Sorry if the title was a little strong, I could not fit my whole question.
I'm going to St Maarten in a few weeks and plan to bring the DSLR. I was just wondering if anyone had tips or suggestions since this is my first time making plane porn. Thanks  silly

Depending on how long you'll be there, i have heard that Saturdays are good.

Bring plenty of memorycards for the camera, buy yourself a Carib in the beachbar and wear lots of sunscreen.

and most importantly.... Enjoy yourself!

Get the "beach shot" that's made the place so popular, but also try to find something new in your shots.
It's a fantastic island, have fun!

Right now at Maho there is a about a 3 foot drop in the sand. Its not the big flat beach seen in a lot of pics in the DB. I suggest standing closer to the road than the water, as framing will be difficult if you want to include the famous beach scene. Oh and this time of year I suggest standing on the north side of the beach, closer to the hotels and what not.


I would love to fly a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong!
