What is so special about the golden hour?
The golden hour is the one hour before sunset or the one hour after sunrise.
The sun at this time of day sits lower in the sky, shadows are longer and light is really appealing and even. The light is quite diffused and soft often with ambient glows of yellow and gold.
When planning my photo shoot timing with my wedding couples, I always work around sunset times. Making sure our schedule gives us enough time to be in the right location for the perfect light. This light does tend to disappear quite quickly, Although the light is beautiful and soft, it hits its intensity at approximately 5 mins before sunset time and 5 minutes after sunset time. This is when the colours tend to be at their most intense.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as the light at the golden hour.
To help with this, here is a link to Sydney sunset times for this year.
