Family Beach Portraits.
One common problem with landscape beach images is that while they might capture a beautiful scene they actually have no point interest and can because of this and be somewhat empty and boring. Whenever taking a shot find a point of interest or center point that will give those taking a look at your photos a place for their eyesight to rest. Perhaps a pattern in the sand, a set of footprints, the crashing of waves over an ordinary rock, a lone seashell etc. Also look for the little things that tell the story of going to the beach like flip flops near the waters edge, sand castles, beach hats, sunscreen lotion and so forth The start and end of times can present the best opportunities for shooting at the sea.
For beginners, there will be fewer people there at that time of day but also you'll find that with the sun shimmering on an angle that you often get better effects of shadows and colors - particularly in the evening when the sunshine becomes quite warm and golden. This is a terrific time to capture amazing Family Beach Portraits here in Miami. Another time issue is that Miami Beach can really become more active on those days and that everyone prevents it because of nasty weather. Stormy seas, frightening and dramatic clouds and wind slowing life saver red flags and trees over call all make for atmospheric shots. If you're shooting people at the sea as a portrait and it is bright you'll find that they will generally have shadows on their face (often because of things they're wearing like glasses and hats). Turn on your flash and pressure it to fire when shooting in these situations and you'll find the shadows are gone plus your real subject is well captured. This is particularly important when photographing into the sun when without a flash (you might simply find that your subject has become a silhouette).
If your camera gives you some degree of control over how strong a flash to fire you might want to test out this also as firing a full strength can leave your subjects looking beaten up and artificial. If your Miami Beach subjects do look overexposed and you simply can't decrease the flash strength try moving back just a little from your subject and using your zoom to get a adjust the framing. This will decrease the impact of the flash. Experiment and enjoy the beauty of capturing the moment or Give us a call and we'll be happy to discuss your Miami Beach Family Beach Portrait Booking.
