DPA Composition in the Field: The Golden Gate Bridge

Saturday April 30th  – 2pm – 6pm

How many times have you driven across the Golden Gate Bridge thinking that you have got to get some pictures of this iconic landmark and never manage to quite get to it. An expedition is just the thing! There are thousands of potential compositions there that would offer numerous opportunities for your photographic interpretation.

Bridge at Blue Hour

The class will assemble at the north end of the bridge at the first car park on Conzelman Rd. It is pretty busy there so you should try to be early. From there, we’ll proceed to the bridge on the east side and walk the length of it and back. It can be gusty on the bridge so please bring a windbreaker. It is also very noisy on the span itself, so you also might want to bring earplugs to cut out the ambient road din.

You should end up back at the headlands closer to sunset for those powerful shots of the western side glowing bright red.

Topics covered will be composition, depth of field, image compression, macro photography and polarization. So grab your walking shoes, your kit and your polarizer and join us for this expedition!,
