Golden hour

Photo Plus - - A-Z Guide -

Al­though not nec­es­sar­ily an hour long, this is the pe­riod of time af­ter sun­rise or be­fore sun­set in which land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers par­tic­u­larly en­joy work­ing be­cause of the favourable ef­fect of the light on their images. The main rea­son for the term is the warm colour of the sun­light, which, to­gether with its re­duced con­trast, gives out­door scenes an es­pe­cially at­trac­tive ap­pear­ance. The low an­gle of sun­light also cre­ates longer shad­ows and re­veals more tex­ture in a land­scape.
