Everyone likes beaches and they have a romantic appeal. If there is a beach nearby your place you must try to visit for great romantic photos. If you don’t live in a coastal town or city then head to a good place like parks and other open spaces.
The best time to visit would be early morning or late afternoon before dark when the sun is low and you get beautiful golden light. Make the best use of natural lighting and take the photo from various angles.
4. Create a Flat Lay of your gifts
