These were taken in Bald Head Island, a little place off the coast of North Carolina that doesn’t allow cars. Everyone is on golf carts or bikes, sea turtles are (protected) neighbors, and the stars shine 100xs brighter because of light laws.

It’s a beautiful place without any doubt. I love what a bright sunset will do to the lighting in my photos. Loved these shots.

Golden Hour on the Beach

The hour before sunset and the hour after sunrise is known as the “golden hour” among photographers. It’s when the lighting is the absolute best. I can’t tell you how much this was stressed during my photography and sense of place course. It’s a nice thing to keep in mind while your shooting around this year.
