Blue Hour Photography

Blue Hour Photography
This is a Blue Hour Photography guide and assignment for Light & Landscape Premium Subscribers.

Blue Hour is the time frame that precedes sunrise and follows sunset.

It is so named for the blue tones that occur in the sky as it transitions from full darkness through sunrise and sunset to full darkness.

Officially, blue hour is part of the time frame called “civil twilight” and occurs when the sun is between -6 and -4 degrees below the horizon

It typically lasts about 30-40 minutes but that can vary depending on conditions and geographic location.
