Dawn of the day
Dancing in the dark

    1. There’s no way to tell the difference. Dawn and dusk look exactly the same. I know that was dawn because it was dark when I started shooting and day when I went home. But I have sunsets that look pretty much the same, although I think dawn is more pink and dusk is a bit more purple.

    1. You need the right camera … or really … the right lens. I had a very good f1.8 lens on the camera, so I could shoot in very low light. You also need to set the camera on the smallest point setting and make sure you take your light reading on whatever is the brightest item in the picture … in the bottom one, the string of lights. If the camera is good quality and you grab the light, you’ll get the shot. A lot of newer cameras have special setting for “night hand held.” I’ve tried them, but my own settings seem to work better. And most of the cameras with that setting don’t have fast enough lenses.

        1. A lot of people don’t care if their pictures are fuzzy. You see this stuff posted on Facebook, even on blogs. You can’t tell them anything. They don’t know how to use their cameras and if you tell them, they get mad at you. I have given up offering free advice. They don’t want it.


    1. Thanks, Leslie. We get great sunrises along our shores. One day it finally occurred to me that we don’t get great sunsets because we’re facing east! Duh! It’s hard to find a good clear west-facing area around here, but dawn is easier.
