Irish Rail’s Kent Station, Cork—Three Photos at Dusk.

One of my favorite times of day to photograph is dusk on a clear evening when there’s a still a rich blue glow in the sky.

Two tricks to making the most of this type of light:

1) Override the camera meter and overexpose by about half a stop.

2) Use a tripod or otherwise steady the camera.

I braced my Lumix LX7 on railings.

    Hi Brian – enjoying your photos. I was in Cork back in the late 1980s and I remember an fairly old steam loco on display at the station – is it still there?
    Thanks,
    Bill
