Fort Point Photo Walk

A big thank you to everyone who participated in today’s Camera West Fort Point Photo Walk. Despite gray skies and a threat of rain, 11 shooters showed up to explore the photogenic fort beneath the south anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The brick architecture and symmetry throughout the historic Fort Point offered everyone a great opportunity to work on composition and the study of light and shadows. Below are a few photos from our morning photo walk. All photos taken with a Canon 1D-X, 24-70 f2.8 L, processed through Adobe Lightroom 4.0 and Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2.

Next month’s photo walk is at De La Salle High School in Concord where we will have sideline access to shoot a night soccer game. Contact Michael at Camera West in Walnut Creek to sign up.
