Awesome

Behind The Lens

Location
Huntington Beach
Time
Sunset
Lighting
The sun was behind the clouds and just peaked out before sundown. I moved to mostly obscure it while stopping down the aperture to get the cool star effect. The shadows of the pilings even add to the effec more. Time exposure to give the cool water effect.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mk IV on a tripod with a wide zoom.
Inspiration
It is a combination of a few things I've been working on, time exposures and starbursts. I've been shooting a lot of piers etc too, so this is kind of a mish-mash of a lot of ideas.
Editing
Just a little Lightroom massaging, nothing major.
In my camera bag
Always a tripod, a few ND filters, a wide angle lens and a lot of patience and inspiration.
Feedback
A tripod is a must since time exposure require stillness/ A remote trigger (or time) helps reduce camera shake. Hiding the sun behind something with just a bit showing then stopping down the aperture will create the cool starburst/flare.
