Epic Sunrise Photography in London

I often say that it’s my duty to shoot sunset or sunrise photography! I love landscapes and cityscapes, so I must take these pictures when the conditions are right! And I think sunrise photography can be more rewarding because it requires more efforts.

First of all, from Spring to Autumn the time is not favourable. You need to wake up quite early to catch the sunrise. Better in Winter when you can have sunrise past 7am. This also means there are less people capturing sunrise photography so you could stand out more.
Also, a good sunrise a bit harder to forecast, particularly in a windy island like Great Britain, because the weather is ever-changing and during the night you may not see the same indicators you use to spot a potentially good sunset. I mostly look at the high and low clouds movements on some weather apps, but you never know until you go out and wait.

But it’s September, which means I had to go out at 4:30am to be there on time to shoot this photo and the YouTube video. I’m glad the weather cooperated this time!

The Video

So here it is! In this video you see all the preparation and the actual sunrise, which was not the best I witnessed in London but it is still pretty high in the list.
In the second half of the video, I quickly show you how I then edit such photo to achieve an even more spectacular result. Nothing too fake, I just like to fix the softness of the RAW files and render the colours as gorgeous as possible while keeping them real.

The result is in this video:

I won’t try sunrise photography too many other times before the colder season arrives, so I’m happy that this came out the way it did. And it hope it can inspire you to get out and shoot even at such early hours! And if it’s something you already do, share it here: I want to see your photos!
