The Roving Photographer


Magic Light

I’m not feeling very verbose tonight.  This may come as a surprise to some of you, based on some of my previous posts.  So instead of giving you a dozen longwinded reasons why sunrise/sunset light is best for outdoor shooting, I’m simply going to show you.

The following shots were taken Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  Personally, I prefer sunrise light by a small margin, although it is not as easily accessible, due to issues concerning alarm clocks.  Either way, we’d all do well to spend more time outside in this “magic light.”





What makes it “magic light?”  Think about the color temperature, the directionality, and the dynamic nature of it during this short window.  It’s unlike the light at any other time of day.  As photographers, this is the quality we are most concerned with – it’s all about the light.
