(#5241349) Blue Hour ends June 2nd
Posted by Photozone Zepher on 29 May 2021 at 4:12PM
The sun has dipped a certain amount below the horizon. The sky picks up a cool, crisp blue color before it gets too dark or what we refer to as night.
If it is a clear day, it wouldnít be unusual to also see some pink/red color near the horizon line as well. A night sky is darker and occurs after the blue hour and is very different.
But whilst itís called the blue hour, it doesnít actually last an hour. In fact, on average, it lasts around 20 to 40 minutes but can be even shorter.
Exactly how long the blue hour lasts on any given day will vary depending on the season and where you are in the world.
The downside of blue hour photography is that you only have a short window to capture your images. So unless you are prepared, you may end up missing the shot you wanted to take.
As with any photoshoot, planning is vital. Your starting point should be what you are actually going to photograph. Is it a cityscape? Is it a famous landmark?
Once you know what you are going to be photographing, you can begin to plot a few shot locations on a map. Using Google Maps street view, you can check your location to ensure that your view isnít going to be obstructed.
You can also check that there is actually going to be somewhere for you to be able to take the photo from. Itís disappointing to go to a location only to find when you get there that it involves standing on train lines.
