Sunset is directly in front of our private balcony with the "Caldera" volcano over to the left with Fira town on our right . Sunset is about 8.30 ish , but the low setting sun illuminates the white buildings for about 10 minutes or so starting about 8.10 - 8.15 . So i have only a short time to get the photos i want with the lovely warm light.
I have set the 5dsr with a 17-40 wide angle on a tripod, shooting at f10 , and varying iso between 200 and 400 , with flashgun and large diffuser . I have also set the external flash synq speed to 1/200 - 1/60 th so the camera exposes for the background and the flash freezes any movement. in theory anyhow :)
1/125 th iso 200 f10
1/100 th iso 200 f10
1/60 th f10 iso 200
Now we have lost the warm light, i am using a slower flash synq to give longer exposure for the darkening conditions , and allow more of the natural light in combination with slightly higher iso .
1/60 th f8 iso 400
1/15 th f10 iso 400
1/10 th f10 iso400
10 seconds , f14 iso 100
15 seconds , f14 iso100
After a successful shoot we are now going out for a walk and a snack :)
Love the statue sitting on the building with No feet! thought it was a person initially :)
