Some pictures of my California trip that I missed and had not yet posted. Coronado is a beautiful spot, and for my last night in California, was worth being there for the sunset.
I used (over used) my Singh Ray filters, creating color, contrast and light separation. The Blu 'n Gold filter creates blues and golds, the A13 adds a bit of red-pink warmth, the Sunset Strip adds a layer of gold-pink to the clouds and sky, the split neutral density filters hold back some of the sky brightness to keep the darker foreground and the brighter sky in better balance, and the color intensifier ups the earth tones.
I know, I know. You can use too much makeup, right? Ahh, it was the last night of my first ever photo trip/visit to California, and I perhaps got carried away.
Use a tripod, the sun will set quickly and long shutter speeds will be required.
Thanks for looking,
Chris Kiez, a hardcore photographer since the 80's, learned to take a picture before the age of selfies and cell phone photography, training on mechanical cameras and film. After years of taking photos of all manner of subjects and people, he did over a 10 year stint as a crime scene photographer on two continents. Now, he does portrait and landscape photos, and is currently distressing the world with his relentlessly, excruciatingly boring blogging. To buy what you see on this site, click here!
