Sunsets are a favorite to photograph. We can focus our cameras on the perfect curve of the sun as it gently settles on the horizon. Or, we can focus on something in the foreground that frames that setting sun.
In this photo, I used a wide aperture (low f-stop) allowing me to focus on the marsh grasses in the foreground while blurring the setting sun in the background. The curves of the grass arch around creating a frame that pulls the eye toward the ball of orange.
Try framing the setting sun today. You can use grass, a tree, or even your (or someone else’s) hands to create a frame. No sunset? Find some other kind of light that is worthy of being framed.
