Went to go crabbing in the city. The first spot closed early so we went to Crissy Field which doesn't close I think.
There was a good amount of people. Many brought their portable chairs, a cooler filled with drinks and whatever else to make the cold weather more enjoyable. We on the other hand went bare bones with just our nets and flash lights.
I was able to get some good shots of the Golden Gate bridge. We caught a few crabs then released them back into the water. The highlight of the night was when someone caught a leopard shark!

We were back at it again this weekend. This time we were a bit more prepared. We had lights, chairs, and fishing poles to go along with our nets.
We didn't catch anything spectacular but we caught a good amount of crabs. The nets yielded the best results with chicken and a bit of dried fish as bait. The fishing rods worked well also but a bit harder to get the technique down.
I was able to get a few more shots in with my other lenses (the fisheye and my 35mm) to play around with different focal lengths.
|mixed lighting with the fisheye. I didn't bother to adjust the horizon even though it would make the image a bit better.|
|with the slr magic 35mm 1.4. There's an anamorphic adapter of some sorts for this lens that may appeal to me in the future for more cinematic looking video/stills.|
