Photo Tip ~  Get the right sunrise and sunset time for your photo shoot


I can’t think of much worse than missing a sunrise or sunset simply because you didn’t know the right time! There’s a great website that makes this very simple – Gaisma. Simply select your location, check the date, and your times will be posted. The chart also displays twilight windows, sun path diagrams, plus a really cool real-time sun/shade map of the world. Check it out before heading out to get your next sunrise or sunset masterpiece. By the way, the two little hick-ups in the chart are the daylight savings time switch. Kinda cool in a geeky I-love-chart-data kinda way.

Also, If you want to know where the sun (or moon) will break the horizon, be sure to check out the Photographer’s Ephemeris.
