Just had my first ever chance to shoot at sunset. I have never used the “golden hour” before. Mainly due to the lack of sun here, and a distinct lack of willing models.
But tonight I got to play with my camera .and dragged an unwilling daughter out to the meadow opposite our home. I learnt lots about light and my new camera.
Tasmin had just sat on the rug at the very beginning of our shoot. We heard the gate open to the meadow, and in shot a very bouncy, huge black dog. We both took a sharp intake of breath, as we are both scared of dogs. But luckily he was more scared of us.
This turned out to be one of the few unposed images and was my absolute favourite from the shoot.
So thank you huge, bouncy dog for scaring us shitless.
