4. Compose the shot
Keep the camera off the tripod at first; this will free you to experiment with framing. As well as the sun, include foreground details. Focus one-third of the way in (or use PhotoPills to obtain the hyperfocal distance) and shoot.
Key Skills: Chart the sun
1. Choose a date range
The sun might appear at a better angle at a different time of year. To check, open PhotoPills and choose ‘Planner’. Select ‘Find’ and set a date range. Pick an azimuth, which is the number of degrees away from due north. The clear part shows all the angles that are available.
