Beach Photography Tips
Being on the beach is all about fun, so make sure you capture the enjoyment. Get your friends or family to run on the sand; set the mode dial to M (Manual mode) and use a shutter speed of at least 1/500th of a second to freeze the movement. Use a relatively small or medium aperture (f/8-f/16) for a deeper DOF (depth of field). Set the lens focus mode to AF (Autofocus) and select continuous focusing (AI Servo AF Canon/AF-C Nikon) mode so that the lens can constantly maintain its focus on the moving subjects. Remember to protect your camera and lens from possible sand being kicked in your direction; always use a clear UV filter to protect the lens and electrical tape around the area where the lens fits onto the camera body.

Devoted parents can make for some of the most diligent photographers. Open any family album and you will most probably find a well-documented upbringing of a child or group of siblings. It’s what doting parents do, you know. Izabela Urbaniak is no exception, as she has been recording for posterity the activities of her children as they frolic outdoors in the countryside each summer.
While splashes of color and texture can stimulate the mind in a myriad of ways, sometime visual drama can come from the complete opposite. This was the creative conundrum that confronted Guido Argentini while searching for an original approach during a 1995 Miami photo shoot. The result of that was quite unorthodox, as he coated his female models with silver make-up, creating graceful metallic figures.
