‘The Golden Hour’

The ‘Golden Hour’ refers to the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset. The sun is low  creating long shadows and diffused lighting making these hours of the day flattering for portraits and good for landscape work.

These golden hours will be different depending where you live, and on the seasons.

I took the above images as light from the ‘Golden Hour’ after sunrise and before sunset flooded into windows in the house.

‘Top Light’- Lighting the subject from above, signifies other worldly prescence or angelic innocence. (Key Concepts, D.Bate/photographic Theory p.23 )
