    Classic Travel Photography Mistakes: 04 Underexposed beach shots

    Final surf photography advice from our professional photographer: check the histogram

    The bright conditions encountered on a beach can fool your camera into underexposing the subject.

    It also makes it hard to see the image on the LCD screen, so it can’t be relied upon when you’re assessing exposure.

    You need to activate the histogram view and make sure that the image isn’t badly underexposed, dialling in extra exposure using the compensation facility as necessary.

    A burst of light from your flash is also useful for filling in any harsh shadows.
