Never leave shore without your camera this boating season, you never know when the perfect moment will arise! Have fun everyone!
1) Shoot at Dusk and Dawn
The best time to capture an outdoor photograph is at either dusk or dawn, the half an hour windows of time before sunrise and sunset.Experts prefer this time range since it creates unique warm light and shadows not found during any other time of the day.
2) Capture with Meaning
Never take a picture blindly, always try to create a foreground, middle-ground or background in the image you are capturing. If you’re out on your Monterey Boat, the water, sky and clouds and surrounding coast line will be your background. When you capture the image, try to line everything up in relation to one another.
3) The Horizon
Instead of making the horizon the center of attention in your photograph, emphasize another element in the photo such as the sky, water, or coastline.
4) Show How Powerful Your Boat Is
Let everyone see how powerful your Monterey Boat is by displaying it next to an object of contrasting size.
5) Choose a Filter
Since Instagram’s arrival filters have become more and more prominent in photographs. Filters can enhance the colors and tones of the water, sky and other elements in your photograph. A filter may be the perfect solution when lighting choices are limited.
