Chris Marquardt: From Dawn to Dusk

Episode 1781 (1:07:56)

Today's photo topic is shooting pictures from Dawn to Dusk. Chris says that Sunset and Sunrise are known as the Golden Hours because of the marvelous light that can make your images look incredible. The colors in the sky are so different in the morning versus in the twilight evening. But no less remarkable. But in the morning, you'll enjoy a more crisp reflection in a lake because there is less wind. Things are quieter. Depending on where you are, though, the sun will rise or set more quickly. 

Also, early morning is a great time to take landscape pictures in cities because there are fewer people. The morning also offers more soft light. 
Here are a few sample images:

Our next photo assignment is - . Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "X" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "tgxcross" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
