How to Shoot Beach Street Photography

The beach: one of the best places to shoot on the beach!

  1. Use small camera like RICOH GR III. The bigger the camera you use, the more suspicious and weird you will look.
  2. Shoot kids in the water, playing around! Aim for dynamism. Remember the famous photograph that Henri Cartier Bresson was inspired from Martin Munkácsi (the kids playing in the water).
  3. Photograph kids on the pier or other scenarios

“Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika” by Martin Munkácsi

“Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika” by Martin Munkácsi. The photograph that inspired Henri Cartier Bresson that indeed, photography could be a true art form!

The quote from HCB:

“For me, this photograph was the spark that ignited my enthusiasm. I suddenly realized that, by capturing the moment, photography was able to achieve eternity. It is the only photograph to have influenced me. This picture has such intensity, such joie de vivre, such a sense of wonder that it continues to fascinate me to this day.”Henri Cartier Bresson
