#[[Image:Strides out 2812.jpg|200px|right]]  Take a look at your surroundings and look for a focal point. While the seaside as a whole is beautiful to the naked eye when you're actually on the beach, it is less interesting as a photograph because the viewer sees only a wide, open space featuring blue sky, blue sea, and yellow sand - a fairly predictable scene. To provide something on which the eye immediately comes to rest within a photograph, find a "focal point" - this is the art of focusing on something out of the ordinary to bring the beach shot to life:

#*[[Image:Berck plage 3872.jpg|220px|right]]  Find the focal point of interest - a shoe,  a beach umbrella, a fish and chip wrapper, your child's toes, prints across the sand, a sandcastle, etc. Good focal points are often brightly coloured, or vary in hue from the other colours in the picture.

# [[Image:Fanabe beach sunset 4 5584.jpg|220px|right]] Avoid putting the horizon in the centre. Centering the horizon can give the viewer a sensation that the photo has been sliced in half, which can be disorienting, as long, unbroken horizons contain little of interest in a photo. Instead, break down the image into thirds (the "rule of thirds"), both horizontally and vertically, to create nine equal parts to your image. Keep the horizon square to the framing of your shot, in order to avoid a sloping effect.

# [[Image:Singapore's Massacre Beach – Punggol 7150.jpg|200px|right]] Frame your picture. Look around you. Ask yourself what points of interest you can include in the photo. For example, are there any rocks, trees, beach houses, piers, etc., that you can use to add a natural frame to the picture? If so, use them. For example, framing a sea shot through trees can be particularly effective if you have a focal point out at sea, such as a boat.

Don't just shoot straight on, mix the angles up a bit. Aim for something kooky, funky and interesting. Get down low to photograph children and their beach activities, stand up high to take a tree, or lie down under a pier.

#[[Image:Somevibrantcolouronbeach.png|220px|right]] Use colour to break up the blues and yellows of a beach scene. Blue, more blue, perhaps some yellow: beaches aren't the most imaginative places colour-wise. This makes it important to capitalise on any splashes of colour. Vibrant colours will really stand out, and make your photo look doubly attractive.

#[[Image:Beached 7480.jpg|200px|right]] Choose the best times of day to take beach photos. When the sun's riding high it might be a nice time for sunbathing, but it's the worst time of day for decent photos as the light is too strong and bright. The best times of day for beach photos are at the beginning and end of the day, especially around sunrise and sunset. The sun resting on the horizon looks brilliant, and it's hard not to take a decent snap at these times. As an added bonus, you will have less people on the beach at these times of day.

*High heels aren't always the best choice. Only wear them if you can walk comfortably in them; otherwise, you could twist your ankle! And remember not to wear them to school unless there is an event going on in which you'd prefer to wear them.
*Don't suck up to people who are 'supposedly popular'. It will only degrade your confidence, you'll get laughed at, and half the the supposed 'popular people' aren't even cool anyway.

*Consider what you want your headband to add to your look before choosing one. For example, if you want one that will hold your hair back all day, you'll want a sturdier style, possibly with ridges on the underside to grip your hair. If you just want to add a decorative touch to your look, a thin, delicate, embellished headband can work.
