Behind The Lens

Location
I took this image off the coast of the Andros Island, which is the largest Bahama island.
Time
I took this image right at sunset.
Lighting
It was a great sunset that night with rich golden colors.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D50 with a nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6 kit lens.
Inspiration
While serving in the U.S. Navy as a Search and Rescue (SAR) Swimmer I was on a flight of the coast of the Bahamas at sunset for a training flight. I always brought my camera with me when I flew and this evening was no exception. I was able to capture this image of two of my buddies as they were being hoisted back in to the MH-60s helicopter after jumping out.
Editing
I this used Lightroom to make slight color corrections.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, Nikon 7100, Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8, Nikon 16-35mm F/4, Sigma 35mm F/1.4, Nikon SB-910, Manfroto 190PROCX4 Tripod, Nikon MC-36A, Lee Big Stopper, B+W CP Filter Pocketwizards Plus III (x2).
Feedback
