Sunrise near Satara, one of those mornings where I was glad we woke up at 3:30 to be first out the gate.

Some lovely photos in this thread.
A lot of silhouettes.

Perhaps one of the experts could talk through how to take one? :thumbs_up:
How to expose correctly to black out the landscape and get the correct colour in the sky.

I was hoping for an expert to come in and educate the rest of us :roll:
I am no expert but this is a little something to think of. If at all possible play in manual mode, do not be afraid no one has to see the first shots. Underexpose very slightly – between a half-stop and a full stop. This darkens the rest of the image, making the colour pop in comparison. The clouds are the main focus, without them it is a pretty bland sunset. If you want to soften the appearance of moving clouds, use a long shutter speed to blur them slightly. If they are drifting slowly you’ll need a longer exposure to achieve this than if they’re gliding swiftly across the sky.
When you’re going after sunset-specific shots, there’s a good chance that your foreground is going to be silhouetted against the sky. When this happens, it’s easy to forget about the foreground all together. This is a mistake. Remember that every part of your frame is important. The darkened foreground is simply negative space, and should be composed just like the rest of the image. Look for interesting shapes or objects to place in the frame to create a focal point that enhances the picture.

Most important is to have fun :thumbs_up:
