When to find the right lighting

IMG_6985Now that we’ve taken a few photos for our blog, we’ve come to pick up a few tips and wanted to pass along one to fellow bloggers.  The best portrait lighting we’ve come by has been right before sunset, what can be deemed as the golden hour.  The sun is almost right across from the subject and not creating any dark shadows.  This time of day also adds a dramatic flare to your surroundings.  Be careful though, you must work fast!  Once the sun starts dropping it only seems to move faster.
