Beach engagement photography is a great way to capture the perfect moment, and for those of us who have never been to the beach, the process is easy and the results are worth every penny.
The most common questions we get from beach photographers are the same questions you ask yourself when you’re starting out as a photographer: How do I capture the beach in my photos?
How do you make sure your photos look good?
Here are 10 tips to make the most of the time you spend at the beach.1.
The beach is a huge place2.
It’s hot and humid3.
It gets really dark in the middle of the day4.
It is a bit of a challenge to capture something in your shots because it depends on the lighting and the amount of sun you’re looking at4.
The sun doesn’t always set, so don’t be afraid to use a flash to give your photos a nice flashy glow5.
Your best bet for finding the right moment is to use the “time” slider, which will show you the time it will take you to get from one beach to another.
For example, if you’re in the water for an hour, the slider will tell you how long it will have taken you to arrive at the destination.
It will also tell you if you’ll be able to go to the next beach that day.6.
Don’t use a tripod, because you won’t be able see everything7.
Keep it simple and don’t go overboard8.
Try to capture everything in the first couple of minutes9.

You can always adjust the exposure settings later if the sun is setting10.
If you want to go for the big picture, try using a flash instead of a camera and a tripod to get your shots perfect11.
