Catching The Golden Hour

'Capturing a sunset with the Holga 120 GN'

The images here are the outcome of my outing to catch the Golden Hour, a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than at other times when the sun is higher.

These images were shot on the Holga 120 GN, scanned and tweak for Auto Tone Correction, Crop and Tilt Adjustment to adjust for scanning error, Brightness & Contrast, Gamma, Hue & Saturation, Sharpness & Blur, and Noise Reduction on the Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3).

The Holga 120 GN is a plastic, fixed-focus, medium format camera fitted with a 60mm zone focus, glass lens as designated by the GN model identification. It comes with only one shutter speed, 1/100th sec, and a selection of two aperture settings, f/8 and f/11. Also fitted is a flash hot shoe. A flash version of the camera is also available. The kit also comes with a stylish thin fabric strap, but not the black duct tape which is recommended for sealing up light leaks.

p.s. What you are seeing is a new set of images which have been sharpened with Sharpener Pro from Google Nik Collection. Thanks.
