Photography App Predicts Where and When Natural Light Will Occur

An update to the much loved Photographer’s Ephemeris sun-tracking app allows users, in essence, to watch a sunrise or sunset from the future—anywhere in the world. Known as the Photographer’s Ephemeris 3D, the photographic assistance tool predicts where light will land on the ground—including shadows and other nuances—helping anyone looking to plan and prepare for a landscape photo shoot. The app breaks tracking down by the second and casts sunlight, moonlight and even starlight atop a 3D map with striking accuracy. It’s currently available in the iOS app store for $20 in most nations, rolling out everywhere on 27 June. An upgrade pricing plan is also in development.
