A First Timer

As a first timer visiting the Golden Gate Bridge…my breath was taken away and replaced with an exhale that lasted all night long. It is a powerful and almost magical place to visit. Hanson Fong drove us out to his favorite shooting location of the bridge. Set to a long exposure and using Hanson’s tripod I was able to get this shot and a few more (I’ll share later). I took Hanson’s private workshop class last week in San Francisco. It was worth the drive and the cost! More to come on San Francisco and the workshop soon.
