Week 19 (Edge Cut Sun) – Sunburst


Photographing the sun during sunrise or sunset is relatively straightforward, however, when you photograph the sun during the day, it can be tricky.  During the blue hour or golden hour, the light is at its best for photographing the sun and landscape so when its broad daylight out, you want to add interest to your subject.  This week we were to use an edge to cut the sun and to stop down the aperture when shooting the sun.  I used our birch tree’s branch to cut the sun and create interest.  Using an aperture of F22 created the sunburst behind the leaves.
