Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on at Eastbourne beach, East Sussex on the south coast of England, Eastbourne is situated on the English Channel .
Time
We travelled for a good one and a half hours to get to this location we went there to get the sunset and to capture the incoming tide with long exposures ( this on was 1/5 seconds) as this image shows. I set the tripod up by those wooden groynes ready for the waves to start hitting it I took a number of them and this was one of the best purely because the warm coloured sky as the sun went below the horizon this was complimented by blue/green colours of the sea all this was set off by the white contrasting foam of the wave hitting the groynes and the beach
Lighting
My tip would be to all who have not yet had a go at this sort of thing, taking shots at this time of day is that to will get even lighting this means when the sun goes down you have not got any blown out highlights or any real dark shadow areas, no uneven forms of light with the sky brighter then the ground this usually means there is one or two stops greater exposure for the sky then it would be for the ground areas so you don't have to worry about getting half of the image to dark or to light, taken an average reading usually of the horizon this will take care of the entire image.
Equipment
If you are taking long exposure more that 1/30th of a second you will need a tripod and a cable release this will ensure that no unwanted movement or blur will occur in the image I used for this image Sony 550, lens 18-55mm
Inspiration
We went to this location solely to get this type of imagery, water or tide movements can only be achieved by going the coast, here in England you can only get Groynes ( Break waters) like this at the coast the perspectives that can be had with them really does add the extra dimension to an image and of course waves at high tide hitting them also can not be got anywhere else so this was the inspiration for me to go all that way, my advise would be do your homework about your chosen location first, does the tide come in fully when is the sunset and so on you don't what to travel long distances for nothing
Editing
Yes I use Photoshop CS6 and Nic software which is a plug-in for Photoshop. Most of my images I use the basic levels this just enhances the contrasts between light and dark as with this image those wooden groynes gives the black areas while the incoming waves gives the highlights and the rest are mid tones.
In my camera bag
Normally I just have one camera and two lenses, a 16-50mm wide angle and a 75-200mm telephoto
Feedback
As I said previously my advise would be do your homework about your chosen location first , does the tide come in fully up the beach what time is the sunset or sunrise, is there any foreground interest for the image you don't what to travel long distances for nothing, Equipment need is DSLR camera wide angle lens anything from 10mm to 55mm, a cable release that will work with you camera model or make you will find this is the camera manual and the most important of all a sturdy tripod don't buy a flimsy one because this has the habit of moving in winds. Exposures. With sunrise ( before the sun comes up ) and sunsets ( After the sun goes down ) you will in the main even lighting you have not got any blown out highlights or any real dark shadow areas, no uneven forms of light with the sky brighter then the ground this usually means there is one or two stops greater exposure for the sky then it would be for the ground areas so you don't have to worry about getting half of the image to dark or to light, take an average reading usually of the horizon this will take care of the entire image, the longer you have to wait for the sunrise of after the sunset the longer the exposure will be
