As the sun nears the horizon – either at sunset or at sunrise – the light begins to dramatically transform the landscape before you. To capture this kind of light requires some skilled knowledge to overcome the limitations of your camera.
That is what this eBook is for – a detailed guide on how to successfully translate what your eyes see during one of the most challenging times of day to photograph.
Found here: The Golden Hours
The golden hours typically refer to that window of time when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, just before it sets or right after it rises. Photographing the golden hours is much more than capturing a specific time of day however – it also includes the emotional response to the visual quality of a scene.
When the sun is near the horizon line and provides you with that sharp angle of light, it not only produces strong shadows and highlights, but increases the texture of an image as well. There are many challenges that present themselves during this window.
The sunrise and sunset times are calculated by when the sun reaches the horizon line at sea level – it does not necessarily mean that is the precise time the golden hours will begin or end. The topography of your location plays a large role in determining what your window of opportunity is, and a landscape that has any substantial variation can alter this window greatly.
This light has the ability to transform your surroundings, but the specific kind of light that the golden hour provides is responsible for evoking a wide array of emotions – more than what can be expressed in words. It has the power to connect everyone to nature, and is a source of great inspiration that many landscape photographers treasure.
The guide comes in PDF format that can be read on computers, phones and most tablet computers. It also includes a section at the end on exposure blending which is becoming a common techniques among professional landscape photographers.
