“Music is a mysterious mathematical process whose elements are part of Infinity. ... There is nothing more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little — the book of Nature.”
~ Claude Debussy

ConfinesOfReality: I know about your harsh winters... but everywhere is great 4 photography. For example you can shoot people walking on the frozen river. You can take advantage of that freezing weather (remember to warm the batteries in your pockets b4 use to make them last longer).

Rest of commenters: thanks for your words!!!! I promise to keep posting... and I promise to write articles about photography (I hope to have more free time in June).

Hello, I've just found your website with your amazing work displayed. I am experimenting with various types of lighting, slow shutter speed, aperture however, I am using a D5000 with kit lenses therefore I am not getting the very best results in low lighting but I am adamant that I can make this work - am I wrong. There is no way that I can shoot a sunset at an ISO of 200, even raising the E.V. to its highest of 5+ and opening up the aperture and of course slowing down my shutter speed. The last photos I took were ruined because of the noise value, also they were very dark. I had one acceptable photo but only just.

I bought my eldest daughter a nikon prime lens - 50mm F1/8 - I attempted to take sunset photos with it but the photos were mostly blur, I think I need to learn how to use it properly. Am I right in believing that I can take sunset photos with this lens?

Would love to hear from you because I absolutely love your art form
All the best

JaviZ on June 21, 2012 at 5:24 PM said...

Thanks for your kind words AVA!
Yep, you can use that 50mm prime for landscape photography! I personally prefer 10-20mm (check this particular photo), but it is just personal taste! :)
If you take sunsets or anything "landscape" related you need to set F8 or 11 or more! to make everything in focus. So if there is not enough light you should use a tripod (at least a monopod) and expose for a longer time (1 sec? 5 secs), it is all about light... and experimenting! Keep trying 'til you master your toys!
Let me know if you need some more details.
