The sunset is a very beautiful scenery, and it is beautiful enough in itself. So how can you use photography to retain this beauty? What photography skills do you have for shooting sunsets?

Light and shadow, shoot together

The sunset is bright, while the silhouette is dark. There is a contrast between light and dark in the picture. Such a sunset picture is not monotonous.

Shooting silhouette note:

a. There should be gaps in the shadow of the silhouette. If there is no gap, it will be a black piece. Without any details, it will not look good. For example, in the first picture, the light is exposed from the gap on the top floor of the school, which makes the silhouette more beautiful.

b. Do not focus on the shadow when shooting a silhouette, but focus on the non-shadow position.

c. If you are at the seaside and take pictures of flying seagulls, you need to adjust the shutter speed (1/200s), and at the same time, you need to wait patiently.

Let the sunset screen have content

If you only shoot the sunset, it will be very simple. If there are other scenery besides the sunset, the sunset will play a very good decorative role.


a. If there is a reflection, the horizontal line should be kept level.

b. If it is not required to blur the foreground or background, use a small aperture, it is recommended that the aperture be less than 8 (that is, the number after F, greater than 8)

c. On sunny days, setting the ISO to 100 is enough.
