Other beach tips!

  • * I love the ‘then’ and ‘now’ shots…. get them when you can…

  • *Change the angles. I also love the artsy feel of the angles…try tilting your camera to get a totally different feel:

  • * BRING your good camera  to the beach. I know a lot of people don’t like to take their nice camera to the sandy beach but if you keep it protected  it will be OK. I wrap mine in a small clean towel when I am not using it and always put it right back in a quilted zipper bag  in-between shots. So glad to have my photos!
  • * Take lots of shots and try to tell the story of what you did and ‘felt’ with your camera.
  • * Keep the light to  your back. Make sure that your subject has light on their face or they will be too dark.
