THEME
If there’s one thing that can make or break a photograph more than any other, it’s lighting. In photography, the golden hour is the period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight has a soft diffused glow. It’s warm, dimensional, and just flat-out magical, and we can see why photographers swear by it. Show us THE GOLDEN HOURS through your perspective, any and all methods of capture and process are welcome.
