According to world renowned photographer, Jim Zuckerman, the best time of the day to shoot a landscape is at sunrise. “You have golden lighting and beautiful texture,” he explains.

In this video, you will learn the importance of photography exposure. Jim composes a lighthouse in silhouette and sets his exposure for the rising sun to embrace the rich colors of the sky. You will learn why underexposure works well to bring out dramatic colors, why setting your white balance in daylight mode makes sense, and how to look for the graphic design of your subject.

Get up early with pro shooter, Jim Zuckerman, who offers photography exposure tips on shooting a sunrise in Portland, Maine.
