It's no secret that for outdoor photography, sunlight is very important. And most of you probably also know that the best times are during the 'golden hour' which is just before sunset and just after sunrise.
I usually shoot my pictures and videos in the evening, because that's when I (and my photographing friends) have time. :-P
Now, I don't know if it's true, but some have said that the light during sunrise is even prettier than during the evening.. so I decided to try that. Now, I'm known for a lot of things.. but me being a cheery and active morning person ain't one of them!
So, I don't know.. perhaps the sunrise light might be nicer.. but I think I look better at 8 in the evening than 5 in the morning! Perhaps I needed more coffee... or perhaps I should have used the light in a different way. I'm not convinced yet.
Also, I'll be going on a small holiday to France soon. And I will test if the light is different than over here in the Netherlands. I'm a practical scientist,.. so that means lots of experiments! ;-)
I'll probably try photography at sunrise a few more times.. if I manage to drag myself out of my bed again at this early hour.
Do you have any favourite times for photography? And what are your lighting tips? Share.. and help spread the knowledge around! :)
Also shot some video clips during the morning 'golden hour'.. do you see any difference?
