Killer Dana – Landscape Photography in Dana Point

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:

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.
