Silly Seven | Great to be Eight

Here are some more beach pictures.
Did you take your camera to the beach and try the little tip I shared in my last post?
You should!
Practice practice, and your photography will get better and better!

The blondie is my 7 year old, and her little bestie who is turning 8.  They couldn't be more opposite--in looks and personality.  But it works for them :)

These were taken in Ventura, CA.

Beach Winter

The beach is a great winter location to photograph. We've been going a lot. 

 Here's a few of my favorite from the past few beach days.

Momtographer Tip:
Tilt your camera for a fun little angle (see below photo) especially at the beach where you have such a lateral line running through all your shots (the sky line, the wave lines, and the shore break line all create a very horizontal look, so it's fun to break it up by tilting your camera just a tad).  

I used to be a camera tilt-aholic and I kinda got over it, but I always end up liking the variety.  
Try it some time :)

At the beach, the sun sets early, and the clouds shift so fast over the water that you get a lot of different light and color, giving you lots of different looks in your photos.

Dark and ominous one minute:

 Then light and breezy the next.

The above and below photos were taken within a 10-15 minute time window.  Aren't the mood and vibes of the photos so different, all because of the light?

But of course, people are the best thing to photograph at the beach!

If you are sneaky with your camera, you can always catch people soaking up the beach peace.

So.  Take your camera next time you are headed to the shore.
You'll be happy you did!
