TTD- Better in morning or afternoon?

Recommended Posts

What time of day did you do your TTD pictures- morning or late afternoon (around 5). What time would you recommend and what are the advantages/disadvantages that you saw with that time of day?

Besides sleeping in, I am not sure what the advantages would be to doing it later around 5huh.gif

Thanks for the help!

I was wondering the same thing:-)

 

(MAYBE early in the morning or evening there would be fewer people around...? As for lighting, not sure what would be better...)

 

Anyone? :-)

I was just wondering the same thing...

 

One thing I have liked from some girls' sessions is the kind of wild hair look...like they took their wedding hair down and had fun on their wedding night and then got up to take the pics and didn't necessarily fix their hair again...wow, that was a ramble...:)

haha, good in theory, but in my case that didn't work! since I had an updo, and lots of hairspray to keep it in place, once I took out all the bobby pins it was a disaster. so I had to wash it, dry it and curl it. But the humidity and then the water destroyed it pretty fast.

we did ours in the morning for the lighting and to avoid crowds. But I think in terms of lighting it's only good at sunrise. No way was I getting up that early teh day after my wedding (we were leaving the next day so had to be that day) so we aimed for 8am. I don't think 8am lighting is much different than later in the day. I could be mistaken though.

They call the first and the last hour of sunlight the golden hour for photography. Very rarely do I have clients that want to take advantage of the morning golden hour, so it is usually late afternoon that we go for. Outside of the golden hours you also have a couple of hours that are pretty good. The main thing is you want the light coming from a certain direction and not directly over head.

We did early morning. We were actually on the beach at 6:00 AM.

 

DH hated me, but the photos I've seen are fantastic!!!!

Jeremy's right - first hour or last.

 

As far as the color of the water, it all depends on which coast you're on.

 

East Coast - water is blue/turquoise in evening because the sun is setting over land, and the water is "shimmery"/reflective of the light in the morning because the sun is rising over the water - so when you look towards the sun - the color of the water is not blue.

 

Vice Versa for the west coast.

 

If the coast faces south or north like some islands, then the color of the water will be both - depending which direction you look. Look at the sun and the water is reflective - look away from the sun the water is blue.

 

I think the biggest advantage of shooting in the morning is the lack of people - also, for Becks' pictures - her hair "held" overnight, and it still looked good in the morning.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
