Tip #12: Shoot it Low

Baru Beach - Dominical, Costa Rica
Canon 5D MarkII + 50mm f1.4 @ f11 + Variable Neutral Density Filter
Shot from my Belly using "Live View" to frame the image

While life at 5 foot 9 inches might be typical for the average American male, it's not the only point of view. My nature photo tip of the day... "be the ant." Spread your your tripod legs, take out that center column, and get real low. 
Tip #12: Change your perspective, get on your belly, and shoot from the ground.
A cautionary message to you wannabe beach photog's... immersion in your photography  takes on a whole new meaning when you're shooting near the ocean!
