Quick, and gives you some nice new ways to think about landscape photography. I didn’t know about the different kinds of lighting, so that was helpful, just a little low on details.
Assignment: Find a favorite landscape around you, and go out to get a good “blue hour” photo, and a good “golden hour” photo.
A lot of landscape photography is getting out there when the light is best, to really capture the view in different styles to evoke different emotions. Different lighting can have a big effect on the appearance of a landscape.
“Blue hour” is about an hour before sunrise up till sunrise, and after sunset till about an hour after sunset.
But at sunrise and sunset it’ll be on opposite sides, so take that into account.
