The golden hours: sunrise and sunset


The golden hours is the most beautiful scenery of sunrise and sunset, this is where photographers have the opportunity to capture the best moment of the scene.

I took the image with one frame only. If I point the camera directly to the sun it will give me over or underexposed image and you will lose great detail, to avoid losing details in your image you need to balance your exposure.

There are two ways to do this, capture one overexpose image and one underexpose and blend it them in post process, the other way around is use GND filter or Graduated Neutral Density Filter by using these you don’t need to blend two exposures in post process, you just need to take one image.

Remember: your camera cannot capture two different exposures with one image, this is only possible by using GND Filter.
