This time I’d like to tell you something about a cool app. It runs under Adobe AIR so you can use it on Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and other devices. It is called The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE). You can download it from here. And what it does?
It uses Google Maps with internet connection to give you all info about sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset. But not just times but also it shows you the direction! It is based on date and place so you can take a look on next week if you’re planning some trip. Let’s say I want to shoot some outdoor portraits on specific place and date. I’ll just put in that info and it will show me the time sun will set, give me info about direction, I can imagine where the sun will be positioned etc.
It is really useful app so check it out, it’s free. If you don’t like it, you can always delete it 😉
