Waves Crashing

    Newer Older

    It's very difficult to stop waves. You'll need a fast shutter speed. If you don't have a fast lens then stopping down a notch or third, or increasing the ISO will help too.
    This image was originally quite bland with washed out waves and dark rocks but a little dodging and burning with a soft layer worked wonders!

    This was taken in Dunworley, Co. Cork yesterday.

      I dont know about fast shutter speed, but you sure as hell would need fast legs to get you Ass out of the way

      That's true. There's a slipway further down the beach and I was about 10 metres up the slope when I saw a huge surge of water.
      I had to run to avoid it! It scared me and reminded me to be a little more careful!

      Hey lad, a long exposition could be nice too ;-)

      That's a really great photo of waves crashing! Try running it through auto-levels, and process it a little to bring out the detail. You'll be surprised at how it gets even better!

      Thanks, I try this. If it's working properly, I'll upload it next month when I'll got some quota.

      I'm interested to read how you capture your pictures. I'm very much a novice and have a lot to learn! Thanks for the tips.
