Just for Fun: 14 River Sunsets


Almost any collection we put together that was photographed during the golden hour continues to do well here on Light Stalking. This collection of eye candy will hopefully help with the daily inspiration too. Enjoy these river shots taken at sunset that were mostly done using techniques that we have discussed here before. Use them as a kick in the butt to get out and shoot!

Rob's Gear
Camera: Nikon D810
Lenses: Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8

Super enhancing clarity and, tonal ranges etc in Photoshop doesn’t make an image look great. In my opinion, these images would have been so much nicer if people weren’t obsessed with doing that.

Too many black holes… My golden hour shots that sell have detail everywhere.
Use Ansel’s zone system, Use ND grads, use HDR make it work.
See example.
