”Golden Hour” Photography-35 Wonderful Examples


Photographers know that there must be enough light and correct angle for a photo to make it perfect.Not more or not less.This is very important.Especially in landscape photography,if you take photos in correct light angle with enough light then be sure that it will be a good one.
So what is Golden Hour Photography?Wikipedia tells us this very brief and easy to understand.

In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day,when a specific photographic effect is achieved with the quality of the light.

The light doesn’t hit the object straight but hits with an angle.And this makes the photo with perfect quality.It gives ambiance,a touch of romance,…….

Well you make think this period lasts for an hour but not.From my experience for years,it would be good not to call it Golden Hour but Golden Minutes.You only have a few minutes to get the perfect lighting qualitiy..It is better for you to look over the below photos to see what i mean.
But before that,there is a web site which you can calculate the Golden Hour for a specific location.The Golden Hour Calculator As you may understand,it calculates the sunrise and sunset time of your location.It determines your place automatically from your IP number shows you the time of Golden Hour.
