For sunrises and sunsets, checking tools like Golden Hour app can help, but remember: weather changes constantly so you might go to sleep with a great weather forecast and wake up to less-than-ideal conditions.
Don’t forget to click the button to get the Sky and Light index for either sunrise or sunset.
I love the honest text “due to the missing cloud cover it will be a boring photo” (so true).
For overnights, don’t forget to factor the moon which can really change the look.
The moon isn’t even a full moon on the left photo. Plus, in my lazy indoor time-lapses, the moon caused my window’s reflection to show.
