Most photographers will tell you that the best time to take nice photos outdoors is during sunrise and sunset: The Golden Hour.
I work from my apartment in Chiang Mai, overlooking the city with a view on the Doi Suthep mountain. I’m often facing the window with this beautiful view. Every evening, I can’t help but grab my camera when the sun sets with beautiful clouds casting long shadows in the sky. I probably have tons of sunset photos from this same viewpoint on cloudy days or clear skies.
What do you think?
When composing within your viewfinder, try to find leading lines that lead straight to the main subject. Sidewalks and trees for example can help point towards the main subject you want to show.
