Capturing Golden Images
Most of my images were captured very early in the morning, or late in the afternoon, close to, during, or after the sunset. The reason is because of the colors present in those times. During peak sunlight times, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, (more like 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM in Maine because it is so far East of the rest of the US), the light tends to have a bluish cast. Early morning light often has a golden glow. If you have ever wondered why the colors that you see in the early morning do not match the photos that you have, look no further than the camera setting called “White Balance.” If it is on “Auto” (as it often is), this will often remove color tints so that a white is a true white, rather than have a tint of golden color. Try setting it to “Daylight” or “Cloudy,” and see what happens to your sunrise images.
