Photographing piers at sunset is one of the easiest assignments you can get--but you have to work hard as the light changes and there's a narrow window of opportunity to grab the light.
Photographing a pier is easy, right? Not necessarily. You may want to take pictures on the pier looking down or to the horizon, but you really shouldn't miss the views from the beach with the sun setting between the pier pilings.
Tripod May Help
- If you're looking for the dynamo shot with the ocean well-lit, you may not see the brilliant colors of the sky but as the day darkens, the camera's still getting it and the results are usually pretty good. Bring a tripod to squeeze out some beautiful lights and maybe some motion of the ocean.
