Has anybody ever shot at sunrise for a sunset scene or at sunset for a sunrise scene and how did you
make out? Also, has anybody ever shot at pre-dawn for after sunset or after sunset for pre-dawn?

Thanks.

As long as it's not someone watching a sunset on the ocean on the East coast, you'll be fine. ;)

Thanks, Michael. That actually gave me a good laugh, reminding me of long ago when I was a p.a.
on a car commercial with this famous director and the company had come to the East Coast to get
away from "L.A. scenes" I think they called it. So we convoy to the last shot of the day, the car
on the beach but whoever scouted it aparently didn't know or report that at this time it was low tide and the
beautiful sandy beach was also rocky and seaweedy below the high tide line. I guess that they couldn't
frame or shoot around that so they had the p.a.'s carry five gallon buckets of sand (heavy!) across the
street to the inland marsh and create a "beach" there with the marsh water and no rocks.

At this point they shot looking in from the street ( looking Westward) so the sun set over their "beach" just
like good old L.A..
