Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the Delaware River in Pennsylvania while traveling to Maine. We stopped at several locations along the way and this photo is one of my favorites of the trip.
Time
I wanted to get up early and get an early start on the day. Luckily for me, I was able to capture the fog rising off the river as the sun rose above. The fishermen in their boat was icing on the cake.
Lighting
The lighting was natural light after sunrise. I had to wait until the sun rose above the tree line to properly expose for the river below.
Equipment
I shot this handheld using my wife's Nikon D3200 with an 18-250mm Sigma lens.
Inspiration
I was inspired to take this photo because of how magical rivers can be in the early morning hours. With the fog rising over the water, it gives an ethereal feel to the photo.
Editing
There wasn't a lot of post processing with this photo. Usually, I do quite a bit of post processing on my landscape photos. With this one, I basically cropped for composition, converted to black and white, then I added a split tone in LR to give it a sepia like tone.
In my camera bag
Normally I carry a Canon 6D in my bag with various lenses depending on what I'm after. Generally, you'll never catch me without my Canon 24-70 and Canon 70-200mm. I usually have several ND filters and an assortment of other accessories such as a Manfrotto tripod.
Feedback
For me, the old adage of "The early bird catches the worm" seems to work. Obviously the golden hours in the early morning and late afternoon are the best. So, I try to shoot around those times. I try not to put too much planning in my shots and usually let the scene unfold before me. I find when I plan too much the scene never meets my expectation. Being flexible and having the ability to adjust to the scene as it unfolds tends to be the most rewarding for me.
