In the old days I had to go to the local newspaper to get the times for sunrise and sunset for the year. Then came internet and sites with that information. Today we have a fantastic tool in the application Darkness for iPhone. It’s the perfect tool in planning times for shoots with clients etc. I teach all over the world and in planning outdoors demonstrations I can see exactly when the sun goes up or down that exact day++
One feature I really like is how it tell you when Noon is, it is seldom at 12pm. Last year on a workshop I did in London I remember it was at 1:27pm. I love to photograph in midday sun so I did my demo for that then, not at 12:00.
A special ‘Current Location’ city can also be used, which tracks your position using GPS, giving you sunrise, sunset and other information for exactly wherever you may be.
NEWS. We just set a time for the next Photographing People Part 1 Class here in Utah. Saturday July 31st.
