As this Instagram account Boyfriends of Instagram shows, behind every girlfriend's photo on a boardwalk or doing yoga on the beach, there's a boyfriend there taking the picture. It's easy to laugh at everyone involved here, especially because of the ridiculous poses the girls make and the way guys contort themselves to get the shot. BUT, in the end, it's guys doing something nice and indulgent for their girlfriends, which is a pretty sweet thing. But it's still okay to laugh. Some of these are completely ridiculous.

"Can you get any lower? Get lower!"

The hand-holding shot. The biggest cliche since tourists "held up" the Tower of Pisa.

Hope the waves are calm...

Quiet. She's "sleeping."

He got on the ground for THIS?

Notice how none of these shots seem to allow the dude to just stand and hold a camera. There's so much squatting, lying, and reaching involved.

See? A squat AND a kneel...

The hand thing again...UGH. (Still kinda sweet, but...UGH)

A very funny comment from the pic's source: "I hope they do fifteen minutes surf rental for Instagram pics :D" If they don't, they should definitely start!

Laying down, in the water, inverted. This is something he'll definitely bring up the next time they fight.

Poor guy probably can't go any lower.

EQUALITY! The girl lies down on the ground this time.

I thought the better angle was always from above. I guess not...

Lots of "candid" "action" shots that are staged to within an inch of their life.

I guess his girlfriend is an ant or something. Whatever. Hope they're happy!

Oh, you got a Ferrari? That's great. You're still on the hook for the Instagram pics.

Did he have to bury her in sand, too?

The squat...

via: Bored Panda

She's already like eight feet above you. Does she really need you to squat further? I don't understand photography.

via: Bored Panda

Twist...then lean.

via: Bored Panda

Kneel again...

via: Bored Panda

Tickle her stomach. Do it.

via: Bored Panda

He's gonna be in the shot. Then they're gonna get in a fight.

via: Bored Panda

He's dressed like a photography ninja.

via: Bored Panda

"Well hello! I had no idea that my picture was going to be taken as I twirled towards the camera I didn't know was there!"

via: Bored Panda

"Get a picture of me texting. Don't ask why. Just do it."

via: Bored Panda

One of the more mundane photos. This one just seems like a regular pic.

via: Bored Panda

Whoa. Carrying that giant pole to the beach is the real act of kindness here.

via: Bored Panda

Eh. Whatever.
