Take night shots at the blue hour

When it comes to photography, lighting is everything. After all, a camera simply records the light that hits its sensor.

So, you can take better photos simply by taking them at a different time.

For example, don't take photos outside at high noon. The light will wash out your subjects. You'll get deep shadows and blown out highlights.

Rather, take your photos in the morning or early evening. The light won't be as harsh; you'll get beautiful, dreamy photos.

Of course, many photographers love to shoot at night. This is perfect for cityscapes and similar photographs. But here's a secret: Many night photos aren't taken at night.

They're taken during the blue hour, the "hour" between daylight and dark. The term comes from the French l'heure bleu; it's just a better name for twilight.

The blue hour doesn't occur at a set time. It changes depending on the time of year and your location.

So, to take photos during the blue hour, you'll need a little help. That's where today's Cool Site comes in. It will tell you the perfect time for blue hour photography. Happy shooting!
