Get There Ahead of Time
Once you get to your vacation destination, scope out the area and look for spots that have spectacular views of the sunset. This will give you an idea on the best places to shoot your sunset photos! Also, check the local time to know the time of the sunset. Arrive at the place half an hour before the sunset so that you can get ready!

Experiment With the Weather
Sunset photos are not only good when the sun is out. In some cases, when the sky is filled with clouds, the colors can change or the sun can peek out from behind them. These instances can yield amazing pictures.

Work with Silhouettes
Sunset photos become more interesting if there is an added subject. What you can do is work with silhouettes of objects that may be in the frame when you shoot the sunset. Work with people, boats or other objects.

These are some tips that will help you with your sunset photos! Remember to keep shooting since the sun’s position changes every few seconds as it sets. This will give you variety in your photos and rest assured, you will be able to find that perfect sunset picture that fits right in your vacation album!
