Since the weather is warming and travel to the beaches is about to begin, I figured I would start sharing more helpful tip on shooting seascapes.
The sea is a place of wonder, peacefulness, drama and a variety of moods. One of the most exciting things about nature and landscape photography is the challenges of the changes in our world, especially with seascapes and our inability to control what will happen when we are shooting a seascape. For a nature and landscape photographer, you can produces a variety of work that showcases all of the stunning beauties of the sea and the emotions all from the same location; this is especially helpful when learning the art of photography. When shooting a seascape everything in the scene can be taken in consideration when you are composing your photograph; people, rocks, the sands, the sky and most importantly the light. The light will help you convey the mood of the scene you are about to photograph.
If you are serious about seascape photography, you need patience and watch how the sea changes in front of your eyes. Be on the lookout for changes in the weather and the tides; take note of how the light is changing these elements. Light has three basic qualities: intensity, direction and color; all of these qualities are affected by the time of the day. When the features match your vision of the scene or story you want to communicate in your photography start shooting.
