Here are some sunset photos I took at Laguna Beach, California. What I like about the first photo is how it’s a little blown out on the left. It gives the appearance of the photo fading into the distance.
Do you remember the photo of sunglasses I posted a couple weeks ago? That shot was taken a little to the right of this image.
The second photo uses water on the sand to reflect the colors of the sunset. This brings the colors of the sunset into more of the photo.
When shooting sunsets, don’t stop after the sun goes below the horizon. Some of my best sunset shots, especially at the Grand Canyon, were done after the sun has set. The sky can really light up, especially if there are clouds. And remember to look all around to see what the light is doing both in front of you and behind you.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments about these photos, or photography in general.
