Using the Weather for Perfect Photos at the Beach
We love Pensacola Beach in all weather! Sometimes the best time to hit the beach is when the weather is less than conventionally ideal. Rain, fog, storms or just clouds can be beautiful. We get so many sunny, clear days that it is special when the we get perfect but foggy weather. The waves take on a different hue and the light is diffused enough to make pictures and filming easy.
Everyone says the best time to photograph on the beach is the "golden hour," when the light is diffused, soft and golden. The light is just right to allow subjects to avoid squinting in the bright sun and can often face directly into the light. You just can't get this during the day.
This hour before sunset and and hour after sunrise, isn't the only perfect time though. When the weather isn't cooperating, try taking a picture! Even the wind can add dramatic effect to a still image!
And you aren't limited to still photography either. Videos can be especially dramatic when the weather is too! Capture a storm at the beach, as long as there is no lightning, for a special keepsake. Or just watch and share the video below.
Check out our video during an especially foggy morning. No sun, plenty of mist. And drama too!
