Photographers often refer to the last hour before sunset as “Magic Hour”. The light falls so prettily on everything and you can get some really neat shadows and effects with the sun. It’s one of my favorite times to shoot portraits, but I was lacking a model so I figured I’d finally take pictures of my car!
I love the lens flare in this shot! I think they make pretty, colorful accents to photos, especially ones taken during Magic Hour.
This is also a great time to capture the eastern sky as well as the more obvious western sky, as it is usually very blue. If you’re lucky enough to live on the East side of Portland, you can probably see beautiful Mount Hood if you look east!
I missed that view like you wouldn’t believe!
I’m thinking I’ll name my car either Farrah or Fawna. Now that you’ve seen her, what do you guys think?
