Golden Hour Glow

For this project, I took a walk over to the Ocean Beach boardwalk during the golden hour when the lighting is usually fantastic and the people are out and about. Ocean Beach, an area of San Diego, is such a great place to walk around and have a plethora of different things to shoot. From the surf, to sunsets, to the whacky characters on the boardwalk - you are never short for subjects to shoot. For these two shots, I planted myself in the small grassy park where there were people practicing tandem yoga, playing music, hula hooping, working out and just watching sunset. I knew that if I slowly worked my way around the small park I would be sure to capture some unique moments.

With these two images I especially focused on the great silhouettes that were forming with that beautiful low angle sun.

Thanks for reading!
