The sunset & sunrise are the perfect time for any kind of photography. The light is soft and smooth during this time of the day. If you ask a photographer, this is the golden time for photography. It is also known as the 'Golden-hour' in the photography world. The 'Golden-Hour' in photography is defined as the first and last hour of sunlight in the day. i.e. the first hour of light after sunrise, and the last hour of light before sunset. This time of the day is known for producing great photographs. Sometimes, the 'Golden-Hour' is also referred as 'magic-hour' due to its magical & colorful lighting.
As the golden hour produces the magical & colorful lights at this time, it is also a great time to shoot silhouettes. The light at this time is much more flattering and beautiful to capture as compared to the harsh & bright sunlight during the day. It is an ideal time to create silhouette. Though the light is soft and diffused, but has sufficient intensity to make a good photograph. Creating a silhouette at this time has an added advantage, the sky is soft and has great colors. Giving you an opportunity to create a silhouette with a colorful background.
So, when you create a silhouette in this hour, it highlights objects against the sky with dramatic and attractive colors. Any sunset or sunrise works brilliant for a silhouette, but if the sky is clear, it is the best for a silhouette. It is because the colors are more intense and you'll get sharp and clear edges of the silhouette.While shooting in the golden hour you need a long exposure to compensate for darker tones & colors. Using an tripod will help you to a great extent by keeping your camera still for a long time.
