Today, I’m really excited to share a few tips to help you this summer when you hit the beach in search of the perfect shot! If you’re interested in learning those tips keep on reading.
1- The first thing to do is find something of interest which will act as the main feature in your beach photo. Here are some ideas:
2- Look for a composition which will lead the viewer’s eye into the scene.
3-When shooting a beach photo which includes the sea and sand, remember the “rule of thirds” and don’t place the horizon in the center of the frame. Also, make sure your horizon is straight.
4- Try shooting around sunrise and sunset, for a softer light quality with less contrast. These times of day also produce some fantastic colors, with long shadows that bring out the beach’s texture.
5- Look for Reflections!
6- A great way of adding interest to your beach photos is to include objects in the foreground.
7- To make your beach photos stand out, try searching for some vivid colors
8- My final tip is one that I find really important in landscape photography, and that is to turn around to see what’s behind you. Often, we’re so focused on the beautiful scene in front of us that we forget to look at what’s behind us, and you could be missing out on some amazing shots.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a like and to follow my blog (by email).
