The Perfect Time of Day for Natural Lighting

Corinne says:

“I shot this session in Queens NY for a well-known Author C. Joybell C. She contacted me after she seen my work on Facebook and asked if I’d be interested in shooting her book cover for her upcoming book Wolves of the Sapphire Sun.

For the shoot, I photographed 3 models and a dog who resembled a wolf. It was a lot of fun, even though it was cold as we shot in January.”

Corinne’s Photography Tip:

I made sure to shoot at golden hour – in other words, the time of day just after sunrise or just before sunset, when the sun is near the horizon.

In NYC, golden hour would be around 3pm during the winter months. There is no action or photoshop trick to mimic the real thing.

If you’re mindful of the time of day you’re shooting, and make sure to schedule your shoot during the golden hour, you’ll get beautiful, creamy dream lighting.









Corinne used a Nikon D700 with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens and a Tamron 70-200MM f/2.8 lens to capture these images.
