Tips on Photographing Sunrise/Sunsets
Smart Photography|May 2021
Everyone loves sunrise and sunsets. Let’s say, that you take a photo trip to an exotic location. Unless you know that area well, you may not know where exactly to go for the best sunrise/ sunset experience.

Do your homework. Find out the sites where sunrise/sunsets generally are the best. You could check dedicated apps, check on the Net or better still, take a local guide with you. Be at the location at least 20 minutes before the sunrise. This will give you a chance to scout around for the best shooting position.

Consider a good tripod as a must. If it has a centre column, remember not to extend the centre column to its maximum height as that can cause camera movement during exposure. Instead, use the centre column only for minor adjustments in height. Ideally, a tripod height should be such that the mounted camera is at your eye level (without the use of the centre column). Set your ISO to 100 (unless the base ISO in your camera is different).

THE UNSEEN WORLD

Roshan was born and brought up in Ranchi. Professionally, he is a Gazetted Officer in the Judiciary Department of the govt. of Jharkhand. Roshan is fascinated by Macro Photography. “I used to get allured with the pictures covering delicate details of the unseen macro world- especially tiny insects, which ultimately triggered my passion towards macro photography. My journey as a Macro Photographer started in the last quarter of the year 2018. Though I rarely get time to pursue photography due to my profession, but, whatever time I manage, I love spending it with my ‘macro subjects’. Some of my favourite venues for Macro photography are Horhap Jungle, Ranchi, Birsa Zoo, Ormanjhi and of course my own garden.”, says Roshan. Instagram: @macro_roshan
