Calculating Sunset Times

For street fashion photographer who rely on day time shooting, it is a crucial knowledge to measure when is your last call of the day.

When I plan out fashion week schedules, I always check when would be a sunset time during the month that I am attending.

Once you type in the city that you are going, you will be able to see sunset times for that month.

If you see below example for my Paris Men's and Haute Couture schedule(Jan 18 - Jan 26), I know that I need to start heading home by 5:30 pm when you look at the sunset column.

It is a bummer when you have to wrap up your day at 5:30 pm everyday but in summer season, it stretches up to 8 p.m. which makes your day super long.
