Morro Bay California Sunset Photo: A great photograph of the sunset over Morro Bay with the signature Morro Rock in the background. This photo was shot with Olympus C-3030 Zoom digital camera using an Olympus 1.45X Tele Conversion Lens. Digital Photography Tips and Tricks: Many elements have to come together to make a great sunset photograph. It helps when God provides some interesting clouds and lights them up with breathtaking colors; a good many grand sunset photos like this one have some sort of water in the foreground, the waters reflective qualities double God's lighting work and help to provide the photo with a natural symmetry. It's quite hard to capture any detail in people or objects in the photograph because most everything is backlit but like you can see here silhouettes can add interest and help frame the shot. If you are attempting to take a portrait with the sunset as your background you can compensate for the backlighting by using your flash and cameras spot metering mode.
