It´s known to photographers that the hours before sunset and after sunrise are very good to shoot. Yellowish light, mostly before sunset, longer and distinguishable shadows make this special hour: sunrise-10:00 and 17:00-sunset.

They´re also a good opportunity to use your redscale film, purchased or homemade (to know how to make redscale film read this article). The yellowish light of the pre-sunset can produce interesting effects on redscale films:

But beyond that, I got surprised with the effect that this light produces when you shoot the sky with clouds on redscale film! It´s like a world in flames reflected in the sky!
