Seashore Picture #1 – Whitehaven Seashore, Australia

Persistently named as one of the stunning seashores on the earth, Whitehaven Seashore, particularly this little slice on the northern tip known as Hill Inlet, is a stunner. A photogenic marvel that appears stunning from the ocean, from the mountaineering trails and from above, as seen right here.

With the bride and groom on board, we did a loop above Hill Inlet and the tide was splendid for capturing some aerial photographs to showcase the sand patterns and colors of the Coral Sea.

Endurance, a zoom lens and mendacity very, very nonetheless paid off when photographing this little hermit crab in Vanuatu. The seashores on the southern shores of Efate Island are full of these cuties because the scurry beneath the palm bushes on this tropical paradise.

I’d been watching them for some time earlier than getting my digicam out as I needed to see simply how shy they had been. It seems, very shy. The seashore I used to be on didn’t see many individuals in any respect, removed from the vacationer centre of Port Vila, these little crabs hid of their shells the second any noise or vibration was felt.

I arrange the digicam settings, positioned myself near a crab I’d been watching and lay on my abdomen with the digicam resting on the sand and centered on the shell. I turned the digicam to shoot in silent mode so the main target beep didn’t each the crab and waited. Inside a couple of minutes it slowly got here out, however a hen overhead scared him again inside.

It took simply over 20 minutes for him to remain out lengthy sufficient for me to snap this fast picture and I used a large aperture to make sure he was sharp and the environment had been blurred.

Seashore Picture #3 – Apollo Bay, Victoria

Stretching for 3km, Apollo Bay sees rolling hills attain the coast in a good looking panorama only a few hours drive from Melbourne, Australia. Visiting at sundown supplied the proper likelihood to sit down on the jap finish of the seashore, discover the rockpools and look forward to the sky to erupt in a night present of color.

The clouds had been aligning fantastically for a magic sky on the night I captured this picture and as nightfall hit, the pinks sat completely above the wave line.

I actually take pleasure in utilizing the motion of the water to create lengthy exposures. When taking pictures with the OM SYSTEM OM-1 digicam, I can go for the Stay ND Filter which captures motion inside the body and produces gorgeous lengthy publicity outcomes just like the picture beneath. The soundness of the digicam means I can seize this with out a tripod, standing nonetheless for simply 2.5seconds to attain this shot.

Digital camera Settings – ISO 800, 2.5sec, f/16, 40mm (40-150mm f2.8 M.Zuiko lens)

Utilizing the motion of the panorama or topic, paired with your individual motion of the digicam. You may get inventive as you want as a result of there’s no strict guidelines, it’s meant to be a inventive use of motion to showcase the scene nonetheless you would like.

I really like utilizing the coastal and swell traces to provide photographs with a panning impact. Setting the digicam up and slowing the shutter pace, I then flip shortly from left to proper to blur the scene and spotlight any seen traces inside it.

This picture was captured utilizing the Olympus E-M1 MKIII and 40-150mm f2.8 M.Zuiko professional lens. It was taken at dawn, (I’ve a complete love/hate relationship with sunrises!) as the gorgeous morning glow rose above the ocean. Because the waves rolled in, I timed the shot for when waves had been piled towards the horizon. Take a peek at my information to ICM Pictures right here for all of the inventive ideas and settings.

Seashore Picture #5 – Dyrhólaey, Iceland

On the wild south coast of Iceland, this spot is certainly one of my favorite for epic waves crashing into cliffs and rocks. Throughout this specific go to, the waves had been crashing, birds had been hovering above and the late afternoon daylight was shining via the rock arch.

It was so spectacular that I nonetheless don’t suppose this photograph does the second justice however I’m so proud of the picture and the way it captured the magic, even in a small approach.

When photographing a contrasting scene with darkish and lightweight areas, it’s necessary to correctly expose your shot to keep away from ending up with a picture that’s too darkish or too vivid. You wish to guarantee all seen highlights and shadows may be edited it want be and the colors are true to the scene. I like to do that by exposing for the world simply the place the sunshine and darkish spots meet and captured this shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X, 40-150mm f2.8 professional lens plus the MC-20 2x teleconverter.

Underwater beach photography

Seashore Picture #6 – Aitutaki, Cook dinner Islands

In case you had been to step into your screensaver of ‘paradise’, that is in all probability the place you’d find yourself. One Foot Island inside the Aitutaki Lagoon is pure idyllic island perfection.

Palms line a pure white sandy seashore that rolls into among the clearest water you’ll ever see. The TV Sequence Survivor was filmed right here one season and because of its distant location, there’s only one dwelling on the island used for cooking up a feast for visiting day trippers.

Floating within the heat water of Aitutaki Lagoon is so stress-free, but additionally inspiring as a photographer obsessive about split-level underwater photographs. I really like captured above and beneath the water degree and there’s actually no higher place to check this out than a lagoon with calm water and gorgeous surroundings.

To seize each landscapes above and beneath sharply, it is advisable to shoot with an aperture of f/11 and above. In case you’re aiming for a pointy shot above, however slightly blurry beneath (like my instance right here), you possibly can go for an aperture of f2.8 which is able to produce a good looking bokeh.

Tilting your digicam barely upward as you hover beneath the floor will assist to even out the composition of the 2 areas. Tilting down means the world below the water floor might be extra obvious in your picture, and tilting too far up will imply the panorama above gained’t be seen.

I exploit the Olympus EP-14 underwater housing for my E-M1 MKII digicam and usually pair it with the 7-14mm f2.8 M.Zuiko professional lens.

Seashore Picture #7 – Geraldton, Western Australia

When taking seashore pictures, capturing close by topics or associated sights may be a good way to take pictures of one thing apart from sand. This lighthouse is so placing with it’s crimson and white stripes and I used the seashore grass as a foreground function to seize a extra distinctive angle.

Incorporating textures or extra parts inside your foreground helps to compose a extra inventive shot. You may get low to the bottom and use the sand itself, or like I’ve finished right here, go for a large aperture and place the topic to create depth of subject.

Goal to shoot via topics which is able to blur the foreground with bokeh, create a pop of color and nonetheless allow your essential topic to stay in focus.

This little cutie was creating balls of sand because the solar went down on Fraser Island. I used to be creating content material for a shopper, specializing in panorama photographs and aerials with my drone, however couldn’t resist stopping to take a portrait of this soldier crab.

Not like the Hermit Crab picture earlier, this crabby wasn’t bothered by my presence. As an alternative, he paused slightly, then continued his busy job of rolling sand balls.

To seize this shot I positioned myself and the digicam low to the bottom to boost his shadow and I really like the consequence and the way it makes him look so large and powerful with the sand ball below his leg.
