When is the best light for portraits? No. 2

Tonight I went out a bit later. About 1/2 and hour later. I walked to 4 different locations in close proximity to each other. Varying results again. The sun drops so fast. I suppose that should be taken into consideration when thinking out the plan. I also think that the amount of sunlight getting into my camera is causing it to struggle to focus?? An additional thought: baby’s are hungry, tired and not into sitting for portraits at golden hour. I will need more experiments. These are from tonight’s haul.

  1. I live in the East Coast and as of right now the best light for me has been between 7am and 8am as well as 5:30 to 6:30. We have done about 6 portrait sessions in the last two weeks during these times and I love the images we were able to capture.

    1. In South Australia we are about to move into our summer day light saving time so my best evening time is now 6:30-7:30/8ish. Its getting pretty late for babies. I might have to stick to babies in shade 🙂 Sun is coming up around 5am so tomorrow that will be 6am which is more reasonable, but still not all that practical for babies 🙂 Happy to hear you are enjoying your work. I am still not happy with the photos I am taking so its practise, practise, practise for me!

I appreciate your thoughts and feedback.
