Learn By Doing – Finding the perfect Sunset!

Assignment #18 – Finding the perfect Sunset!

Finding the perfect sunset isn’t as easy as it seems.  First the weather has to be on your side. Second is learning how to expose properly. Our weather didn’t cooperate this week lots of  rainy cloudy nights.  We did manage to make it up the hill to take some sunset shots. We went way to early…  By the time we left both kiddos were done with sunsets! As we waited Cade read his book and Kat and I took pictures of him reading his book.  This picture was taken at 1/50 sec Aperture priority using f/5. Not quite sunset yet…

This next picture was a little closer to sunset – taken using aperture priority f/8 shutter speed 1/125 sec

Now how do you get a perfect sunset? There are many ways to shot a sunset, but this was a great tutorial I found from PhotoClassPro. He said the simple trick  is to under-expose. Set your camera at f/5.6 take a picture and then underexpose. Give it a try! I read this tutorial after I took my picture so I will wait for another clear night and try again using his technique!


Are you ready to find the perfect sunset? You can post at the bottom of this post or on DigitalCamFan FaceBook wall. If you have questions about “Learn By Doing” Please refer to the guideline page. If you have no questions post away!
