‘When someone ask me this question, I always have the same response. Shoot outdoor photography when the light is good. The first hour of light in the morning and last hour in the evening are the perfect times to go on a photo walk. The light cast beautiful tones and the reflections are spectacular during sunrise and sunset. I have an app on my iPhone called Magic Hour that I rely on frequently. It tells me what hour will the be best time to take photos as well as the exact moment of sunrise and sunset. It also adjusts your location, so if you’re on vacation you can be confident you’ll know exactly when you need to be at the location you’d like to shoot. Another nice feature of the app is the alerts function. You can set a morning and/or evening notification for the start of magic hour or an hour prior, so you’ll never miss that perfect shot’
I’m loving magic hour too. Great tip. By the way, don’t forget your tripod at that time if day, or dreamy can become nightmare.
