Fun ideas for beach photography

For spring break and summertime for many people means at least ONE trip to the beach, right? 

This post with Fun & Creative Ideas for Beach Pictures will help guide your picture taking while you are on vacation. It’s fun to do something different than just the standard “smile at the camera” shot. I photographed a few of the below images, while others I found around the web and was inspired by.

Tips for taking beach pictures:

  1. Don’t change your lens! If you get grains of sand inside of your SLR camera, it could get ruined. Be very careful
  2. Backlight is beautiful, but tricky. Make sure it doesn’t wash out your subject.
  3. Silhouettes are so FUN! Expose for the sky, then bring it down to your subjects.
  4. Wear bright colors so your subjects won’t be washed out.
