It is hot; the sun shines, so we all have a furious desire for a vacation by the sea! And to immortalize all these good times, what better than to do lots of beach photos? And to succeed, we reveal some small secrets of photographers.
The sun, the beach, the tan, the idleness. We always find the excuse of not wanting to do anything that we justify because we are already doing enough all year long. And yet there are always things that come up every day and interesting to photograph.
On vacation it’s an opportunity to take out your camera, it’s nice, the days in summer are longer, and the photos are great memories. Successful holiday photography is not a difficult challenge if you already have the technique. However, you may be able to improve with this article and my tips.
Vary the Subjects of your Beach photos
To avoid monotonous beach photos, vary the subjects. The sea, its waves, its calm, and its crystalline waters: there are superb landscapes for your photos of the beach. But beware! Make sure the skyline is straight before taking your picture.
And do not forget to be attentive to the composition of your photo. Respect the rule of thirds. Two-thirds for the sky and one-third for the sea, for example (or vice versa). Rather than centering the main subject of your photo, place it to a third on the right or a third on the left.
For beautiful personalized photo books, especially of your children, think of putting yourself at their height. And beware of the background because a beach umbrella stand or picnic bag will not offer an ideal backdrop! Choose a neutral and beautiful background instead.
Natural Beach Pictures
On the beach, a lot of things happen. So stay tuned. Your children play, build sandcastles, ball games get organized, surfers spin on the waves. All these fleeting moments will be the occasion of beautiful photos of the beach, dynamic and alive.
To capture unique moments, try to capture your subject in a natural pose. Do not forget all the natural elements that make up the beaches. Driftwood, shells, footprints on the sand, algae stranded. They can give rise to pretty artistic photos.
Under the Sun exactly or not
As every time we photograph outdoors, the sun is not necessarily our ally. So we arrange to take our beach photos in the morning before 11 am or in the evening after 17h. The light will be softer. If you decide to take beach pictures outside these times, place your subject against the light and use the flashti have the perfect custom photo book.
Protect your Device
Who says beach, sand, water, and heat, of course? So think about protecting your device. Do not put your device on your towel in direct sunlight. Surround it with a cloth and store it in the bottom of your bag. Besides, there are waterproof covers that can even make underwater photos.
All you have to do is to have fun in the days of your beautiful vacation at sea, well deserved!
