Seascape photography is a very interesting genre of photography. Its not only about the typical postcard image of the beach, the blue sky and the palm trees but there are a lot more to it. Today it is considered to be a separate genre of photography and no more a subset of landscape photography. Your knowledge of the tide timings, weather conditions, the location, the lighting conditions, intelligent usage of shutter speed, aperture and ISO can offer you flexibility to imagine out of the box and implement them in your frame once you are clear with the concepts. If your camera allows you to choose different shutter speeds, aperture and ISO, then you are in for this workshop. This is unique and results are magical. In this workshop, mentor will demonstrate the various creative ways how you can use your camera's settings to create some amazing seascape images. One compulsory requirement for seascape photography is a sturdy tripod. Combination of right white balance and proper settings will help to understand the deep perspective of image.
