Behind The Lens

Location

Above Davos, Switzerland.

Time

2:20pm

Lighting

All natural Winter sun, with all it's lens flare it has to offer!

Equipment

Canon 7D, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L

Inspiration

I wanted to capture the bright light and reflecting snow of a sunny Winter day in the Swiss alps. We were walking down into the valley and enjoying the incredible view.

Editing

Conversion to black and white in Lightroom, contrast, tonality, and a little bit of vignetting.

In my camera bag

Depends on what I am doing on that day. It's usually my Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, Canon 50mm f/1.4, and Canon 17-40mm f/4L. My favorite lens (Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L) is a tad on the heavy side, and sometimes it has to stay at home. There's also an assortment of spare batteries and memory cards, a spare UV / Polarizer filter, an ND filter I never use, some lens tissues, a pocket knife and a mag lite.

Feedback

Don't be afraid of lens flare, make it part of your photo if you cannot eliminate it.
