Any place that has the Golden Gate Bridge as backdrop
A well-known fact is that Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most photographed tourist spots in the world. However, many vantage points provide fantastic views of the iconic bridge. Some examples are Baker’s Beach, Battery Spencer, Vista Point, Land’s End, and Marin Headlines.
Two hundred and eighty-two miles above sea level, the summit of Twin Peaks offers a view of the whole San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, and even Oakland in the horizon. Shooting cityscapes during either the day or night is perfect at Twin Peaks.
Chinatown and The Castro District
Those looking to practice street photography, Chinatown, especially during Chinese New Year, and the Castro District, the center of LGBT culture in San Francisco, are great places that present countless opportunities to capture vivid, colorful images.

There are many tourist traps in San Francisco, but one of the best is Fisherman’s Wharf or Pier 39 because of the excellent photo opportunities in the place. There are sea lions that inhabit the area, and the Alcatraz is one long lens away from the pier.
