DIY [#37] ~ Received & Installed Rhino-Rack Pioneer LED Light Brackets today, 12/23

Photo Van, nearly ready to move & shoot

I had the Flood Cube mounting arms powder coated. I like it better than the “ugly” rubberized paint that I hid with split-loom tubing

Timing & Length

twiligh-phasesThe duration of each twilight phase depends on the latitude and the time of the year. In locations where the Sun is directly overhead at noon – for example at the Equator during the equinoxes – the Sun traverses the horizon at an angle of 90°, making for swift transitions between night and day and relatively short twilight phases. For example, in Quito, Ecuador, which is very close to the Equator, civil twilight begins only about 21 minutes before sunrise during the equinoxes.

At higher latitudes, in both hemispheres, the Sun’s path makes a lower angle with the horizon, so the twilight phases last longer:

My DIY Camera Stand with the Platypod Pro Max shifted a few inches forward to give more clearance to the MP-360 Pan/Tilt Head. It can now rotate in a complete circle. I used two Lume Cubes for lighting.
