    09 Take pictures from a boat


    Photo Ideas: take pictures from a boat

    When shooting at sea you’re likely to encounter a few technical difficulties. Firstly, if the sun is shining, glare from the sea and boat will make exposure tricky. You may need to over-expose the scene by a stop to avoid bright, reflective seas looking too dark.

    You should also pack a polarising filter to reduce glare from the sea and prevent any reflections bouncing back from the boat from appearing in your shots. Set your camera to a fast shutter speed of 1/2000 sec or above to compensate for the movement of the boat.

    Needless to say, it’s much easier to shoot when the sea is calm. Finally, remember to keep your neck strap securely attached; if you drop your camera overboard it will sink in an instant!

    Get started today…
    * Protect your camera from seawater damage by encasing it in a protective sleeve, and have 
a lens cloth to hand to remove water drops.
    * Head to Weymouth and Portland, where there are opportunities to take sailing shots throughout the summer.
