Sunset photography is a great way to show of your landscape photography skills. Sunset photography is not as easy as it sounds. It might seem like the nature will do the majority of the work for you. But the reduced amount of light and angle of the light source can make sunset photography challenging.
Capturing the mix of reds, yellows, oranges, and magentas in the evening sky is still one of my favorite subjects for my own photos. The only problem is that many sunset photos fall short short of what you’re seeing in real life. Either the sky is almost colorless or the land / sea in the foreground is totally black.
Sunset photography is a challenging genre within landscape photography. I have talked before about how our own eyes
and brain work together to let us see a very large dynamic ranges of light. We see details in shadows and very bright
highlights at the same time. Despite cameras having ever increasing dynamic range they still do not compare to the eye/brain combination. The problem is particularly felt in sunset photography where there is high contrast between the sky, where we often shoot straight at the sun, and the ground which gets darker later in the day with long shadows.
