The first subject of the night photography eclass I am taking was on capturing the “blue hour”. The course gave detailed instructions on how to accomplish this and I found the old Syracuse Savings Bank building on Clinton Square to be an ideal subject.
The Blue Hour never lasts an hour. Think of it as Nature’s Happy Hour. It comes and goes based on many factors but always occurs AFTER sunset.
Next time you are out photographing a sunset, do not leave after the Sun goes below the horizon. No matter the weather, the time of blue comes and it is a magical time to do photography.
