Magic Hour by DrewHopper Magic Hour by DrewHopper
Coastline enveloped by sea spray during the golden hour, after an afternoon shower.

Golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day. Typically the lighting is more diffused because the sun is near the horizon, so the sunlight travels through more of the atmosphere, reducing its intensity.

In 3 years I don't think I've seen any photographer make the leaps and bounds you have. Quantum leaps. Everytime I log back into Deviantart (usually every 6 months or so) your new work just blows me away. AMAZING stuff! wow.

Always pushing my limits, has ended fatal when I lost my camera to the ocean. Worth it though, thanks mate!

thats a savage burn. I like how you've countered with a profile pic in which the camera is submerged in water. Maybe an opportunity to step up to a full frame? 5d MII's are down to 2K US and under now and the specs on the new Canon 1Dx are insane. So is the price, unfortunately, but it could be worth it. Especially for someone with your talent.

Way ahead of you mate, bought the 5D2 straight after my loss. I'm loving it, something I should have done years ago :)

lee-orr Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011
beauty. I've shot with it a few times and loved it. I haven't decided whether or not to take the MII plunge, or just scrimp, save and wait a year or so for the Mark III.

wow incredible photo, also how do you get slow shutter speed without getting a whiteout picture? i think it may just be my camera/lense is very light sensitive or something but on iso 100 and even with a ND4 i cant go past about 1/8th of a second so im very miffed. any help would be great thanks.

Stop your aperture down as small as it goes, so the smaller the aperture the higher the f-number for example f/11, f/16 or f/22 are small apertures...

RXW-Photography Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
yeah ive tried that, at 100 iso at a high f number and a ND4! its very frustrating. i can use other cameras and get the effect i want in a few seconds with no washout. i have a sony alpha 350K dunno if that has some sort of known high light sensitivity. suppose it must help in fast photography.
