Key Tips for your Capturing a Sunset


Some Tips for capturing your sunset

1. Always try to use a tripod to maximize image sharpness.
2. Often, if you use a large aperture (Small F number like 4.5 or 5.6)
the image of the sun may be larger that at a small aperture.
3. Do not meter the scene as framed. If you meter the sky without
including the sun first, then use that reading when you re-compose, this
will provide better exposure values and not become too dark. Try
metering, continue to hold the button down halfway, recompose and then
push the rest of the way down.
