Landscape Photography | San Francisco Dreaming
Landscape Photography | San Francisco Dreaming – This beautiful beach is located on the west side of the Golden Gate Bridge (Marshall’s Beach) and it’s the perfect spot to capture waves in motion against this iconic backdrop! As I made my way down the cliff to the shoreline, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The sunset was downright magical! I set up my tripod on the sand and got straight to work. The rushing waves caught the light from the sun and created this soft, almost dream-like effect. I used a .05 second exposure to smooth out the water and give the photo a silky smooth look. Once I found the perfect shutter speed and I was happy with my composition, I simply waited for the perfect moment to arrive while enjoying the sounds of the ocean.

To process this image, I used the Presetpro Creative Flow Lightroom Presets, Profiles, and Brushes (I used Lightroom Profiles included in The Creative Flow to color grade this image). Next, I created a copy of this image in Aurora HDR and used the Presetpro Aurora HDR Presets. Finally, I imported all images into Photoshop to blend and do a little sharpening.
