Golden Hours: A Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets is an eBook written to help guide photographers through the unique challenges that this light presents. Many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they saw. I help to explain why this is so, and more importantly, how to transcend the disparity between your view and your results, allowing you to create realistic images of this beautiful light.

The “golden hours” refer to the window of time when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, just before it sets or right after it rises. As the sun nears the horizon, the light begins to dramatically transform the landscape before you. The atmosphere becomes thick and golden, shadows are lengthened, and highlights are brightened. Soon, your scene develops texture, depth, and becomes a stunning show of light. It’s a highly-coveted time to photograph the landscape, but is also challenging to many photographers as the uniqueness of this light requires some specialized knowledge to capture.
