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.
