Camera settings for capturing sea waves
Mode of operation:I prefer to set camera in either manual or aperture priority mode. One should be careful about light when choosing aperture and shutter speed settings with manual mode. If the combo needs to be fixed, exposure compensation can be useful. Aperture mode avoids most of the jargon as choosing shutter speed, it automatically fixes shutter speed which is good enough.
Shutter speedShutter speed must be high to freeze the moments of splashing. Speed faster that 1/1000 s is sufficient. Sometimes the light is too strong and shutter speed reaches to 1/3200 or more. This is the reason why morning time around 8 AM to 9 AM is preferable, specially considering light conditions.
