The Golden Hour is well known in photography, that time around sunrise or sunset where the world is bathed in a golden, almost magical glow, and every photograph looks like a vintage image made with Kodak Gold in the 1970s.
Ideally any of us might wait and watch at the window for the ideal light and weather, before we then venture out to explore with our cameras for as long as this beautiful light holds.
But in reality, our inability to control the light and weather, plus any number of other responsibilities, means in fact that any time out with a camera is golden time, such is its preciousness.
In the last year or so, my own previously established rhythms have changed, both going out to make photographs, editing the images, and writing about photography.
I’m doing less of all of these activities, which I’m working towards increasing again, such is their value.
How about you? How and when do you make time for the different aspects of photography in your life, what works best for you? Has this changed in the last 18 months?
