Seeing First Light At The Ocean
One of my favorite things to do when in Ocean City is to spend daybreak down by the ocean. I usually end up at the pier because it is scenic, but anywhere would really do. I love the calming sounds of the water coming in as the first rays of light show up on the horizon. The fact that when the sun does start to come up gives you amazing photos is an added bonus.
Like A Painting
By slowing the shutter down a bit you can really make your photo look like a painting. Smoothing out the waves adds a dreamy effect that I love to do. The waves were really crashing in that day, but here they look quite peaceful. This is a good trick to really mellow out your ocean photos.
