What makes this image so special to me is because I took it during the time when I first started photography. So I wasn’t too confident in my skills of long exposure. It was my first time visiting LA and I had friends showing me around. So I took my tripod, set my camera settings, took two shots and they were perfect. I was so amazed. I used Sony a7 coupled with the kit lens. My f-stop was at F14, my shutter speed
was at 30 seconds and my ISO was a 100. When I got the results that I got, looking at the image and having my friends looking at and they’re like ‘Wow’ that really boosted my confidence and from then, actually I went out to do more long exposure shots because of that. It gave me the confidence to even do more.
