I've had a few weekends packed with photography, and I absolutely loved it. This weekend I didn't really have much planned. I was hoping to go over to a friend's ranch, but then had a meeting in San Francisco yesterday. I decided to organize a little get together with a few friends to shoot around Golden Gate bridge as well as meetup with a bunch of other photographers in the marin headlands.
We started off at the Vista Point at the north end of Golden Gate Bridge. I met up with +Leslie Sigala, +Abel Lin, and +Jon Bauer. We walked across part of the bridge, and then back. Then drove up to the headlands to try to find parking somewhere near Battery Spencer, but once we got there realized that would be impossible.
There were hundreds and hundreds of photographers all lined up in the headlands. It was an incredible sight.
I tried to meetup with +Andrew Ng but alas, it would have been impossible. I illegally parked with the other hundred other cars illegally parked on the road in the bike lane, and just setup my tripod right next to the car. I really had no idea what to expect, and for awhile we didn't even know which way the moon was going to rise from. +Jon Bauer's willy nilly moon app wasn't great, but +Abel Lin found one that gave us the exact position.
Anyway, I didn't have any 400mm+ lens, so I just took one with my 85mm =) My iPhone photos came out pretty cool though, but this one does a little more justice.
My dumb circular polarizer kind of screwed the sky up a bit, but I think it came out pretty good. A little purple due to my white balance being set a little strangely. My Lightroom 4 keeps crashing when I tweak it, so alas, this is what it will stay at.
Great to spend the supermoon evening with superfriends =)
