Golden Hours: The Gentle Brushstrokes of Nature

To achieve a painterly effect, choose the golden hours, which occur just after sunrise or prior to sunset.

Professional landscape photographers adhere to these hours in order to capture scenes in soft, flattering light.

This methodology presents enticing silhouettes and protracted shadows, thereby presenting a dramatic and enigmatic intermezzo. Although experimentation is essential, potential loss of subject detail should be considered.
