Huntington Beach Photographers: 3 Great Orange County Session Locations
Orange County photographers are always on the look-out for new locations. This articles looks a three of the best in Southern California.
The first terrific beach location is Woods Cove in Laguna Beach. This beach is relatively unknown - which means it is usually not that crowded. There are also a number of terrific backdrops - stairwells and steps built into the rocks.
In addition this is a great place to bring the kids and let them play. This natural setting allows for the taking of great candids.
Really the only disadvantages of shooting a session here is that parking is limited and when the tide comes in there is not much room on the beach. Make sure you go to this beach at low tide.
The second location is Victoria Beach - also located in Laguna Beach. This location sports a beautiful castle like structure. This beach also is not crowded and has some beautiful rocks. There are some locations with quite a bit of vegetation which allows a photographer to get variety of different shots. Also, the beach is large and is seldom overcrowded.
The only disadvantage to this location is that in some of your shots you will get some houses in the background. The houses are nice and some people like the houses there. Others would rather not have them there and if that is the case you should not shoot at this location - unless you enjoy doing a lot of Photoshop work!
The third location is the William R. Mason Regional Park in Irvine. This park is a fun place to photograph a family. There is a beautiful lake with swans and geese in the background - great for little children candids.
Really the only drawback to this location is you have to pay to get in. The last time in went the price was $5.
Orange County has a number of terrific locations available. The three above are some of the best.
