2013 Challenge, Week 25: SUNSET/SUNRISE

OK y’all, we’re already at week #25! So exciting to see the mid-point of the year arrive. At this point, you should have a firm grasp of what to do with each week’s theme. Some of them, we feel compelled to encourage or cast a vision for you. But, most of the time, I think you get the idea.

This week’s theme is simple, but not necessarily easy. I want to see you get up early, or plan an evening, with the best opportunity for you to capture a sunset or sunrise. These can take some planning, to pull off right. Sure, you can shoot one anywhere. But, often the best presentation of the sunset or sunrise isn’t just about the actual thing happening. It’s really about the context! The light created at these wonderful times can really be exquisite! You have a cobalt blue sky, being contrasted with the most wonderful oranges. If you don’t have any special weather happening, you might need to capture all the gorgeous light bouncing.

So, you almost need to location scout before you’re ready for the best sunset or sunrise shot. You might need to even try it a couple days in a row, before it’s just right.

Don’t forget to tag and upload to all the right spots. Tagging is generally “2013PhotoChallenge”. And uploading happens to our Google+, Facebook, and Flickr group/community/pages. 🙂

I look forward to the results!
