Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the quiet island of Gozo, the small sister of Malta in the Mediterranean in April 2014.
Time
Sunset.
Lighting
During the summer you can hardly spot a cloud on the sky over Gozo, amazing weather for all the tourists, quite the opposite for a photographer though. During spring time the weather is completely different and the sunsets are amazing and full of color. The picture consists of two separate exposures, the one one for the foreground is taken 20 minutes before the one for the sky.
Equipment
I always prefer to hike while searching for spots so the lightweight cameras and tripods are a must for me. I used my Sony Nex-C3 with a 18-55 Sony lens and a lightweight tripod for the shot.
Inspiration
I saw the small field of flowers during a hiking trip I checked my compass and I instantly knew that this will be an amazing sunset shot. I waited for over a week for good conditions and finally I was awarded with this sunset. As the composition of the shot was already in my head the rest was just an easy job.
Editing
For images like this I always make two exposures - one for the foreground and one for the sky then I blended them in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
Mirrorless Sony
Feedback
Spend more time in search for the perfect shot, explore the locations around you and never give up. Look for strong guide lines. Try taking making exposures for the sky and for the foreground, once you make it right you'll see the difference for yourself.
