The beach can be tons of fun. In fact, my son loves everything about the beach. I literally grew up in the water, swimming nearly year round for 14 years being in the water was my life; so I'm super happy that my son loves it as well.
I love taking photos at the beach. Photographing at the beach can be fun and challenging at the same time, especially when you're shooting into the sun. For this photo we were enjoying some time at La Jolla's Scripps Pier in San Diego, CA, and I was using a Canon 5D Mark III body with a Canon 50mm f1.4 lens. The camera was set with a shutter speed of 1/160, a f-stop of f/22, and an ISO 160. I knew going in there would be some heavy shadows, but I really wanted to get sun as it came across the water. I did the initial post-production in Lightroom, and then added some texture and the logo in Photoshop CS6.
Here are some of the other photos from yesterday's adventure to the beach.
What are some of your favorite places to take photos?
