Behind The Lens

Location
New port rail yards Melbourne
Time
8pm
Lighting
It was captured in natural street light with a long exposure to capture the motion of the steam.
Equipment
Canon 6D sigma 24-70 mm F2.8 manfrotto 190 XB pro with manfrotto 57 ball head
Inspiration
I run a photography group and organised a night at the old rail yards for 35 people to photograph the old trains at night. Check out our Facebook group Perfection photography excursions.
Editing
Only high and low tones edit the rest is as captured.
In my camera bag
Canon 6D canon 60D sigma 24-70 Tokina 11-16 Tamron 70-200 mm Hoya Filters 2 x canon 580 ex flashes
Feedback
It's all about the right settings for the photo. As light and time of day will always change a photo.
