Poring Over the Picture
A lot of people fear taking their cameras to the beach because they don't want them damaged with sand and sea air. That's a pity because there are some wonderful shots to be had, especially if you go early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Here's a tip, though. Before you head down to the water, pick a single lens and don't take it off. This will keep sand out of the sensor. Also, use a neck strap to prevent dropping the camera and if you must set it down, put it in a camera bag or some other container.
