Sheen Watkins recently wrote brilliantly about the way photographers see the world; the way we feel about our subjects — animate and inanimate; the way we identify and interpret beauty; what motivates us and keeps us passionate about the craft of image making.

The sea is also a locale marked by ever changing mood and drama; it is, thus, no wonder why photographers are so enraptured by the sea. Photographing seascapes is, of course, comparable to landscape and cityscape photography in its treatment of the subject, but it also shares similarities with event photography or street photography insofar as the need to be patient and observant so that you capture the perfect moment. The following tips will help you with that.
