What You'll Do
It's known among photographers as "the golden hour"—that stretch of twilight when the sky fills with the warm colors of sunset and the earth becomes a dreamscape of gossamer-soft light and dynamic shadows. To capture this magical time of day with a camera, it takes a delicate balance of exposure, depth of field, and light sensitivity. Professional photographer Bryan Tan helps you achieve that balance. Bring along your camera and tripod for a stunning twilight photo shoot along the shores of Treasure Island.
