how they say celebrities are just like us? This photo is the perfect reminder. Poor Kanye West looks exhausted, but we all know that Kim K’s perfect Instagram feed doesn’t come easy.
When In Doubt, Just Contort Yourself And See What Happens
Whether this angle actually does capture a better photo is not the point. Getting in the weirdest contortionist position to snap the photo will both impress the person you’re taking it for and make you look like a pro.
Life On The Line, Literally
Is this really necessary? It would make a lot more sense if it wasn’t just an ordinary-looking street or if we could see if what’s behind the girl is worthy of risking your head in oncoming traffic.
Didn’t Even Know They Sold Tripods That Long…
This is like an upgraded selfie stick, except it goes on for miles vertically. How do you even tell what the camera is pointing at, at that point? Almost guaranteed, 99% of the pictures were of just the water.
Leonardo DiCaprio Needs Some Instagram Love Too
It’s not fair that Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend is the only one to get all the attention just because she is a model for a living. If anything, that makes her trustworthy enough to know how to capture a picture or two. Although, he doesn’t look very impressed…
No Virus Is Getting In The Way Of This Shoot
Together, with love, these two can overcome anything, and no virus is coming between them and a curated Instagram feed. On the bright side, a virus outbreak means a very empty square that’s usually filled with tourists. When are you ever going to get that photo opportunity again?
It Takes A Whole Village Sometimes
There’s a lot going on here. From the man underneath the board ensuring the model doesn’t float away, to the man hanging by some kind of rope who has another man behind him, making sure he doesn’t fall in.
“Just Trust Me, I Saw This On Instagram Somewhere”
There was recently a trend of a couple who took a series of travel pictures where all you could see was the girl leading her boyfriend by the hand. Kudos for this girl for trying to recreate it and to her boyfriend for being such a good sport about it.
“Ok On 3 I’m Going To Pretend I Didn’t Know I Told You To Take A Picture”
Candid photos often turn out to be the best photos. But you know what turns out even better? Planned candid photos. This allows you to time just perfectly the way your hair will float in the wind while you smile big.
She Deserved That One
This guy has a great sense of humor and honestly does a great job of recreating this famous sexy beach pose. All they need is a side-by-side picture to see who did it better.
