Magic Hour (Photography as pastime)
The term "Magic Hour" refers to the blue hour in which the world appears new and different every second. In nature, this time triggers an uplifting feeling when viewed. As a classic table top exercise I produced around 100 different lighting moods. To produce a set for the picture somthing which catches the light is needed: It is only a crumpled paper from the torn off photo background, placed in front of a White Diffusion (Lee foil stretched on a 2x1m frame), all consumables that can be found in my photo studio. One may say Landscape.
Please see our artistic research project which was developed from this work. www.intra-magic-hour.at
