One of the issues with a public beach is just that, it’s public! The long stretch of beach is in the background of your portrait, and so isn’t everyone and everything that wanders down to the water’s edge.
The ability to remove those objects has been a strong seller for my services and one that many past clients count on when they hire my services.
It’s impossible to ask everyone to clear out, though I have been known to yell in the direction of those truly trying to photo bomb your portrait. I myself have sauntered down a dune then walk along the water's edge. How should I know if I’m in the background? My skills in photoshop can be put to good use.
Retouching is included with your purchase of paper prints and wall portraits.
