Golden Gate Bridge Beautifully Blanketed in Fog


San Francisco-based photographer Daniel Pivnick loves taking photos of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge when it is beautifully blanketed in fog. Why? “The main reason is because of the mood it creates, which to me, is a subdued, and mysterious tone,” he explains to us. “It also feels like I could be standing on an island, completely separated from the urban center just a few miles away. But I think the most compelling reason is that the fog is never the same, which means that each time I come away with a different image with a different feel to it.”

Mostly during sunrise and sunset (or during that gorgeous blue hour), Pivnick finds a quiet spot on top of a hill and shoots the fog as it gently rolls over the bridge. When asked if he could us tips on how we could capture shots like this, Pivnick said, “If you want to smooth out the fog, go with a longer shutter speed, somewhere in the 25-30 second range. If you want more detail in the fog, like the pillow top effect, go with a shorter 10-20 second exposure.”
