I love sunset shoots. The golden hour (well really minutes) are so beautiful. The shoot was all natural no strobes. I knew I wanted to shoot in central park, but for some reason the day did not start out so well.
I got into central park around three, and it was an overcast day which usually would be great. This was not the case on this day. No matter what I tried I could not get the look I had envisioned. I wanted that toned down fall look. The spots I was trying did not have the right light they were too bright in one section and too dark in others. The area was right, but that was about it.
After about two hour of walking around shooting, and not getting the results I was look for it was time to pack it up for the day. I started to walk back through the park to the car when I noticed this little area that had the perfect golden touch of light I was looking for.
I was like oh snap! there it is the light I was searching for all day. I knew I had a few mins to shoot so i got to work. The race against the clock was so exciting. The sun was setting really fast, we must have done at least thirty poses in like five minutes. I can't even explain how much fun it was after a day of trying and failing.
