iOS: We all know that golden hour is the hour before sunset and the hour after sunrise when lighting is great for photography. There’s a bit more nuance to it than that, and this app helps photographers optimise golden hour to get the best possible pics.
GoldenHour.One is $5.99, but it comes in handy for photographers or anyone who wants to beef up their skills behind the camera. Sure, it’s easy enough to just head outside around sunset, but this app pins down exactly when sunset and sunrise are on any given day, shows you the exact position of the sun based on the time of year, accounts for cloudy skies, and tells you exactly how long golden hour (and blue hour) will last. It even tells you the best position to take photos based on your location.
Via the app’s website:
GoldenHour.one knows ahead of the time your chance for a good photo. It is able to predict the light and sky indexes from local weather forecast anywhere in the world.
- SkyIndex – will show you chance for dramatic sky.
- LightIndex – shows a chance for portraits landscape and architecture.
When taking photos of sunrise or sunset, you need the sun in the right position. To achieve this, you need to find the right place to take the pictures. With GoldenHour.One, all you need to do is to move the pin from place to place, to find the best spot….
