A Sunset Story
Shooting sunsets is a passion of mine since I live on the coast. Capturing that special moment requires just the right combination of sky, clouds and atmosphere conditions. I avoid automatic settings and use manual. ISO at 125 or 250 depending on lighting, shutter speed 1/50 -1/250 F-11. Settings vary depending on effect I am looking for.
As for lens I carry 18-70mm along with 70-300mm lens. The bigger you want the sun the more magnification your lens needs to be.
Post Production is where the real magic takes place. Contrast, brightness, dehaze, filter the list goes on.
