Seascape Photography Cheats, Tips & Tricks!

Code Canyon

In this tutorial, I’m down at a lovely location looking for decent coastal details and seascape compositions. I found a couple of shots that should work out well.

In this video I reveal a few useful photo tips that I use when looking for seascape shots – PLUS there’s a little cheat I use!

The first one is to make sure you arrive at your location early. I’m at this photography location well before sunset. There’s plenty of time to scout out the best shot(s) – I can check and compare which different angles and shots might be the best.

Another tip is to carry a compass – it’s always a good idea to check the information on what the angle of degrees the sun will be positioned.

Watch the video to learn more.

Enjoy the training,

    Safety tip: Know about incoming and outgoing tide times! I've seen too many people get knocked off their feet onto sharp rocks 🙂

    I was thinking this was a new video until that spot for the shot came in and I knew about the bucket trick before it was mentioned plus the use of the 5D2 still a nice video, this must be on one of my DVDs I have of yours

    is it worth shelling out 700 quid on some lee filters on my D7100, I have a passion for long exposures and creating blurred water effects but am fed up with filters that don't fit my lens, I was looking at the pro filter kit on your website for my needs, but is it worth forking out foras they are worth more than the camera it self?

    What lens does Karl recommend for landscape shots 16-35mm f2.8 or f4?

    What will you do knowing exactly where the sun would set eventually? Isn't the position of Sun at the time of taking the photograph more important?

    Prime example of why i love my 6D for landscape shots…remote trigger and liveview with my smartphone.

    Hey, Karl. Thanks for the informative video. Glad you didn't drop the polarizer this time.

    Why do almost all pros use cable releases instead of remote ones? (Holding them right in front of the camera…) … Or wifi-based solutions. That would be even less mechanical contact with the camera and you don't need to wind the cable around the tripod to keep it from swinging around. (And then retrieve it everytime you want to take another shot…). Am I missing some obvious downside to wireless solutions?

    Just out of curiosity how did you know it would set at 256 degrees? that's very handy, thanks

    Great video Karl, I love your studio work but have a preference for your outdoor landscape more so. Thanks for the advice, one thing I'd like to ask, I'm on a tight budget, where can I get a good polarizer? £145 quid for me is a huge cost. Any help would appreciated.

    I've watched a number of your video.s now Karl where your down at water's edge and getting soaked….in case you aren't aware, you can buy water proof footware that go all the way up to your knees and beyond..They have a variety of names, like gum boots, water boots, waders, etc…..might be an idea to invest in a pair…..lol.. Sorry couldn't resist bring that to your attention…

    Is the polarizing filter a must? I'm trying to get into landscape photography and going to invest in the LEE filters system soon. However, these filters are not cheap and my decision is to purchase the ND filter "Little Stopper" along with the filter holder. I see that the 105mm lee circular polarizer is $300. That's the cost of the ND+holder.

    Great result but a Nikon D810 would have given those 2-3 stops of DR to just get the sky and the sun right.

    Superb! Very informative. Could you please do a video on colour spaces and soft proofing? I'm interested in learning how you manage to accurately manage colour when displaying for print or screen. Thankyou.
