Home Forums Let’s Talk Photography Shooting at the Beach Reply To: Shooting at the Beach


Thank you cameraclicker. I know that I need open shade, but there is none at this beach. I can’t use a reflector, diffuser, etc. because I’m shooting by myself.  And the biggest problem is that one of the family members is a baby and if I wait for the “golden hour” it would be too late in the day…past the baby’s bedtime.

I think the only solution is to shoot with their backs to the sun.

I have shot at the beach before, but never for a family portrait like this. This makes me nervous!

Thanks again for the advise.
