A good tip is to use glasses, this will prevent you from going out with a frown if the sun hit your face, and they can be also a good excuse to do something with one of your hands.

Editing idea:

The important thing to get an aesthetic photo is that nobody ruins your background. If there is something or someone that slipped in your photo, use the “remover” feature to remove any unwanted objects.

Combine this tool with the “blur” effect to get a blurred background effect and the rainbow filter to add light and beach colors.

And don’t forget to try the tattoo stickers to make yourself look incredible, too.

5. Back shot on the boat

If you go to the beach and can enjoy a boat trip, you can’t waste that opportunity!

Sit facing the horizon, with your back to the camera, turning your head slightly towards your shoulder. Just remember to get your back straight and your arms in a comfortable position or out of the shot.

Try that the sea and the sky occupy relatively the same portion of space in the photo.

To make your photo look aesthetic, try the different sky filters with which you can modify the sky. You can replace it with a rainbow sky to make it look like a sunny day. Or get creative and try with fantastic sky with some sea animals like dolphins and whales swim through the skies.

6. Photo with your friends

If you go to the beach with your friends or with your family, you can take fun aesthetic photos.

Editing idea 1: Mermaid tails

An incredible idea for a super cool photo with your friends is to wear mermaid tails!

Lie down on the beach in bikini sunbathing with the sea in the background. Cross the legs and raise them up pointing to the sky so you can change them into beautiful mermaid tails. You can use stickers or draw them yourself.

Idea 2: Remover to remove the passenger + Filter

Take a photo of you walking together along the beach with the sea in the background. Walk normally and don’t look at the camera, try to look at each other or look at the sand.

To make the photo perfect, use the “remover” tool to remove people that appear accidentally in your photo. Add a filter that gives it color and brightness.

Idea 3: Use travel-themed stickers
