Where was the image shot?
Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, CA
What camera did you use and what were the settings?
Camera: Fuji X-T3
Shutter Speed: 1/80
Was there any special preparation required to capture the photo?
This was the second morning trying to capture the fog through the trees in the morning sunlight. It consisted of a lot of running around and chasing the changing conditions.
How long have you been shooting?
I started with an iPhone in 2016, moved to a digital camera in 2017 and to a mirrorless soon after. I have always enjoyed art and photography though.
What's your favorite subject matter to shoot?
I enjoy travel photography the most. Astro photography and underwater photography are close seconds.
Do you shoot with a crew or shoot solo?
What excites you about photography?
Photography gives me a way to get away from the day to day monotony of a desk job and long commute. Traveling the world and chasing down the "bucket-list" shots one by one.
