Join our workshop to learn more hands-on techniques and capture the Costa Rican sunset in all its glory!

The golden hour in Costa Rica is unlike any other. As the sun dips below the horizon, the sky is painted with hues of orange, pink, and purple. But capturing that perfect sunset shot isn’t just about being in the right place at the right time. Here are five secrets to nailing that postcard-perfect sunset photo during our Costa Rica Photography Workshop:

  • Understand Your Equipment: Before the sun sets, familiarize yourself with your camera settings. Knowing how to quickly adjust your ISO, shutter speed, and aperture can make all the difference.
  • Use the Rule of Thirds: Position the sun or the main subject off-center for a more dynamic composition.
  • Incorporate Silhouettes: Use the setting sun to backlight subjects, creating dramatic silhouettes that add depth to your photos.
  • Play with White Balance: Instead of auto, try the ‘cloudy’ or ‘shade’ setting to warm up your shots.
  • Stay After the Sun Sets: Often, the most vibrant colors appear 15-20 minutes after sunset.
