Ideas for your next impromptu shoot!

Natural light is amazing for taking photos—it's everyone's best weapon to capture that perfect selfie. That said, we can probably all agree that shots taken at the golden hour—or that short sliver of time before the sun goes down—gives everything, including yourself, a soft glow that you can't get at any other time of day. So the next time you catch it with a camera in hand, it's best to be prepared. Here are a few ideas and tips to cop from local celebrities' feeds!

1. Nothing beats an impromptu rooftop shoot when the golden hour beam is on full blast. Lather on your sunscreen and wear specs like Kathryn Bernardo to shield your eyes from the glare!

2. Don't have a rooftop? The lighting from your balcony should do.

3. If you can't handle full-on sun exposure, find a comfortable corner that cuts the light in half. Look away from the sun to keep a relaxed expression!

4. Shadows aren't all that bad if they actually frame the shot well. Strike a pose like Kyline Alcantara and shoot your own little fashion editorial.

5. If you're stuck in traffic and the perfect light hits your car window, how can you not take that shot?

6. When you're at the beach, squeeze in a photo sesh just before sunset to get the most flattering and (not to mention non-blinding) beam for a sandy selfie.

7. Sporting an accessory, say a straw hat like Nadine Lustre's, will cast a cool shadow on your skin at the right angle!

8. Capture your eyes at their brightest by braving the glare like Yassi Pressman.

9. The grass is definitely greener during golden hour, so if you don't mind dusting off your outfit for the 'gram, then take cues from Sofia Andres.

10. In case you didn't already know, that 5 p.m. sun can give you that instant "glass skin" look in photos, and Jinkee Pacquiao has the proof below.
