Project Description

Photograph Your Own "Golden Hour" and "Blue Hour" Landscapes

ASSIGNMENT

Create your own "golden hour" and "blue hour" landscape photographs.  

This assignment will teach you how to achieve a pre-conceived artistic vision, how to “see” light and understand how light changes the emotional connection of an image as well as how light changes the technical elements of a photograph such as color, contrast, brightness and shadow.  

The goal is to visualize the mood and feeling of a place through the exploration of light.
