A Beginner's Guide to Long Exposure Seascapes

One of the most popular types of landscape shots is the long exposure of moving water. They are a great way to explore your creativity and expand your photographic palette into images that are not possible with more basic equipment. This great video tutorial will show you how to shoot long exposures of seascapes or other moving water.

Coming to you from First Man Photography, this awesome video tutorial will show you how to take long-exposure images of seascapes. This has always been a popular technique, as it reduces violent, chaotic water to elegant, smooth trails and is something that is not visible to the naked eye. This can be used to wide creative effect. Many photographers create ultra-long exposures with something like a rock or lighthouse somewhere in the water to create an ethereal, minimalistic image, while others create medium-length long exposures, which can reveal beautiful patterns in the flow of water that might not be visible otherwise. All it takes to get started is a neutral density filter. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
