Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken of my wife (leaning) at Bank Station in London. We had an amazing winters day out in the city and were travelling back to our hotel. Luckily my camera is always out and ready to go, so I waited for a passing train and captured fast paced life city life, while she leant on the wall knackered from a long day!
Time
Early evening, we just finished grabbing a beer at a local pub, which I unfortunately forget the name of! It was well deserved after how much we did that day, and I can still taste my beer now when I think about it.
Lighting
Lighting in the underground can be a difficult one, the lights are always flickering, or difference temps. Luckily, the lighting in this station was bright enough for this handheld shot, but it the passing trains did make the lights flicker quite a bit which was highly annoying.
Equipment
Nikon d800, handheld. Breathed out like a sniper would before taking a shot...... cliche, and probably a placebo effect, but it seemed to work!
Inspiration
I don't live in London, so the opportunity to try and capture candid shots of people in this environment appealed to me. I am a wedding photographer by trade, and am definitely a not posed, in the moment kinda guy- I prefer to capture life as it happens, and I know this station was a good spot for that.
Editing
I use Lightroom to post process, and adjusted the white balance slightly. I added a bit of vignetting, and made the colours slightly more vibrant to focus the eyes, but aside from that, nothing.
In my camera bag
For daily life / exploring- Nikon d800, fuji film xt10, Nikon 500mm, Nikon 16mm fisheye, Nikon 85mm, Samyang 14mm wide, various strobes, my manfrotto 190 series tripod. For weddings- a hell of a lot more kit! Mainly strobe related, like my awesome Godox Witstro Ad360 flash etc.
Feedback
This is NOT hard picture to take. Anyone can do it with any type of camera. You may want to use a tripod, but as it was not even a whole second of exposure, it was doable handheld on my d800. It is all about the story you want to tell, the angle you want to use, and the mood you are in for a shot like this. Seriously, get out in a big city with lots of movement, drag your shutter a bit and see what you get! I just tried to make it more interesting with the fast moving train, and slow, lazy, tired people- experiment!
