Chasing the sun

One of the general rules of photography is to shoot during the “golden hours” of the day. This encompasses the period of time just after sunrise and before sunset when you get no harsh shadows or blown-out highlights; just a warm, diffused glow that seemingly adds much depth and life to the shot. The further you are from the equator, the longer this golden “hour” lasts by virtue of the axial tilt of the earth.

Just a note of caution – be careful not to damage your eyes or equipment when shooting directly into the sun. It may appear harmless, but prolonged exposure can certainly be damaging to eyes and camera sensors alike.

This post documents some of our best shots captured all around the world during the golden hours. Enjoy!
