3 Steps for Better Seascape Photos

The sea is constantly changing, and that means you always have opportunities to create unique images just about whenever you are ready to pull out your camera. If you would like you create better seascape photos, check out this fantastic video tutorial that features an experienced photographer sharing three steps that will help you improve your shots. 

Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this great video tutorial gives you three steps that will help you take better seascape images. The beauty of seascape photography is that the water is so dynamic, meaning new opportunities are presenting themselves almost constantly. As such, be sure you bring a wide variety of equipment and ideas with you. ND filters and a wide angle lens are great for creating smooth, tranquil shots that include some context around the water. On the other hand, a longer focal length and a fast shutter speed will allow you to capture the drama of a single wave breaking as the wind blows surf off of it. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
