Behind The Lens

Location
Pier 14, San Francisco.
Time
Sunset blue hour.
Lighting
Well I knew that the fog was rolling in over the hills so I figured it would be cool to have it as the backdrop 'softbox' for the city lights I was going to photograph. I also knew that the crescent moon was going to be in the direction I was shooting at. But I didnt expect to be exactly in the center of the pier walkway... so that was really nice ;) The fog rolling in diffused the lights on the top of the building & created a glowing effect. So in essence there were 3 light sources: the city lights, the moon, & the fading light of blue hour.
Equipment
Nikon D800, 14-24mm. Tripod mounted of course.
Inspiration
I knew the city lights look incredible from this location from previous visits, & I had envisioned to shoot when the fog was rolling in & moon was in the right position. I think the overall mood which represents SF well is what I wanted to achieve & is what inspired me.
Editing
Minor corrections in shadows, colors, & sharpness.
In my camera bag
D800 24-70mm 14-24mm 70-200mm ND filters Polarizer
Feedback
Look at others work to get the sense of the location, but try to capture it in a different light & condition to achieve your pre-visualized shots. Keep practicing... theres always something else to do or improve on. Learn how to work your particular camera VERY well so u can adjust settings fast in field! Good light doesnt wait!
