Two secrets for great photos.

Happy dog at the beach

Want to take some great photo’s? Everyone does. Over the past couple of years I’ve taken a surprising amount of fabulous pictures. Here’s how.

  1. Buy a good camera and lens. I have a Sony NEX7. Most of my beach photos are shot with a 55-210mm zoom lens. You can pick up a used NEX5 or NEX3 and the lens for less than $500. Worth every penny.
  2. Here’s the big secret. The day I took this picture, I took 918 pictures. My camera takes up to 10 photos per second. I just hold down the button and start shooting. Chances are, with 20 pictures of the same thing, one of them will be just right. And pictures are free. I have a backup memory card, but have never come close to filling up the primary.

Here are some other shots from the beach. Most of it is luck.
