Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was made in the Derbyshire Peak District National Park, UK.
Time
It was taken at sunrise on 3rd November 2012. I had been coming here for several days waiting for the colours to be just right. Whilst sunrise is the best time of day for the light, timing the Autumnal red colours of the leaves is the hard part. They only show so deep red every four to five years. You need a good build up to the colour, low wind and rain and frost right the way through October. The red colours in the leaves have of course been enhanced slightly in Lightroom.
Lighting
All of the light in the image is natural at sunrise.
Equipment
Nikon D800, Nikon 105mm f2.8 lens. Handheld.
Inspiration
The colours and the beautiful sweep and curve of the long branch guiding your eye in from left to right.
Editing
Yes quite a lot on this image. Primarily colour adjustment to enhance the leaves. It was also very dull and misty so there has been a lot of contrast and exposure work undertaken.
In my camera bag
It really depends what I intend to shoot but most days would include my Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f2.8, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Nikon 70-300mm, Fuji X100s, Gitzo tripod, Lee Big Stopper filter and my 2x teleconverter.
Feedback
To capture a similar image to this you need to firstly find the right composition, tree, location. After this you need the colour which is all down to mother nature so lots of return visits to determine the best time to shoot. Get up early to make best use of available natural light. The quality of light and low angle meant that the interior of the wood was illuminated before the sun rose and was blocked by the conopies.
