As more beach photos appear on social media, we noticed that there are various ways to take photos at the beach. It’s not the usual “sit on the sand” or stand in the water” type of vibe. People really take the time to think of poses that will confidently show off their swimsuits and/or their chosen assets.
If you need some ideas for your upcoming trip, we’ve gathered posts from celebrities and influencers who are often seen at the beach. Now it’s time to up your Instagram game!
Laureen Uy joked on Instagram that kneeling on the sand will now be her signature beach pose. The trick here is to keep your back straight while you smize to the camera.
We’re calling this pose the “Lazy Lounge” because Bela Padilla looks like she’s just chilling on the sand. But really, she’s sitting in a way to show off her bikini.
If you’re wearing something flowy, it’s best to use it to your advantage. Kimi Juan made her beach outfit the center of attention by letting the wind do its thing.
Lovi Poe is showing everyone how she works her angles in the middle of the beach. Copy this by turning your back to the camera, bend one of your legs and point your toe, and look over your shoulder.
Make your photos look more fun with props. Julia Barretto used a surfboard for a playful feel, and in another photo, she posed while drinking fresh buko juice.
Techinically, this isn’t a pose, but action shots at the beach adds another dimension to your feed. Take some notes with Andi Eigenman’s many surfing photos.
Speaking of action shots, here’s Maxene Magalona doing a jump shot. It’s the universal pose of the carefree and those who don’t have any stress to think about at that moment.
Don’t know how to handle your tangled beach hair? Then use it to your advantage while taking a photo. Maggie Wilson lets the wind blow her hair or she parts it to the side during any pose for that sultry look.
