Not too long ago, I visited Dana Point Harbor on my way home from work. I was planning on shooting some time-lapse video, but I was pressed for time and decided to shoot some regular stills instead.
I made my way to the jetty, where there is beach access, and set up my tripod. Here's what I captured...
Here's the gear and settings I used for this photo:
- Canon 60D
- Tokina 11-16mm f2.8
- Davis and Sanford FM18 Fluid Head Tripod
- Focal Length: 11mm
- Shutter Speed: 20 Sec
- Aperture: f16
- ISO: 100
- Focus: Manual
- Drive mode: 2 second timer delay
- File format: Raw
Then in Photoshop, I used Adobe Camera Raw to process the photograph, and did a little dodging and burning to get the final image.
This is a great place to photograph. It has easy public access and there's a lot more to see and do in the area. There are also tide pools a little ways down the beach.
