TAKE BETTER SUNSET & SUNRISE PHOTOS IN DSLRs

 

TAKE BETTER SUNSET & SUNRISE PHOTOS

Nature Photography is one of the most encouraging way to start up and explore about the techniques of photography. Shooting Sunrise and Sunset are challenging as well as time consuming. We need patience and dedication during those early morning and late evening hours. We also need to spot the right place and frame to have a perfect shot. On a technical way, you may do certain adjustments to shoot Sunrise and Sunset.

 

1: Switch your camera to Program mode by turning the mode dial to ‘P’.

2: Press the exposure compensation button. This is normally labelled with a plus and minus symbol – check your manual for details.

3: Set the compensation to a negative value to deliberately underexpose the shot – a setting of -1 is a good starting point. Some DSLRs require that the compensation button be held as you make this adjustment.

4: If the result is still too bright, choose a bigger number, like -1.5 or even -2. If the result is too dark, choose a smaller number like -0.5 or -0.3.

5: After taking your photo, set the compensation back to zero or all your photos will be darker than normal. Finally if desired, set the mode dial back to Auto.

 

Expert tip

If you’d also like to include a person in front of the sunrise or sunset, just popup your built-in flash to illuminate them. If the person is too dark, either increase your flash compensation setting (see your manual) or move a little closer to them. Alternatively, use an external flashgun for more power.
