6 Hit the coast

Go beyond tra­di­tional beach images next time you’re be­side the sea­side

NPhoto - - Feature -

For many of us, sum­mer days re­mind us of child­hoods spent roam­ing the beach un­der a hot sky. A wide-an­gle lens is the go-to choice for pho­tograph­ing coastal scenes, and even a kit lens can be put to good use here. Don’t feel lim­ited to these ex­pan­sive views of sand and sea, though. Why not use a tele­photo lens to hone in on foot­prints in the sand, or boats bob­bing about on a sparkling ocean? The light qual­ity can in­di­cate to a viewer where and when an im­age was shot, so you don’t al­ways have to in­clude ob­vi­ous vis­ual clues.

Cliff-sides are strik­ing on a sunny day, when fo­liage con­trasts with the sea beyond
