Technique and Approach #3

For the third instalment of my series I would like to look at the Golden Hour.

That period of time 1 hr after sunrise or 1hr before sunset. Although I don't always shoot at this time, it certainly produces some beautiful light. Often creating unexpected and surprising colours with film.

This makes me happy.

The following image was shot only a month or so ago during WWIM (World Wide Insta-Meet) here in Brisbane. Atop Kangaroo Point overlooking the city. In this instance, focusing on the fauna growing along the cliff edge. The obvious being the city skyline. 

Focusing on the tree, with an almost identical one in the background giving it both a shadow  / silhouette look. Using Kodak Ultramax 400 Colour film, the colour was a little unexpected, but a wonderful surprise. 'Golden'. A slight vignette around the bottom where the sun slowly passes below the horizon. This has become of my favourite photographs. The golden colour, the silhouette. Simply nature.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
