Hey everyone!

From here on, we will post new assignments on Tuesdays and the previous work will be due on Mondays.

For this week,

  1. Complete the assignment GOLDEN HOUR!

If you did finish, submit 5 more! Using the Lightroom App is excellent practice.

Miss you all !

Golden Hour

In photography, the golden hour is the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky. The period of time shortly before sunrise and shortly after sunset is called the “magic hour,” especially by cinematographers.
