Krissy at the Golden Hour
Posted on April 17, 2021 Posted by John Scalzi 11 Comments
The “Golden Hour,” i.e., roughly the hour before sunset, is often a photographer’s favorite time of the day to shoot, because the light is flattering and the shadows are not directly up and down. I took this picture of Krissy during the golden hour yesterday. It supports the thesis reasonably well. Also, it’s one of my favorite pictures of Krissy that I’ve ever taken, so there’s that as well.
Beautiful subject, beautiful shot. You are a lucky man, Scalzi.
It is a beautiful picture of a beautiful woman.
A friend of mine spent a week in northern Norway a couple summers ago. All her photos were amazing; I realized it’s always golden hour there! (Except winter, when it’s always night.)
You take such good pictures. (Sigh with envy.) Of course, with Chrissy, you have such a good subject.
You write good, you photograph good, I suppose you play fourteen musical instruments good. (Sigh.)
I play 14 musical instruments, yes. I play exactly one of them well (the drums).
Beautiful photo.. she’s so lovely! And it’s obvious you have the love filter on your camera. There is more to a good photograph than the instrument.. the artistry and emotion of the photographer makes the difference!
It also helps that the subject clearly loves the photographer.
When you have the love filter on your camera, every hour is golden.
Echo the comments. On a personal note, I have chosen to let my hair be natural, which means I am now going grey. I always get a boost from photos of Krissy, who is so beautiful with her natural hair. So please tell her thank you from another woman, for not only being her own natural self, but allowing you to post her portrait.
Lovely photograph. Is Krissy the inspiration for any of your characters?
