How to Photograph a Sunrise

4:45am. After a few moments, your groggy mind remembers why you set your alarm in the first place.
Still dark out. But it won’t be for long.

Then you double-check your equipment list:

  1. Camera [no brainer]. Check.

  2. 24-70 lens [favorite for this activity]. Check.

  3. Tripod and quick release [a necessity]. Check.

  4. Shutter release [makes for clear pictures]. Check.

  5. Cleared cards [to take as many as you can]. Check.

You place your camera on the tripod. Pause to confirm your settings:

Shutter Speed (TV) = 20 seconds
ISO = 100
White balance = Shade
File type = RAW
