Question by BostonSoxGuy_85: Tips for filming during sunset/sunrise?
I am going to be filming around a local lighthouse for a film class project. I want to shoot during a sunset/sunrise to give it a softer look.
First. Is it better to film during sunset or sunrise?
Second. Do you have any tips for filming at these times? Either settings or tricks w/ the white balance or anything to give the image a good look. I have to do it all in-camera editing for my class so no post production.
im on the east coast. so the sun is coming over the ocean
Answer by coop
Sunset or sunrise qualities will depend upon which coast you are photographing. I would recommend sunrise on the east coast and sunset on the west coast.
Sunset, shoot fast and fill the foreground at 1 or 2 stops lighter than the background for more dramatic effects.
