Nice work

Behind The Lens

Location
Manhattan Beach Pier in South California
Time
I think it was around 5:45ish in the morning
Lighting
Nothing really about the lighting, I just waited for just the right time when the Sun was just about to rise, so the sky had this kind of lazy blue you see early mornings.
Equipment
I used a Canon T6i with the 18-55mm kit lens. I used a super cheap tripod. I think it cost about $12 for the tripod.
Inspiration
I always wanted to take a long exposure shot. I was going for a sunset shot but then the pier just had a lot of people during those time, so I decided I might be able to get some alone time with the pier early morning. So I decided to wake up really early and drive to the pier. Just happy to be able to get to shot.
Editing
I'm a huge fan of Lightroom. Not a lot was done for the post-processing. Just a bit of sharpening for the pier. A few adjustments with the tint and the temperature.
In my camera bag
I normally have my ND filters. A 10-stop ND filter is a must for me. Extra batteries. A nice stable tripod. I finally had the money to buy a decent one from Amazon. Its one of those chinese brands, around $65 but so far I'm satisfied with the bad boy. I have my Canon 10-18mm lens for those wide angle landscape shots. And extra batteries.
Feedback
Shoot early, like right before the sun rises. Its less crowded and most of the time, its just you and beach or bridge or whatever you are shooting.
