Cuddling Couple at Sunset


Cuddling couple sitting on a ledge at sunset in Los Angeles

The weather Southern California has been beautiful these past several days, so I packed up my camera and headed out for a day of pictures. I know, sunset silhouette images have been done to death, there easy to take and are all over the internet. Well, here is my contribution to the million plus images of a cuddling couple at sunset!

For those beginners who want to re-create a shot like this, here are the steps:

  1. Best if using a DSLR or a Point & Shoot camera with an AE option.
  2. Get behind your subject, with the sun facing the front side of the person you plan photograph. (You-Subject-Sun)
  3. Make sure you and the camera are on the shadow of the person you are photographing.
  4. Zoom into your dark subject and allow the camera to set the exposure.
  5. Press and hold the AE button on your camera.
  6. Zoom out while holding the AE button and frame your image.
  7. Press shutter while still holding the AE button.
  8. Smile and show off your image on Facebook!
