sunset pictures. Some of these tips will work better with DSLR cameras,
but if you’re using an inexpensive point-and-shoot
camera,
then you can capture spectacular sunrise and
sunset
photography with many of these ideas.

The primary planning tips for your sunrise and sunset
photography are:

• Scout the best locations a day or two in advance.
These may include positions from which you can see
the natural horizon of the Earth, to the east to shoot
sunrises and to the west to shoot sunsets.

• Don’t just scout for sunrise and sunset
photography on sunny summer days. Different seasons
 and weather conditions can result in many more
dramatic and exciting sunrise and sunset photos
than a clear sky.

• During your location scouting, look for focal points, such as foreground or silhouetted objects or peo-
ple, that
will make your sunrise and sunset pictures even more interesting.

• Pack your camera bag with everything you might need: a tripod, a variety of lenses, extra batteries,
raingear, etc.
Timing is another part of improving your sunrise and sunset photography.

• Go online for the exact times of sunrises and sunsets on the days you plan to shoot. You want to ar-
rive at your sunrise locations at least a half-hour before the exact time, so you’re ready. You may also
discover some surprising sunrise photos before the sun is visible.
                                                                                                        Krugersdorp
                                                                                                        Camera Club


Sunrise and Sunset Photography Techniques Cont.
The same applies to sunsets. Be there early and continue to take sunset pictures after the sun has disappeared.

Now that you are in the right place at the right time, add the third ingredient—technique—for better sunrise and sunset
photography.
•   Learn how to compose your sunrise and sunset pictures using the rule of thirds. When you look through your cam-
era, imagine two equally spaced vertical and horizontal lines creating a gird of nine squares (like Tic-Tac-Toe). You
want to place any foreground or silhouetted object (or points of interest) at any of the four intersections of the lines, or
along the lines, in the case of the horizon. One of the major mistakes of beginner sunrise and sunset photography is
the horizon at the centreline of the picture. Simply putting the horizon along one of those imaginary horizontal lines
will immediately improve your sunrise and sunset photography.

•   Knowing how to silhouette an object or person against the light will immediately make your sunrise and sunset
pictures better than most. At the beach, those silhouetted objects could be palm trees, a pier or better yet a family
member, spouse or special friend.
• Shoot sunrise and sunset photography wide and narrow. A wide-angle view allows you to capture more of the sky,
so you can add more dramatic details. Use a zoom lens to narrow your view, so the sun is bigger in the picture. (Be
careful about looking directly at the sun through the camera’s viewfinder and anytime.)

•   Another professional technique that will help you improve your sunrise and sunset photography is to bracket your
exposures. This means that you take pictures at the prime exposure setting your camera suggests as well as the next
higher and lower settings. You may shoot excellent sunrise and sunset photos you didn’t expect and you couldn’t see
through the camera. Start with these beginner photography tips to take better sunrise and sunset photography, and
then learn more tips, as your skills progress and you upgrade your digital camera.




 Beach Photography— Memories of Your Vacation
You’ll enjoy beach photography, or any photography, and the results, if you
take the time to learn the “secrets” of better beach photos.

The first secret to better beach photography is dedicating some time
to find the best times, places and angles to shoot landscape beach
pictures. Use the first hour of your first day on the beach to scout and
explore the beach. These first few tips will help you find those
excellent beach photography locations. Take your digital camera with
you on your scouting expeditions, but don’t take any pictures! As you
find the best places to shoot beach photos, look through your digital
camera just to confirm that you can shoot the kind of beach
photography you want at that location. Of course, if you discover a
location and an image that is perfect, then certainly take a picture. You’ll also want to pay attention to
how the light and environment changes during the day, even if you’re enjoying other beach activities.
With that knowledge, you’re much more likely to capture beach photography your family and friends will
want to see again and again, The time of day is also a secret to better beach photography. Typically,
sunrise and sunset will provide more unique light and colour conditions. You may record some of your
most interesting landscape beach photography on stormy and cloudy days, with rough surf and dramatic
skies. You can make this type of beach photography even more spectacular if you’re shooting with a
DSLR camera with a polarizing filter on the lens. A polarizing filter increases the contrast between differ-
ent shades of light and colour, so the clouds in a stormy sky in your beach pictures are more distinctive.
The filter also makes the blue of a cloudless sky or a tropical sea deeper and richer.
                                                                                                                     Page 2
                                                                                Krugersdorp
                                                                                Camera Club


Beach Photography— Memories of Your Vacation

The next secret to improve your beach photography is to look for specific features of or on
the beach to become the points of interest in your beach pictures. A boat pulled onto the
beach, a single umbrella, or natural objects, such as driftwood, a palm tree or the sun and
the moon, are just a few examples. Then, compose your beach photos with the featured
object (or people) using the rule of thirds. When you look through your camera, imagine
two equally spaced vertical and horizontal lines creating a gird of nine squares (like Tic-
Tac-Toe).

You want to place the point of interest at any of the four intersections of the lines, or along
the lines, in the case of the horizon. One of the major mistakes of vacation photographers
is to shoot beach pictures with the horizon at the centreline of the picture. Simply putting
the horizon along one of those imaginary horizontal lines will immediately improve your
beach photography.

There are also a few secrets to beach photography with people. After all, most beach va-
cations are with family or friends, or for couples. Technically speaking, there is too much
light on a beach. The intense rays of the sun combine with the light reflecting from the
white sand, making it difficult to shoot beach photos of your family and friends. They are
wearing sunglasses that hide their eyes and maybe hats with large brims, which cast deep
shadows on their faces. The most obvious tip is not to take beach pictures of people with
the sun behind them.

Although you want the sun illuminating their faces instead, that can cause people to squint
and make the shadows on their faces even deeper. If your camera has spot metering,
then you can take those beach photos of people with the sun behind them. Set the pic-
ture’s exposure based on the reading from their shadowed faces and the camera will allow
more light, so everyone will be recognizable in those beach photos. You may want to fill
the frame with the individual or group because the background will become very bright.
The other lighting secret for better beach photography of people is to use your flash to fill
those shadowed faces with light, and still expose for the ambient light level.

If you enjoy the beach and want better beach pictures of your fun there, then try some of
these tips during every visit. It’s a great reason to return and improve your beach photog-
