Beach Photography with On Camera Flash

Take a look at Shoot Review 003 where Pierce Brunson describes the techniques that went into this practice session with people on the beach at sunset. Golden Hour photography skills are a great way to express creativity and enhance the background of your images.

Beach Sunset Photography Shooting

Check out Shoot Review 002 where I describe the settings I use for a sunset photo shoot and the light challenges that occur as the sun goes down.  These tips are simple for anyone to follow you just need to practice up on the skill of off camera strobe (flash) photography.  Feel free to ask photography related questions on our YouTube channel of this video.

How Did You Shoot That?

Among the many questions I get as a photographer is “how did you shoot that?” After novice photographers realize that it may not be the camera but their skill they immediately start asking skill based questions.  Since I have received this question at least 6 times this month I decided to start a YouTube video session called “Shoot Review.”  Shoot Review will be a video where I describe a recent shoot and how I achieved those results.  A few things before we start.

  1. I rarely edit in Photoshop but when I do I will let you know.
  2. I have trained myself (via many videos and books) to shoot well in camera.
  3. I spend more time shooting than editing.
  4. I will tell you exactly the conditions of all my shoots and how I achieved the results.

Being a better photographer is just practice and getting the results you want.  People hire me for my style of photography so I focus on improving my skill and process. I rarely worry about the results beyond the shoot because by then it is too late.

If you want some tips from a photographer that is constantly working to improve then follow our YouTube channel and Facebook page under “Modern Photography Group.”  Shoot Review 001 “My Camera Gear” is out now.

Tell me what you think and we have many more to come on a weekly basis.
