There’s something pretty cool and unique about slow shutter photography, especially when the ocean or nature is involved.

Slowing the shutter speed down means there is a lot more chance of error. It means you probably won’t get the shot you were after. But after 20 goes you might. That’s what makes it so rewarding to me when I finally get the shot.

Most of the time, the photo I end up with when I use a slow shutter speed is nothing like I envisioned. That’s what makes it so exciting as you don’t really know what to expect when you look at the camera screen.

Anyone can pick up a camera and take a photo, but I believe you’ve got to get a bit weird with your photography if you want people to have a good hard look at your photos.
