San Francisco: Shooting it Like a Pro
Golden Gate Bridge Tower
The few minutes between sunset and the onset of night are a photographer's best friend. During this narrow window of time, the light changes rapidly and dramatically. Out on the bridge at around 8 p.m. last September, Hoagland captured the rich indigo hue of the sky, offset by the powerful skylights that illuminate the bridge's stanchions. By using a relatively slow shutter speed (1/8 second), Hoagland enhanced the rich color of the dusky sky.
