The Magic Hour: Sunsets and Sunrises

One of the secrets to amazing photography is getting your lighting right. A trick to achieving these photos instantly is to shoot an hour before sunrise or sunset. If you’d like to learn more about the Magic Hour you can check out this post here. I’ve even created a PDF tutorial just for you!

Day 6 photo challenge:

First, decide if you’ll shoot at sunrise or sunset. Choose a location with a great view and arrive an hour before sunrise/sunset. Photograph the beautiful view (you can even use what you’ve learned in previous lessons)! Then, while you’re at it, take the time to enjoy the sunrise/sunset :) Often we are too busy to appreciate the beauty around us but photography helps us slow down and capture these moments.

Now, your turn. Use the magic hour to create amazingly beautiful photos and I'll see you tomorrow with our last challenge!
