Walking into the Sunset

Sunset shots are some of the best most enjoyable breathtaking badass pictures you can take.

Not only is the light at a golden hour moment-  Golden hour is the ideal time to photograph outside meaning it’s soft, warm, and golden-  but the effects on the sky and ground are lovely.

Check out the ground.  The crazy long shadows are a result of the sun’s position.  It adds a new dimension to the image.  The dark shadows add density and a little mystery.  Now the sky.  Gotta be careful not to over expose or you get a white sky and not a lovely dark blue one.  If I had a polaroizer filter I could have made the sky a darker blue.  But in this case, I under exposed by 2/3 stop and played around with the shutter speed to get the right look.

Colors were boosted in Lightroom and that’s all.

I use a 16-35mm wide on this shot to bring as much foreground and sky as possible.  The whole series we took of this were amazing.
