Morning Color Shift


It’s been a while since I took the time to actually go out and shoot with my camera. What better way to return than to wake up 3:30 in the morning to pack my gear for an adventure to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Having come here often, I was always “unlucky” because I almost always had clear skies. I found it to get boring, but I suppose things began to change. This first frame was taken at roughly 5a.m. The mix of blues and ambient street lights really attracted me. As the sun started to rise, the yellows and blues began to collide to make for interesting photographs.

I love how colors collide and mesh together to form interesting hues and tones. I love color shifts, as one color begins to overcome another one. I love how the colors begin to stain the clouds and the fog. It’s so exciting and it’s what inspires me wanting to do more color photography rather than my usual black and white film.
