By now, you probably know that some of the best natural lighting comes during sunrise and sunset. Warm tones during a sunrise can create a red or orange glow in your image that is hard to beat! On a beach, you can capture the clouds overhead, the waves in the middle, and the sand in the foreground. And if there’s water in the foreground, you can align your shot to display the scene’s reflection:
Photographer Eugene Olkhov ventured out to capture pictures of a beach sunrise in North Wildwood, New Jersey. He managed to incorporate a lone dog walker and their dog into the image, as seen in the stunning reflection. He used a Nikon D750 camera with a 24mm f/1.8 lens on a tripod. His settings included a 1/25 second shutter speed, f/10 aperture, and ISO 100. The day before, Olkhov noticed this location and wanted to portray it in warm sunlight during the following morning’s sunrise. The dog walker strolling through his shot happened by chance but certainly added appeal to the image.
