Nowadays it seems everyone is an amateur photographer! So who couldn’t use helpful tips from Wilmington, NC professional photographer Stephanie Moore of Moore Photography. Photos of sunsets and sunrises are always popular, so we asked Stephanie to share her tips for photographing at those times of day. Let us know how your photos turn out next time you stay in one of our Ocean Isle Beach, NC oceanfront hotel rooms!
When photographing people during a sunset or sunrise:
- Choose to start about an hour before sunset or sunrise
- Point the subjects to the right or left of the sun, not straight in to it
- Have fun with it! Try shooting a silhouette with the sun behind your subject
- Try different angles and play with the long shadows that will appear as the sun sets or rises
