Skywatch: Bandung Sunset January 02, 2008 - How to Take Golden Sunset Photograph with Your Digital Pocket Camera
This is what Bandung sunset looked like today.
This is a fresh (as is) photo from my 3.2 mega pixel digital pocket camera. I did no post-capture enhancement whatsoever to the photograph. I took this photo from the parking lot of Borma Supermarket on Jalan Dr. Setiabudhi in the north of Bandung at about six o'clock today.
Perhaps you're wondering how an old, cheap digital camera could take a picture as good as this?
Well, here is the simple tip for taking a golden sunset photo:
To take a golden sunset like this, set your camera white balance to "sunny" (usually symbolized with the sun icon in your camera button). This way, the warmth glow of the sunset sky will be rendered most strongly on the camera sensor. Try it. You'll be pleased at how your golden sunset photograph turns out.
