One of the most important aspects of photography is using the right light for your pictures. Dawn and dusk are undeniably the best times for outdoor photography, the ‘golden hours’ before sunset and during the first light of the day will lift your images to the next level giving even the most ordinary view the extra edge. On family holidays it is difficult to concentrate on your photography, believe me I have been there !, but shooting at dawn and dusk when everyone else is either asleep or in the bar will give you the chance to get out there and get some shots in the bag. There is nothing wrong with shooting in the middle of the day either, some photographers scoff at the notion but shoot the right subject and you are on to a winner. Bold contrasty colours, shadows and shapes all work well at midday and polarised harbours will jump off the computer screen when you show them to the grandparents on your return.
