Levee Sunset


This was my first sunset video. I took it south of town next to a levee that extended for miles through fields. It really shows the importance of composition in video. I like the lone tree, the pattern of the recently tilled fields, and the curvy diagonal line of the mountains in the background. I also find that 1/3 or less of the frame should be filled by the ground, unless something in the foreground serves as the focal point. I’m including a still photo of the tree and Venus that I took by holding the shutter open for fifteen seconds at f/2.7 after I finished the video. Incidentally, that’s me walking along the levee in the video. I didn’t realize I was in frame.
