Next, the image below is what I shoot for a client, their family and their pets to live together on the beach side. I hope that i can shoot at the beach environment into the composition, but the afternoon sun is very suitable for shooting. Fortunately, I followed in the locker room after the beach side found a shaded area, and then I use reflector portion of the sun on the beach reflected on my subject to shoot.
