Soon Come: Sunset Saturday

We had another spectacular sunset here on the Hudson River last night. We shoot here on my Croton Creative Workshop.

The sky was so spectacular that we decided to make a quick movie on shooting sunsets. It's Part I. Part II to come. Be sure to select HD before watching the movie.

One tip from the movie: Always look back, as illustrated above.

Both images with my Canon 5D Mark III.

Top image: Canon 24-105mm IS lens - my favorite lens.

Bottom image: Canon 17-40mm lens - which I picked up after selling my 16-35mm lens, which is more expensive than the 17-40. This lens is perfect for wide-angle photography if most of your shooting is outdoors.

So what about Sunset Saturday? I'm looking for great sunset images to share here on my blog. Hey, you'll be more famous! Just send a link (link only - not the photo), to me via my email address. In the email give a brief description of the image. Please keep it short and sweet.

Here's one of my favorite sunset photographs. It was not taken in Croton on Hudson, as you might have guessed. I took the shot in Rajasthan India.

Explore the light,

A good sunset shot never ceases to amaze me. The thing is, getting the shot right isn't as easy as it seems. Even the best professional photographers have to get the timing and positioning just right to make masterpieces like these.
