Some times nature puts on its own little light show for you


  • A good sunset. The good ones usually happen on fine days where there is light cloud cover high up in the sky, and there is little or no wind.


  • Put something good in the foreground. This way you're taking a photo of something and the sunset is the background. You can take photos where the sunset is the main subject, though they're usually not as good. Ideally you'll be taking a photo of something interesting in its own right, with the sunset acting as ridiculously good lighting.
  • Note: The 'something interesting' will get silohetted
  • Sunsets are ususally very pretty for at least a few minutes, usually longer, so change your position a little bit and get some different types of shots it. Also experiment with tight shots using your cameras zoom.
