Motion Of The Ocean

Spending time away from work and the normal distractions of life allows me the time to improve my photography skills. I had always wanted to achieve that wispy water feel and capture the motion of the ocean in one of my pictures. One afternoon after an epic day’s surfing in Bali, I went for a mission with the camera.

I found a deserted beach and some rocks, which seemed an ideal location to start playing about with capturing the water movement. Experimenting with shutter speed to get the right feel I was going for, and managed to get some results I was happy with.

A shot I got earlier that afternoon.

Quite often leaving your shutter speed open to capture movement in the light hours over exposes your image, so remember to put your aperture high and iso down to reduce the amount of light getting in or a neutral density filter really helps. This image taken without any filters but I added a graduated filter in post process to reduce the exposure in the sky.
