Magic minutes

It helps as a photographer if you aren’t one of the lazy types. Good photographs, especially landscapes are best when they are taken during what is commonly called the “magic hour” – those precious few minutes before sunset or the ones immediately after a sunrise. The relatively low angle of the sun means objects are lit more “front on” giving one a rich, brownish golden hue. And when you live in parts of the country or the world that have some haze and mist around these times, it is even more important to get off your backside and exploit the conditions. Here are some great examples of the magic hour photos from the photo blog


the colours are definitely magical

For best colour results in a digital camera during the magic hour, one must play around with the white balance setting. Sometimes choosing “Cloudy” or “Shade” or such equivalents based on your camera make, will actually make the image more vivid instead of choosing Auto or Direct Sunlight.
