Description: \"The blue hour comes from the French expression l\'heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day.\" [Wikipedia]
The blue hour shots are NOT night shots. Capturing the very moment of light and dark switching places (usually it lasts for just a few minutes), can bring you some very special photographs. The magical light, the strong contrast between the deep blue natural light and the warm yellow/orange artificial lights, are the key ingredients for this kind of photography.
You can\'t shoot blue hour scenes without a tripod, just as you can\'t shoot night scenes without a tripod.
