The Modern Sunset

The Modern Sunset

I generally have a love-hate relationship with sunset photography. I love experiencing them in real life, but I really don't like sunset photos. As a child I always remember seeing people marvel over a shot that had neon pink colourings with over saturated reds and yellows. Apparently this was a sure sign of a superior shot. As a designer I typically despise these scenes, I find the color palette tacky and unsophisticated. So while travelling in Hawaii I made a plan to rediscover sunset photography. I wanted something with warmth and atmosphere, but not a garish spectrum of 1980's colour. By using the final rays of light, subtle atmospheric tones and some careful adjustment in Lightroom - I think I found my happy place.
