If you live in San Diego and you’re a photographer, it won’t be long before someone asks you to take their picture at the beach. San Diego offers great opportunities for beach portraiture. Some photographers make their living from photographing families, kids, and couples on the rocky shorelines of La Jolla Cove and Wind-and-Sea Beach, or the open sands of Coronado or Torrey Pines State Beach. With seventy miles of coastline, San Diego County has lots of beaches to choose from.
I run photography workshops on some of San Diego’s beaches for enthusiasts of digital photography. It is a fun place to be and a fun place to do photography. In this short article, I would like to share some tips on successful beach photography.
