Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunsets…photographing sunsets tutorial

This weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge suggestion is Sunset!  I am an inexperienced photographer and have trouble capturing sunsets and sunrises at their best.  I decided to look up a YouTube tutorial for a few pointers on the subject.  There were several available.  The one I chose is 10 minutes in length.  I know that’s really long…especially for a busy blogger.  However, I found the information on this one to cover all of my questions and was very helpful.  I hope you will as well. 

Do you have a tip for capturing a great sunset?

  1. I tend to be guided by the sunset and surroundings. If the color is intense, I look around for an interesting composition to “frame” the shot.

    • Florida beaches and the coastal skiies give you a beautiful canvas to work with…loved your photos for this challenge. Oh I think I already mentioned that…but definitely worth mentioning again!

  7. Terrific idea… I will look at it especially as we have many gray days of late… I will have to search my files for sunsets as they are absent of late in our shifting weather… :-)
