San Francsico, CA – Ferry Building

San Franciscio, CA - Ferry Bldg at nite

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR

Here is a photo of the Ferry Building at nite in San Francisco, CA.    I was eager to try a nite shot here and walked around for while trying to find the right angle this one evening.   I walked down a  quiet pier and set my tripod and cable release up for this long exposure.  I tried a few settings and this one worked the best!   The exposure was 10 seconds at f/11.   Such long exposures add additonal light to the photo and also can create nice silky water!    I do prefer taking blue hour photos…if I can recall this shot was taken around 10 PM.    Night shots can be tricky….just keep trying different settings and see what works best!   Don’t forget…with a DSLR…bring your tripod for after dark photos!   Enjoy your nite!
