Finest Twilight Photography


This post includes stunning twilight photography and tips so that you could also capture this twilight in your camera.

If you have opened this page for Twilight the movie franchise or Twilight the book series, you would be utterly disappointed because this page is not even remotely relevant to that.

Twilight is the soft glow you see in the sky when the sun is setting below the horizon. This glow is formed when sunshine is reflected from the atmosphere layer.

In photography terms, twilight is the time span of two hours around sunset. And we are sharing photos of those timings.

These are absolutely picturesque images and they can be a huge inspiration for you to go out, try to take these photos yourself… or just the enjoy this magical time.

What a time twilight is, to some it’s the time of romance, to some it’s the time of prayers but to most of us it’s the time to go back home. It is the time when drop off all burdens and be with the people we love. Pictures of twilight hours bring us the same feeling and that’s why they are so popular.

Twilight Photography Tips

Best time to shoot it is almost Sunset/Sunrise to make the shadows long. 20-30 minutes after the sunset also works great when Artificial Lights are taking over.

Be there at least 20 minutes before the showtime. You should be able to get a feel of the environment and find the best location.

Focal point is a must. One prominent subject, like a tree, the sun, sunshine rays, water, a stone or something that the viewer’s eye can focus on.

Use the shutter release cable (if you have one for long exposure photos) or you can use the timer delay option.

Set everything on Manual, Auto focus OFF.

Set the ASA to the lowest (100 mostly).
