Good framing and AFFORDABLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY is critical to a photo shoot. As with normal landscape photography, incorporating interesting foreground details, such as rocks, a pier, or even reflections in the water, allows for contrast.

Don’t be afraid to get your feet wet or dirty. Sometimes a shot taken from an unusual vantage point or angle can be more interesting. To best capture the view in front of you, we recommend using a wide-angle lens such as the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED or AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED. A short focal length will help convey the majesty and splendor of the seascape.

There are many ways to capture the sea. Using different shutter speeds, you can change the texture of the water in the pictures. For example, using a fast shutter speed such as 1/500 s allows you to “stop” motion and capture the energy of the sea. Use a slow shutter speed such as 1/2s to convey a sense of movement and show the flow of water. Using a shutter speed of 1 second or slower can achieve the effect of “white water” or fog. In this way, you can achieve a sense of peace and serenity in the image.

When shooting a coastline, you want to keep all the details in focus. Using an aperture of f/8 or less will help to achieve sharpness in both the foreground and background.

If you are photographing a seascape at slow shutter speeds or after sunset, be sure to mount your camera on a tripod. Sharpness is of the utmost importance, and a tripod can provide stability and reduce the chance of blurry shots. When setting up a tripod on the shore, make sure it is firmly planted on the ground so that waves do not move or tip it over. After taking a picture, be sure to check for any unintentional blurring.


Filters can not only protect the front element of the lens, but also improve the quality of captured images.

There are two types of filters most commonly used in land and sea photography: Gradient Neutral Density (GND) and Neutral Density (ND) filters. GND filters are typically used in high contrast environments, such as when the sky is much brighter than the foreground. They help eliminate light differences and provide a balanced exposure. ND filters are used to reduce the amount of light entering the camera, allowing for longer exposure times. It also makes it possible to use large apertures to achieve shallower depth of field.

There is no one way to capture seascapes. Experiment with the composition of the frame, settings and just catch the moment.
