WESLACO- Lighting and timing usually go hand in hand when it comes to setting up live shots. There is a small sliver of time in a day that can make lighting conditions perfect.

The golden hour is a term describing when the sun is ready to set into the horizon. CHANNEL 5 photojournalist Carlos Mendoza says it's the best time to shoot.

"I always take advantage of this moment in the day. Especially when our newscast live shots coincide with the golden moment," says Mendoza

The lighting conditions don't last long.
