Tip #26: Get Used to Being Up Before the Sun

October 14, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

As I mentioned in the previous tip, my preference is to be up and out taking pictures at the first light of the day. That means I don't sleep in very often (but I have discovered the beauty of mid-day naps).

The best pictures are taken in morning light when the cold of the night meets the warming light of the sun. Animals start to stir for the day or might be coming back from an evening of hunting. And clouds linger in the sky before the sun of the day has a chance to burn them off.

Sunset can also produce some interesting light and clouds but I have found that I run into more traffic, more people and less wildlife activity later in the day.

So enjoy this special time of day and get used to being up before the sun. Remember to budget plenty of time to get to your destination. Or better yet, drive up the night before and car camp at your photo spot.
