No photographer will every tell you that they’re tired of photographing sunsets. The moment is like a magic show where Mother Nature pulls out new tricks every time. Depending on the weather conditions, you’ll feel like the sunset looks different every time you see it. Photographer Tanmay Sapkal took the following image during sunset at DeMartin Beach:
Sapkal took the image with his Nikon D750 and Tamron SP 24–70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 lens. The image was shot at 24mm, f/18, 1/8 second, and ISO 50.
Shooting at a narrow aperture of f/18 allowed Sapkal to take the photo using a slow shutter speed without having to use any kind of filter. This has captured some motion of the water giving a dynamic feel to the image.
What’s interesting in this image is that, even though it looks like Sapkal has captured the motion of the clouds, that’s not the case at all. A shutter speed of 1/8 second would not be enough to capture the motion of the clouds. Just image how spectacular it would’ve been to witness clouds like those in real life.
Another interesting aspect of this image definitely has to be the intensity with which the sunset is being reflected on the turbulent water of the Pacific Ocean. It’s like the fire in the sky has trickled down on to the ocean.
