Phuket Sunset Photos
Sunset happens every single day (yes it does!) and yet everyone seems to be instinctively attracted to it like a fly to a candle, including myself. I don’t pretend to know everything about sunset photography but I can share some useful tips that might help you improving if your are not happy with your own sunsets photos.
1) Plan your photo
Try to decide in advance where you will be when the sun will set and come a bit early and take the time to look for the best angle, foreground or subject. When exploring Phuket, mentally note place that would work well for a sunset and try to estimate the movement of the sun: you don’t ant to find out at the last minute that the sun will disappear beyond a hill! If you don’t know the sunset time, go to Google and type ‘Phuket Sunset‘ and it will give you the exact time! (Of course it works for anywhere else).
2) Don’t use flash to shoot the sun!
Don’t laugh, I see it every time at go to Prompthep Cape where hundreds of tourists come to see the sunset from this popular viewpoint. Only use the flash when you take someone in front of the sun, but you will need to set up your camera to fight the right balance between sun light with flash light.
