Gorgeous lighting!

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
The golden hour - 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.
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
On that day I went to that location with the idea of completely different shot, but then I saw the small path and I gave it a try.
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
I am not an old school photographer and for sure not a DSLR fan, I love my mirrorless cameras, I think they are the future of the photography. I have always used Sony cameras. For landscape photography I normaly use 18-55mm lens and for street or product photography I use 55-210mm or 50mm lenses. Same with the tripods - lightweight for outdoor and if I shoot indoors I use the much heavier Manfrotto 055 Pro.
Feedback
Spend more time in search for the perfect shot than making hundreds of useless pictures. Look for strong guide lines. Never think that the first position you take will bring you the best results, experiment, try with different angles, a position just 1 meter away might give you much different results.
