Types of Photos

First, let’s look at a few of the various types of photos you might take.

  • Candids. Luckily, in the day of smart phones and digital cameras, you don’t have to worry about wasting film or waiting for photos to be developed. So snap away, and catch every moment of your friends and family enjoying the water, playing on the beach, and exploring. Use your camera’s burst mode to catch a series of images that you can later edit.
  • Sunsets. The BVI has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
  • Underwater. The beauty of the BVI extends underwater. Capture the colorful marine life with an underwater camera.
  • Action. Kids waterskiing? Dad kiteboarding? Use a GoPro or ask your captain to deploy a drone to record all the fun.
  • Foods and drinks. Before digging in to that delicious dish or fancy tropical drink, snap a photo. You’ll have so many amazing meals and cocktails that you will want to remember each one. Try different angles and lighting and make sure the background is not cluttered. Take a lot of shots since you can always delete the ones you don’t want later.
  • Landscape or seascape. Take pictures of the hilly and rugged terrain of the islands you visit.
  • Portraits. First, determine the sun’s position. The time of day and position of the sun will make an impact on the mood of your photo. The golden hour, which is approximately an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset, casts a diffused glow that is very flattering to the subject.

The Baths, Virgin Gorda

The Baths is an amazing location for photos. This collection of massive granite boulders, some as large as 40-feet in diameter, soft white sand beaches, and hidden grottoes are a photographer’s dream. Capture the natural beauty on its own or record the fun you and your friends have splashing, swimming, and snorkeling. The backdrop formed by the boulders, tunnels, arches, and tidal pools all make for spectacular photos. Look for hidden rooms, shafts of light, and interesting rock formations. It’s really difficult to take a bad picture in this beautiful setting.
