Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken while visiting a friend in Florida.
Time
It was winding down the day and we were having a brew on the beach as sunset loomed ahead.
Lighting
The great thing about this shot and light is ... it kept changing! See the few others that were but minutes apart on my page. From golden to blue to green cast, hard light to soft light and all to the sound of rolling waves
Equipment
I shoot Sony. Have since my 4 meg point and shoot in a waterproof case I took to Fiji. Never ever have they failed me. Here it was hand held
Inspiration
The light!! The light was world class spectacular! As I said above, it changed in intensity and in drama.
Editing
I tweaked the highlights and the shadows to bring them in line
In my camera bag
I currently shoot Sony A7Rm2 with a 24/240 Zeiss, If on an adventure, I take a tripod but rarely use it, I carry extra batteries but that is pretty much it
Feedback
Patience Patience Patience. Get good at hand holding (and your breath at the same time). ALWAYS carry a camera, you never can tell and will always have regrets. Be a student of watching the lights. Photo (Light) Graphy (Writing) Photography = Light writer... everything else is fluff :-)
