Shooting a coastline is an exciting experience. In this series of videos, outdoor photographer, Doug Gardner, takes you to Washington’s rugged shore for tips on capturing the coastline.

On the rocky coastline, Doug shoots a close-up of a dead log as an abstract in black and white. He stops at a tidal pool to photograph an orange starfish, a green sea anemone, and black mussels, and shows you that color contrast adds intensity to an image. Later, you will learn how to use filters and slow shutter speeds to create a silky, burred effect of the roiling surf.

Walk the beach with professional shooter, Doug Gardner, for tips on photographing the Washington coastline.
