You really feel like a rock star when you learn the “Blue Hour” technique of photography. It is not very difficult. These few considerations will get you on your way.
- The optimum time to get the great balance of artificial and ambient light is between 30 and 45 minutes before sunrise and after sunset.
- A tripod is essential.
- Look for scenes that have some kind of artificial light(warm) to balance and compliment the blue ambient light of the sky. During the day when you are out exploring, train yourself to look for interesting blue hour compositions and look for the artificial light sources that will illuminate the scene at night. Many tourist attractions are illuminated at night.
