The “Other” Magical Hour
Blue Light Moods
by Lindsay Adler

But many photographers don’t realize that there is another magical time—the blue hour. Twilight creates a stunning phenomenon when the sky records on camera as a deep and saturated blue. In the time after sunset and before total darkness you can capture this stunning effect that adds drama and impact to your images.
