Picture this:

A vibrant sunset painting the sky with shades of red and orange, the crashing waves adding a rhythmic soundtrack to the scene, and in the midst of it all, a striking figure with a fiery red beard that seems to echo the hues of the setting sun. This was the captivating setting for a viking-inspired sunset photoshoot with Tim, skillfully captured by Jenn McGee Photography.

The location of the shoot was at the beach, where the frothy waves clashed dramatically against the rocks. The timing was perfect, with the splash of the waves synchronizing beautifully with the shutter clicks. The sight was nothing short of mesmerizing, as Tim's red beard added a unique element of character to the scene.

Planning a sunset photoshoot requires careful preparation and timing. The 'golden hour', which is typically the last hour of light before sunset, is considered ideal for such shoots. It is during this time that the sunlight softens, casting a warm glow that can add a magical touch to your photos​.

It's important to arrive early at the location, at least 20-30 minutes before the planned start time. This allows you to scout the area, assess the best spots for shooting, and set up before the golden light begins to wane​.

As the light changes rapidly during the golden hour, having a plan for your shoot is crucial. Start with shooting in shady spots while the sun is still bright. As the light softens, you can move on to capturing shots with the sun in the frame, filtered through the trees or other elements. The last few moments of the sunset are perfect for silhouette shots, followed by the soft, beautiful light of dusk.
