Picture Perfect: Water Under the Bridge

Encinitas-based photographer captured the Coronado Bridge from Seaport Village


Date of Photo:
May 4, 2016, 6 p.m.

Seaport Village

Canon 50D, Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM, polarizing filter, 10-stop neutral density, F9, ISO 100, 240 seconds

“I have always wanted to capture a unique Seaport Village scene that screams ‘San Diego,’” says Encinitas-based photographer Vincent Darmohusodo. “The day I took this photo, I dropped my family at the airport and happened to have my backup camera with me. I decided to go to the dock and took some pictures.” The conditions weren’t ideal—it was windy and the clouds were low—but Darmohusodo captured the image using a tripod and a 10-stop neutral density filter, which reduces light by a thousand times.

He also used a 240-second-long exposure that helped generate the frost-like illusion. In the past year, Darmohusodo has been transferring his images onto recycled wood: “Each photo transfer is unique and no two items are ever the same.” He sells the pieces at Solana Beach's Leaping Lotus and at pixelonwood.com.
