First off, my love is beach photography and city/urban shooting. All photographers have something they love to shoot and both these environments are my jam.
I really just love capturing these environments. I find it easier to bring in the colors I want to showcase compositionally. I love pastels and I truly think this color scheme thrives in a beach or city environment.
One thing about the city, is it offers a Mecca of great architecture and scenery. I love the hustle and bustle and no color casts on faces generally as buildings act as natural reflectors.
Beach the same thing. I generally choose locations with soft even light as beach light can bounce off waves and the sand and most photographers can’t do beach photography well. They most often struggle with overblown highlights. My goal is no hot spots on your face and to capture you in the most beautiful light 🙂 I see it all the time… and it’s my biggest pet peeve in this industry.
So… if you want the BEST out of me…and to highlight yourself in the best light… do a beach or urban session! It makes your skin truly yummy and you really do shine!!
I typically have my spots I love shooting at the Jersey Shore. One of them, is this spot below. I find it truly magical and I’m sure you do, too. I love the colors and the light:)
Hope to see you next year for your beach session!
Happy Shooting, my friends!
