The first sunset with a DSLR
I love sunsets, so I could’t wait to take my camera to the beach and hope for one of those spectacular sunsets. Dubai is not the most ‘photogenic’ place, is dusty, foggy, humid, hot, the sky is dull most of the time – not a photographer paradise for sure. But, if you have your camera ready in the exceptional days, the results can be pretty impressive (usually I only have my phone camera with me in those days!). So, long story short, these are some of the pictures I came back with after my first sunset photography project. The main thing I learnt that day: changing the white balance from ‘auto’ to ‘cloudy’ will give your sunset a more dramatic and warmer mood.
PS What you see as the horizon, is a man-made island in the making (frustrating as it is never a straight line)
