Most photographers love photographing sunsets. In this video, professional photographer, Ian Plant, gives you some tips on shooting the city skyline at sunset.

You will learn that the setting sun, clouds, and sky are compositional elements of the scene. The main subject is the city, its buildings, bridges, and trees. With his 16mm wide angle lens, Ian uses a bridge railing as a leading line in his final composition. After the sun disappears, he waits for the city lights to go on and photographs the city in the blue of twilight.

Join pro shooter, Ian Plant, for tips and techniques on photographing sunsets in the city.
