There’s a special time of day that photographers refer to as the ‘magic hour’. It has little to do with card tricks but never less is as mesmerising. The ‘magic hour’ is the special time of the day when the sun is setting low in the sky and has real warmth to its colour. Fashion and beauty photographers love to shoot models at this time of day since it enhances their natural beauty and radiant skin tones.
Well it’s no different for animal and pet photographers and especially suitable if you have the chance to photograph an impressive chestnut coloured horse. The warm of the sun really enriches the deep browns and red undertones making the horse look all the more impressive. It certainly is a sight to behold.
We last week Whiskers Pet Photography was lucky enough to be asked to shoot just such a special horse before he went off to spend the rest of his days in leisurely retirement. The owner had watched known the horse since birth and wanted a special set of images to record the beautiful animal before she lost daily contact.
If you live in and around the Thames Valley or somewhere in between Buckinghamshire and Surrey and own a horse then why not consider asking Whiskers Pet Photography to come along one sunny evening and let us photography your favourite animal or pet during the magical golden hour that animal photographers really love.
