Going on a beach vacation is a great chance for great photos to be taken. No, I am not talking about some repetitive and cliche snapshots of a shoreline while various persons are on the beach. Those are boring – like ironing on a sunny day while watching a commercial for some expensive vacuum cleaner. If you take a couple of minutes to read the next few lines, you will learn how to click the best possible beach vacation photos.
If you just snap your camera, the result would most probably be inadequate – like Tom Cruise standing next to a taller woman. First tip is to find some detail of interest. Focus on the detail, just don’t let it slip. It can be rather simple really. Some footprints in the sand, a seagull on water, you standing in your bikini in Dubai against a palm tree or your kid standing in shallow waters can make some interesting photos. Timing is of the essence also. Starting and ending of a day might make an interesting change. Colors could be specific at this time, and it shouldn’t be missed. You must have your priorities set. Either you will have a great early morning photos, or you can party hard at night. To have it both ways is not that realistic. If you want your pictures to be unorthodox, you will have to work for it. I know that a stormy day is not a good day for the beach, but it is a great opportunity if you want to take some interesting snapshots. Waves hitting the rocks, for instance, can be a great sight on a photo, just like a dark cloud in the gray sky is as well. If you are lucky, you can catch a beautiful rainbow on camera on days like these.
Some cool filters could make a major difference on a photo. UV filters can remove ultra violet rays and at the same time they protect your lens. Even better are polarizing filters that can make a great picture of a good one in the same way Photoshop can make a good-looking girl drop dead gorgeous. Polarizing filters are boosting contrasts and reducing reflections. Apart from that it is useful to put your flash to the test in the occasions where you need some of the shadows from sunglasses or hats to be removed with ease. Spot metering can help you nullify the problems which include exposure. You just need to decide which part of the photo should be priority number one. If you like black and white photos, you can see how cool a specific snapshot is and change it that way. With all this information, get your bikini online, pack your bags, head out for your vacation and have the time of your life!
