Successful Steps to Seascape Photography

Successful Steps to Seascape Photography

Secret Dusk1) Time it right. Dawn and dusk are the best times to shoot. For dawn shots get to the location at least 45 minutes before sunrise. At dusk, keep shooting after the sun has set – until all traces of colour has faded away.

2) Watch the weather. You need moody conditions to shoot seascapes. Check xcweather.co.uk and metcheck.com to check the forecast.

3) Blur the sea. For waves crashing against the shore, use between 0.5 and 2 seconds. At dawn or dusk, use exposures of 20-30 seconds so the sea records as a gentle mist. Use a 10-stop filter and open the shutter for several minutes.

4) Convert to B&W. Seascapes shot in stormy weather often look dramatic in monochrome.

5) Return to the same locations in different weather conditions, when the tide is high and low and throughout the year to witness its many moods.
