Hi Valued Costumers!
We here at SuStudios would like to give you some tips and tricks on how to have a successful photoshoot! In this series we will focus on how to schedule the PERFECT Date and Time. To start this off, we want to say that WE’RE NATURAL LIGHT SPECIALISTS. What that means is that we believe that natural light, from the sun and its reflections, creates photographs that feel fresh, timeless and truest to you.
We begin all portrait sessions two hours before the scheduled sunset during “the golden hour,” when the light is the dreamiest and everything is golden. To determine when golden hour is use a sunset calculator online to determine the scheduled sunset for the date and location you’d like to do your session. Then, just subtract x-amount of hours to figure out the start time of your session. Remember, the sun sets much earlier during the colder months of the year and much later during the warmer months, so make sure to factor that in when choosing your portrait session date.
If you’re planning on taking off work or have evening plans afterward make sure to plan a buffer of time when getting ready so you can arrive a few minutes early to your session and be ready to start on time. We’re only able to shoot when natural light is still in the sky, so we’ll want to take advantage of every minute we have together before the sun goes down.
