Sunset Photography

 
Google Facebook LinkedIn Reddit Twitter
Sunset is the time at which the sun disappears below the horizon in the west. Sunset is often more brightly coloured than sunrise, with shades of red and orange more vibrant. The atmosphere responds to exposure to the sun in a number of ways during daylight hours. In particular, there tends to be more dust in the lower atmosphere at the end of the day than at the beginning.

Sunset images

Sunsets can provide some spectacular images, although these are very popular and so not at all out of the ordinary. Generally speaking, taking a photograph at sunset is fairly safe with regard to the eyes, but taking pictures of the bright sun needs considerable care. On no account should you look at the sun through the camera lens without using a filter as you can damage the camera and - more importantly - your eyesight. Hoya produce a neutral density filter (NDx400), which it considers will allow a minimum amount of time to just compose the shot, providing you then look away to take it. Viewing the sun for example during an eclipse requires totally different and much stronger filtration. You often see people using flash when taking photographs of sunset scenes or other landscapes. A flash is of no use whatsoever in these cases as the flash to subject distance is far too great. The only answer is to switch off the flash mode, put the camera on a tripod and if you don't have a cable release, use the self-timer mode.
