There are two times in the day I love to take photographs, sunrise and sunset. I truly believe some of the most beautiful images are taken at that time. Consistently, at least. I have this favorite little spot in some random park near my house. Every time I go there, I go at the same time, with different subjects, and I love every single image… every single time. I go at sunset, put my subject between me and the SUN, and shoot with the right settings, I truly believe magic happens in those moments. Those images are God’s gift to a photographer. We do not create the light from the sun, it’s all God-given. Sure, studio lighting is amazing, but natural lighting at sunrise/sunset is God’s way of showing only HE can create such beautiful miracles. The colors, the enormity of the sky, and the ambiance is unmatched.
So the next time you decide to do a photoshoot or get your photos taken, try out 30 minutes before the sun actually sets. You won’t regret it!
