Sunset Photography Techniques

Tips on Sunset Photography Techniques

Sunset and Sunrise scenes are very mesmerizing; Mother Nature creates an impressive colourful work of art in the sky during these times of the day. However, you may not be successful when you try to capture the view. These tips are about Sunset Photography Techniques.

Firstly, you need to use the lowest possible ISO for Sunset photography to maintain quality and sharpness. Therefore, using a tripod is highly suggested to avoid the camera shake.

Secondly, you need to know your camera and its limitations. Check with your camera’s Instruction Manual to learn more about the hidden features on your camera. In this article, I will discuss one of these hidden features; The Metering Modes.

Average Metering Mode

By default, most digital cameras use the Average Metering Mode. Manufacturers use different names for this Average Metering Mode; Canon calls it “EVALUATIVE,” Nikon calls it “MATRIX,” Sony names it “MULTI,” etc.

Generally speaking, in the Average Metering mode, the camera light meter measures the light from several parts of the scene and makes an average exposure. In the picture below, I used the Average metering mode. The camera tried to make an overall exposure. Therefore, it sacrificed the colourful sunset sky over the darkness of the foreground. 

Sunset Photography using Average metering

As I mentioned above, the camera was on a tripod, so, just by changing the metering mode to Spot Metering, I captured this photo:

Just by switching to Spot metering mode, I forced the camera to expose the sky and ignore the foreground.

More Examples of Sunset Photography 

Below are more Sunset images that I used in the Spot metering mode. Enjoy the colours and contact me know if you have any questions.

Quick Camera Tip: BAD COLOURS SUCKS

Avoid Bad Colours in Your Photos

 

Previously, I showed you how to remove the colour cast in Photoshop. However, the best practice is to avoid bad colours while taking photos.

 

Digital cameras offer many advanced settings, and the White balance is one of them. You have Auto White Balance and some preset, such as daylight, Cloudy etc., but did you know that you can tweak the colours using the Custom White Balance?

Custom White Balance Vs Auto White Balance

While Auto White Balance can provide acceptable colours in 90% of your photography, there are times that your camera cannot set the colours correctly. 

To help your camera captures the right tone, you need to use the Custome White Balance.

Check your camera’s instructions to learn how to set up the Custom White Balance, or contact us. We will be glad to help you.

Custom White Balance Vs Auto

Cameras need a little help to capture the true colours.

You can learn more about White Balance in our Photography Classes or Tours.

Wednesday Photography Tips: PET PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

TIPS ON FABULOUS PET PHOTOGRAPHY

Do you have a pet and want to take eye-catching photos?

Then, let’s talk about pet photography tips. 

1- Do not take photos at your eye level. For a dynamic result, get lower and shoot at their heights.

2- Pets, like kids, are unpredictable, and they move swiftly. Try a faster shutter speed.

3- Center-weighted or Spot metering mode brings better exposure.

4- Use Continuous focusing mode for the action shots.

Quick Camera Tip: SAVE THE BATTERY

How to Save the Battery Charge

There are things that you can do to save the battery charge. In this post, I discuss a few popular ones.

Simple Tips to Save the Battery Charge

New rechargeable batteries are simply excellent. However, following these tips, your battery maintains the charge longer. 

Save the Battery

Camera Battery Health
By taking a few simple steps, you can increase the camera's battery health.

1- If you use the camera in an event and take photos frequently, do not turn on and off your camera. Let your camera goes to STANDBY (SLEEP) mode instead.
Turning on and off the camera uses more battery! Especially the dust removing function in new digital cameras drains the battery faster.

2- in cold weather, keep the battery warm by putting it in your jacket pocket. Having an extra battery allows you to keep one battery inside the camera and one in your pocket.

3- Using Back Button for focusing does not engage the Image stabilizing system. Therefore, you save quite a bit on the battery charge. For more on Back button focusing, click HERE.

Do you want to learn more?

There are more tips on digital cameras and photography.

Photography Bootcamp Program covers them all. It is a six-week workshop and consists of six classroom sessions and two field trips.
Our next Bootcamp starts on February 3, 2022.
