First Sunset Shoot

I performed my first sunset photo shoot a couple of days ago and then immediately went out of town on a planned trip before I had a chance to edit the photos.  It was a lot of fun and definitely a learning experience.  These shoots take time as we have to get there early enough to make sure all the lights are on and we establish the view we want to capture.  Then it’s a waiting game.  Waiting for the sun to set and the rich colors to pop out in the skies.  All the time taking a photo about every 5-10 minutes.  When the sun finally sets, it’s time to run around with a flash to add light to items like shrubbery, trees, darker areas on the house, etc.  These will all get edited and combined later during post-processing.  Needless to say, there are a lot of photos to go through.  In this case, I have 72 photos from the sunset shoot.   That will keep me busy tomorrow!  I’ll post the final result soon.
