NOW it feels like October

Low humidity, cooler temps, a little mist in the ditches and on any bodies of water. This is what we've all been waiting for.

And as a photographer, my favorite time of the day is between 5:46 p.m. and 6:37 p.m. That's when the light takes on the gold tones that are so complimentary to peoples' faces and hair. Heck, even I'd look good in a photo at that time. A photo would be preferable to being in person, mostly because a photo doesn't make dumb jokes and bad, reaching puns.

agreed with the time of day for photos, like my prof. used to say "the best time to take photos is when the shadows are twice as long as the object." now if I can only get clients to realize this and keep them from wanting to take photos @ noon.

Another great time for photography is the time just prior to sunrise. Ken Rockwell and other pro photogs call it the "magic" time when colors often seem mystical. But for me, it would take some sort of magic just to get me out of bed at that time of day.

well, that explains it - why none of my pictures ever turn out right - 5:44 - that must be the WORST time to take pictures.
