The famous Lombard Street in San Francisco was not as easy to shoot as expected due to the cars turning into spectators, but it was quite entertaining being in what seemed like an amusement park on the street!

Amazing quality of light trails. Cars coming down Lombard Street move quite slowly for obvious reasons.

We always took guests here when we lived in SF.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the famous Lombard Street in San Francisco, California
Time
This was taken in the late evening on a winter night where the crisp cool air helped bring some definition to the image.
Lighting
The biggest challenge with this street is that the cars move at varying paces depending on whether it is a sightseer or a taxi. After dozens of attempts, I finally got a full trail without any car in the frame.
Equipment
This was taken ultra wide with my Nikon 14-24mm and a D750.
Inspiration
Lombard Street is just a wonderful location to see, being able to photograph it is always fun. To find unique angles and compositions is a limited situation. Trying to find angles that isn't seen all over the internet is what makes it fun.
Editing
All processing done in Lightroom with minor adjustments. Single frame, no composite.
In my camera bag
A Nikon and Olympus photographer. Lowepro Tripod. Fotodiox filter system.
Feedback
Be patient. Moving slowly and evaluating every nook and cranny helps. Popular places are popular for a reason, that doesn't mean to stay away. It just means to execute well you have to look for those beneficial nuances.
