1 Moody light

Sun­rise and sun­set pro­vide a won­der­ful qual­ity of light, but as our open­ing shot shows, some­times over­cast light can re­sult in more dra­matic images.

2 Solid tri­pod

Your Nikon must re­main rock steady while tak­ing a long ex­po­sure of the wa­ter, as the slight­est move­ment will ruin the shot, so a sturdy tri­pod is vi­tal.

3 Wa­ter’s edge

Get down to the wa­ter’s edge. You don’t have to shoot on soft sandy beaches; un­du­lat­ing rocks or a craggy coast­lines work just as well (or bet­ter).

4 Good back­drop

Find some­thing that adds in­ter­est to the back­ground. Snow-clad moun­tains here pro­vided the per­fect back­drop to this wa­tery seas­cape.
