There’s always a nervous excitement before something new begins, but it’s a great feeling.

Steadfast – Matador Beach // Los Angeles, California

I think I was struggling to shoot something completely interesting this night in northern LA… Even though the beach and sunset were great, I just wasn’t getting what I thought it could have been.

After the sun had set, I cranked up my F stop to try a bit of long exposure to settle out the crashing waves, and I really could have even gone a little longer than 30 seconds to really smooth everything out, but I liked the way the rocks looked with the thin mist of waves around them.
