Behind The Lens

Location

In Capo Spartivento, south coast of Sardinia.

Time

about 3 am in April.

Lighting

It's natural light from the lighthouse.

Equipment

I used a Canon 500d and tokina 16-28.

Inspiration

I knew this place so I wanted to shoot the panoramic of this place and it's a perfect for the composition.

Editing

I stitched the shots with a panoramic software, then I post processed with lightroom and photoshop.

In my camera bag

Sony a7 Sony a7II Sony a7RII samyang 14 Sony 16-35 Sony 70-200 Sony 55 1.8 Sony 28-70

Feedback

Choose a good point for the composition, and take many shots, a lot, all of them at the same exposure. It's important the overlap you choose for every shot, usually from 40 to 70%.
