Seascape Photography Tip by Brett Michaud
On this rather dark, overcast day, I wanted to capture the stormy feel of the ocean by freezing the motion in the water and showing the size of the sea. It required a fast shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. The use of f/11 provided an adequate depth of field.
The low ambient light levels coupled with the mid-range aperture setting and fast shutter speed meant I needed to use ISO 320 to achieve a good exposure.
It’s important to remember that when photographing ocean waves, it is always wise to underexpose your image by a ½ to 1 full stop, so the crests of the waves are not blown out.
