This App for Photographers Sets an Alarm for the Golden Hour

Rizon is a photography app that can identify and remind photo enthusiasts of the timing of the golden hour around the world.

Sometimes called the magic hour in cinematography, the golden hour is the time -- beloved of photographers -- just after sunrise or before sunset. During the golden hour, light is softer and redder as compared to times when the sun is higher in the sky and casts a soft, ethereal light over photographers' and cinematographers' subjects.

The Rizon app not only automatically calculates the timing of the golden hour based on the user's location but also sends the user a notification to remind them to get outside and photograph. This can be just the extra dose of motivation needed to go outside and capture those moments of glowing magic.
