Timing is everything.
So recently I posted my little guide to 2016 and you’ll notice the emphesis around booking times. For the best light (therefore best photos) it is better to schedule your portrait shoot around Golden hour (2 hours post sunset). Understandably, however this isn’t always possible and if the sun isn’t shining then 2 hours before sunset light levels are going to be low anyway.
You can also see the importance now of turning up on time to your booking! With only 2 hours of light, it surprisingly diminishes very quickly.
Maximise the most of your shoot.. it’s your money, your memories.
By the way, for those interested the image associated with this post (below) was one single shot - no retakes, no fancy tricks, just, well.... timing is everything.
