Most photographers are familiar with the concept of golden hour — the time just before sunrise or sunset when the light is at its warmest and softest, and absolutely perfect for any type of photography. This time is cherished by photo experts, and because it's such a short and fleeting thing, knowing exactly when it's occurring is very important. Blink your eyes and you'll miss it.
Lumy is a new app that helps photographers and videographers keep track of when exactly golden hour is occurring at any given location on any day. Enter your location manually or allow it to use your phone's GPS to acquire your current location, pick the day you're shooting from a simple calendar, and suddenly you're presented with a beautiful screen of all the pertinent information you need to be sure you don't miss golden hour — weather, humidity, cloudiness, duration, and more. Lumy can even be set to send you a push notification 30 mins, 1 hour, or 2 hours before golden hour begins. Very smart.
