Contrary to popular belief, photography during sunset or sunrise is not a very difficult task. Infact this is a time which photographers love to shoot in because of the fabulous photos it results in. And that is why, an hour before the sunset and an hour after the sunrise is usually called the Golden Hour in photography terms.
Moms can grab this one hour’s window to click some great pictures of their kids. Evening time is usually when your children go out to the park to play with their friends. Go with them and click pictures! Not only will you get some timeless action pictures and portraits, you will have the added advantage of the Golden Hour’s light.
Here are some tips which will help you while shooting during the Golden Hour.
1. Shooting in golden hour is the best time to click pictures as the lighting is soft and perfect. The soft overtones of sunlight can bring out amazing results which you must exploit to the fullest.
2. While shooting in the golden hour
you need a long exposure to compensate for darker tone. This will help in capturing more light since it is not sufficient and might result in grainy pictures.
3. Use a tripod while shooting as this will help in steadying your camera. This way, your pictures will not be shaky or blurry.
4. Shoot in aperture-priority mode. You might want to check if there is a mode specified for shooting during sunset in your camera. If yes, then use that.
5. When you click pictures of your kids against the backdrop of sunset then you create a silhouette which highlights objects against the sky with dramatic and attractive colours. So be there at the right place at the right time. Quick Tip to Keep your Photos Safe
