30. The non-techie tips to amazing sunrise (or sunset) photos on the beach

Get your camera phone ready for the list of tips I have that don’t involve a long instruction guide. All you need is this article and the video below!

What you need to remember before you start:

  • Know what type of beach it is. Will the sun be there for sunrise (east / southeast beach) or sunset (west / southwest).
  • Know what sunrise and sunset time means for that beach. Sunrise, when early, has little to no people on it. The same could be true if sunset is later, around dinner time. Know ebb and flow of the people to that beach.
  • Check the weather. Overcast is a no go. Partly cloudy or no clouds is perfect.

I outline the non-techie tips in this short and subtitled video! Enjoy! ~Tara Rai
