When people are just starting out in photography, they make a big deal out of Golden Hour.
It’s completely understandable, but it’s not completely necessary. This is my opinion and while you can go out and wait for that magic time to get the best natural light possible, I think it’s important to know how to set up and frame a shot that has great lighting.
I rarely shoot at golden hour, because I am not out and about at those times lately, though I can do it if I need to.
However, if you don’t know how to shoot at golden hour, you can get some horrible shots even with the best lighting.
What you won’t find online, though, are bad golden hour shots. People love to post their good ones. And it wants me to go and make some bad Golden Hour shots to show how easily the best lighting situation can be ruined.
For now, we’ll take a look at some of my favorite golden hour shots, including phone shots that I have. I even have a stupid selfie in there. I really want to just ramble more often here about photography and post photos of stuff.
If you’re into it, look forward to my ramblings to come.
