October’s monthly contest

October’s Theme is : Sunset (Golden Hour/Blue Hour) Photography

Have you ever marveled at the exquisite hues that grace the sky during the moments of sunrise and sunset? If you have, then you’ve encountered what photographers refer to as “blue hour” and “golden hour” photography.

During these two distinct periods, natural light assumes a particularly enchanting quality, rendering it ideal for capturing striking images.

The Blue Hour: This enchanting interlude occurs just before sunrise or after sunset, as the sun dips below the horizon. At this juncture, a gentle, cerulean light bathes the sky, crafting a serene and cool ambiance.

The Golden Hour: The golden hour, on the other hand, manifests itself shortly after sunrise or before sunset, imbuing daylight with a reddish and softer quality compared to when the sun resides higher in the heavens. It is often referred to as the “magic hour” for good reason.

Whether you’re a novice shutterbug or a seasoned professional, honing your skills during these precious moments can create breathtaking photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime.
