Summer Portrait Tips: Magic Hour!


Beach Family Pictures-09

If you Google “magic hour,” you will see all-manner of imagery displaying this glorious lighting. Magic hour is the time of day soon after sunrise or right before sunset when the sun is lower in the sky creating warm, soft light. Instead of the sun being overhead as at noontime, the late afternoon light rakes across from low on the horizon making dramatic and long shadows that add striking elements to your photographs. These times of day are ideal for capturing your subjects in various landscapes and environments, especially when the light catches their hair just so…

Be sure to take advantage of these longer days, photographing your family and friends well into the evening. They’ll love how exceptionally flattering and enchanting the light is, earning you the title of exceptionally excellent photographer…Happy shooting!
