Now you have discovered that your cell phone can take pretty good pictures, let’s take a look at the different types of light you work with during a day.

Photographers will usually take most of their photos during the “golden Hours”. The Golden Hours is the 1 hour before sunset, and 1 hour after sunrise. There are 2 reasons for this: 1- The light from the sun is somewhat of a “golden” tone to it and creates a warm pleasing color to everything you take photos of. And 2- the light from the sun creates a beautiful contrast as it shines diagonally at your subject:
