Golden Hour Photography Competition

Golden Hour Photography Competition

April has come and gone, and the days are getting longer, so it’s time for another Photoion Competition. This time we’re going to be focusing on Golden Hour Photography.

What is “Golden Hour”?

The “Golden Hour” is the period of time just after sunrise, and just before sunset where the sun hangs low in the sky and casts that gorgeous Golden light that is softer than normal daylight.

The Golden Hour is a magical time and can be used to produce images that you just cannot get at any other time of the day.

This competition is going to be harnessing the power of the Golden Hour. Participants are free to choose their subject; they can be landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, or anything else you can think of. The only condition is that the image must be composed during that magical Golden Hour.


The best photo will win £100 gift voucher which can be redeemed against any of our courses and is valid until 31st December 2015
