Top photography tips for your beach holiday

 Top photography tips for your beach holiday

The beach vacation is perfect for any seasons we enjoy the open sea, fresh air, cool blue waters, sunbath, and games, camping etc. It is great to go on a family beach vacation – the kids have fun, the adults get to relax under the sun. So being on the beach is all about fun, so make sure you capture the enjoyment. Get your friends or family to run on the sand and click the awesome photos and lovely videos.
Below we'll take a look at some quick tips to help you capture some of your best images ever while traveling!

Capture Enjoyment
Capture your happiest time on the beach. Get your friends or family to run on the sand; set the mode dial to M (Manual mode) and use a shutter speed of at least 1/500th of a second to freeze the movement.  When taking a shot look for a point of interest or focal point that will give those looking at your photo a place for their eye to rest. Perhaps it’s a pattern in the sand, a set of footprints, the crashing of waves over a rock, a life saver’s tower etc. Also look for the little things that tell the story of going to the beach like shoes at the water's edge, sand castles, sunglasses, sunscreen lotion etc. Sometimes these can make wonderful little feature shots to break up your vacation album.

Capture the Action
Take multiple photo shoots by making funny faces and funny actions.

For multiple shots use continuous (burst) shooting mode and hold down the shutter button as long as desired. For these types of photos Shutter lag that create a delay in the image capturing process, you can also use burst mode to increase the chance of getting beach shoot. While clicking photograph always remembers that if the ocean horizon is in the background it needs to look straight.

Zoom the lovely actions and capture them too.

Avoid Harsh Shadows
Always avoid the harsh photo shoots. But if the sun is brighter use fill-in flash which will bounce some light into the subject’s faces, especially the eyes to counteract the shadows. Zoom the closer areas using the telephoto lens, which will cut down the amount of shadow. To bounce the brighter light uses the circular reflector, but if you don’t have reflector you can use towel also.

Shoot in Black & White
Black and white photos are always awesome. A polarizing filter and a red filter will bring out the contrast in the image as well as reducing flare. Turn on the AV (Aperture Priority) mode of your camera and take the awesome black and white pictures.
