This is a very simple technique. First,wait for the sun to be low in the horizon. When you see it peeking through the trees set your camera to aperture priority and to the smallest aperture possible. For some of you that will be f/16 or f/22 and for some f/28 or f/32. Because the aperture is so small, the camera’s meter has to compensate for the low light by using a slow shutter speed, so you will need a tripod. You will also need a lens hood to reduce lens flare, although some will be inevitable. DO NOT LOOK THROUGH THE LENS INTO THE SUN WITH THIS PROCEDURE. YOU COULD DAMAGE YOUR EYES.
