at dawn and dusk we often shoot towards the sun as this is the most vibrant part of the sky. However, the sky will often be much brighter than the land so a balanced exposure can be a struggle. one solution is to take two shots (using a tripod) and blend them together later. either shoot manually and vary the shutter speed for this, or alternatively use aperture priority mode and dial in exposure compensation. Here our sky exposure was 2 seconds long, the land exposure was 10 seconds – a difference of 2 and 1/3 stops.
