Golden hour generator…

Well, Amanda Emily has done it again…the techno-geek queen has a calculator that will give you times for the golden and blue hours in your area or any area you are traveling to.

The “Gold” is that time of day – dawn and dusk – when the sun is low and casts a golden light. “Blue” is the period right before dawn/after dusk when the sun is just below the horizon.

Those times are often the best times to shoot scenics or portraits. Knowing your timeframe for shoots can be a timesaver.

This seemingly simple site allows you to enter your location and the month you plan to shoot and then generates the dates for that month along with start/end times for gold and blue.

Now if she could only tie in a weather prediction so we’d know if it would rain or not…
