Pier

Pier

The Hermosa Beach Pier is filled with lines, shapes, and vivid colors that allow me to shoot photos with just my phone. With a willing subject, I was able to experiment with height and framing. I love shooting with an iPhone because it makes me think harder about composition rather than shutter speed and aperture. CAMERA: iPhone 5
