With the nights drawing in, I’ve been taking more twilight photos. What are the best settings to use for accurate colour reproduction?
Jason says... The period after the sun has set, but when it’s only just below the horizon and its light bounces back off the sky, is often called the ‘blue moment’ – so-called because of the deep blue colour of the sky at twilight. A problem with capturing that colour is that a digital camera’s Auto white balance setting tends to neutralise the bluish colour cast. Try switching to the Direct Sunlight white balance setting or, to really bump up the blue hues, use the Tungsten white balance option. As always, it’s best to shoot in RAW, so you can easily make adjustments to white balance when editing.
The Vivid or Landscape Picture Control options can also boost the blues of twilight photography
