Photography Tip Tuesday – Week #9: Golden Light
May 06, 2008
This week’s tip is simple and easy because I have a date with a movie rental tonight.
Evening and morning light creates beautiful images. The soft light and long shadows are dramatic and flattering.
Of course, if you live here in Colorado Springs, you’re at a disadvantage because we don’t have much of a sunset–the sun drops behind the mountains before it really sets. But if you are determined, you can catch our amazing morning light (thanks to those endless plains stretching toward Kansas).
So if you’re going to pull the family outside for a quick family portrait, don’t do it at noon. Wait until after dinner for some nice evening light.
