Watching the sunset together is definitely one of our favorite past-times. The good news is that you can do it from almost anywhere. It not only lets the kids get their last wiggles out, but it’s a pretty good excuse to experiment with sunset photos.

I like to force myself to step outside of my comfort zone in regards to light sometimes. I’ve been especially curious lately about taking photos that aren’t exposed for faces. I find myself not shooting with a pure portrait style, thinking of other items in photographs, in this case it was the sunset. The settings on these photos vary, but most were taken at ISO 100/200, and between F2.8 and 7.1. I’m going to start working on my photo tips series again since I have had so many photography related questions lately.

What do you want to improve on in your photos? What would you like to learn?

They are truly remarkable pictures, I too love to watch the sunset when I can. Btw have you changed your blog layout somehow looks different

Yes, I just put in a new layout. Making a few more changes in the next couple of days. Do you like it better? 🙂

Different lighting scares me! I def need to step out of my comfort zone that’s for sure. Beautiful pics!

The pier is gorgeous, I can’t believe that’s a lake, it’s huge! I escape in your photos.

Beautiful photography. You are very talented. My family loves Lake Tahoe too. Your images capture it beautifully!

I love these photos! The lake looks so tranquil and lovely. It makes me want to visit.

Your photos are stunning, as always. Love the gif and can’t wait for your photo tips posts, I’d love to learn anything and everything. 🙂

Thank you for giving tips and tricks on how to get better quality photos! I love playing with angles…I’m VERY armature with photography beyond point and shoot – and my camera is a Nikon D3100 that my husband bought for me awhile ago and I’m finally using it for (still point and shoot photos). I’m not sure what the difference is between your photos – but with fall coming I would love any help to get the best quality to capture these beautiful Ozark Mountains I live in. Thank you so much for sharing your talent!

again these photos make me want to pack up now… all those beautiful green trees make me want to go camping or to a cabin badly..
