The ones who are learning photography or are a professional photographer, each one of them acknowledges the fact that photography is all about light. Light is so important for photography that the quality of light can convert an otherwise average looking photo into a stunning one. One hour session in the morning and in the evening, which is popularly called as the ‘Magic Hour’ is one of the best times for the photographer to click photos. As the sun is low and near the horizon, it provides a warm glow, as a result of which photos clicked during this ‘Golden Hour’ turn out into a stunning set of pictures.
