Sunset photography from around the world
A sunset is beautiful and captivating, we are drawn to the artistic colours and great feeling it brings us. The sun has been setting for millions of years and yet we are still keen to see it and are left breathless every time it happens.
Sunsets have inspired poets and musicians for centuries, whilst painters have tried to recreate the emotion through their works of art. Photographers have been drawn to sunsets because it gives them the opportunity to capture a unique scene that cannot be recreated. The beaming red and orange tones melting in the horizon provide photographers with great opportunities!
Tips to improve sunset photography
When taking photographs of a sunset its important you find the right location. Places that include the sea, rivers or streams are ideal because the tones of the sunset will reflect in to the water and produce stunning results. Locations that have silhouettes will give you something to focus on whilst heavy traffic and polluted areas will give your photograph purple tones as well as red and orange. Take advantage of the scenery around you, practice some test shots before you attempt your first capture of a sunset.
Arrive at your location early, you will be surprised the beautiful scenes and colours that come out when the sun is about to set.
Warning: Do not look directly through your view finder and avoid looking directly at the sun for too long.
