The Challenge of Photographing Seascapes at Night

Seascapes are a popular choice for a wide range of photographers, but they are normally shot when the sun is still high in the sky or right around sunrise or sunset. Of course, you can shoot them at night, however, and the results can be quite entrancing. This great video follows a photographer as he shoots seascapes in the middle of the night, showing the challenges that arise, how to move past them, and the awesome result.

Coming to you from Gary Gough, this neat video follows him as he shoots seascapes at night. I have to say that Gough's result is one of my favorite images I have seen in a while. The colors are naturally quite complementary, while the smoothness of both the surface of the water and the night sky make it look almost otherworldly. It is certainly a different take on a very common sort of image that adds a bit of freshness to the look, and I know I am going to take a night to head out to my local lake at some point soon. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Gough.
