Get set up to shoot the sunrise

Even if you’re used to tak­ing time-lapse im­ages, there are a few ex­tra things you need to con­sider when tack­ling this tech­nique

Find the per­fect spot

Pick a lo­ca­tion where some­thing will change. If you plan to shoot at sunrise or sunset, that means a place where the light will al­ter within a short time.

Check the sun’s po­si­tion

Be­fore you head out, check where the sun will be in the sky – the Pho­tog­ra­pher’s Ephemeris can tell you this for any place in the world (www.pho­toephemeris.com).

Com­pose your shot

Com­pose your im­age in ad­vance. You know where the sun will be at the start of your shoot, so take a com­pass to gauge where it will be by the end of the ses­sion.

Pre­vent move­ment

Any slight cam­era shake will mean your im­ages won’t fit to­gether in post-pro­duc­tion, so use a tri­pod and shoot some­where shel­tered from any strong wind.
