Seascapes can be a great alternative to standard landscape images and a way to use the motion and energy of the water to offset stationary objects and create more dynamic visuals for your viewers. This excellent video tutorial will show you a landscape photographer’s experience from his point of view as he shoots seascapes.
Coming to you from Michael Shainblum, this fantastic video tutorial follows his point of view as he shoots seascapes. I have always enjoyed landscapes with bodies of water; whether you use a long shutter speed to create motion in the water or a standard shutter speed to capture its complexity and violence, it can provide a lot of energy to a shot, and it often provides a great complement in the lower third of the photograph to the sky in the upper third, allowing you to naturally funnel the viewer’s attention to any sort of structures or interesting features in the middle third. If you are looking for something different, try heading out to the coast.
Check out the video above for Shainblum’s experience.
