1 What­ever the weather

Don’t be a fair-weather pho­tog­ra­pher – head out when it’s stormy, too! A mix­ture of clouds with high winds will give your long-ex­po­sure shots added in­ter­est in the heav­ens, as the tur­bu­lence in the sky turns into wispy streaks, mim­ick­ing the move­ment of the wa­ter.

2 Time of day

If you head to the beach at high noon with clear skies, you’re go­ing to get un­flat­ter­ing over­head light, with high con­trast be­tween high­lights and shadow. Shoot­ing dur­ing the golden hour (30 min­utes ei­ther side of sun­set) means beau­ti­ful warm tones in the sky and on the wa­ter.
