Golden Hour Photography

Happy Sunday everyone, today I’m going to share with you photos taken outside from around our home that were all shot at the time referred to as the “Golden Hour”,  a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky. 

You’ll notice the photos take on almost a pink cast that gives them a warm peaceful feeling. I was having issues with my camera so I set out on a mission to figure out what the problem was and while doing so I was able to capture some amazing shots. Here’s a little trick of mine: my favorite way to shoot is from the hip, and by that I mean I literally hold my camera at hip heights and take photos. I can’t see what the lens is capturing and that’s the funnest part. The angle and perspective is always something that the natural eye wouldn’t ordinarily pick to photograph.  More often than not these become some of my favorite photos. 

After taking several photos using different methods and settings I figured out my camera lens was putting stress on the camera body causing it to not connect correctly. Once I forced myself to not direct the lens towards the ground when carrying it, my problem was solved. I was happy that it wasn’t going to be a costly fix. 

Grab yourself a beverage and enjoy the outdoor tour from around the cabin (note: photos are unedited so you’ll see everything in it’s natural state, things I would normally take out of photos such as the twine holding the clematis up, but I decided to keep these pics in their raw state).

  1. Wow! Your photos are beautiful and so peaceful. Amazing!

    1. Thank you Barb 🙂 I love our country home.

  2. Great photos. I saw several that together would make a wonderful framed collage or series. A gallery wall of individually framed photos such as these would be priceless.

    1. Pat what a great idea I wonder if I could find a place for a series? I have a thing for black and white photos so I may have to turn a few to B&W and see how they look.

  3. Thanks for the wander around your place. Almost like being there in the beautiful outside spaces.

    1. Jan I think not staging photos sometimes turns out much better anyway.
