Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on a gorgeous Fall day on Long Island, New York at Blydenberg Park. This park is located in Suffolk County, a suburb of Manhattan. I was awaiting family to arrive to do a holiday card photo shoot and the sun started setting through the trees creating these amazing lines and shadows.
Time
I remember awaiting the family to arrive and it was about 2 hours before sunset. The sun started getting lower in the sky and the warm tones from the leaves and golden sun started to glow.
Lighting
This lighting was all natural sunlight. It was the beginning of the golden hour (hours), so the sun was lower in the sky and started to filter between the trees.
Equipment
I used my nikon d7100 and sigma 17-50 lens. This was a handheld shot and processed in Lightroom for raw adjustments.
Inspiration
I was scoping out a fantastic location to set my family up so I arrived about a half hour before them. The light became magical and the scene just appeared before my eyes begging to be photographed.
Editing
I shoot in raw format so this photos was edited in lightroom for raw adjustments only.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag I always have a 10 stop nd filter, a grad nd filter, a wide lens (now a tamron 15-30), a tamron 24-70, tamron 70-200 and sometimes a nikon 85mm 1.8. I shoot with my nikon d750 and also keep close an olympus pen epl-7 with a 25m 1.8 and 60mm 2.8. I also keep a rain protector, expodisc, manual trigger and a tripod. When I am doing photos of people I also use an off camera flash and umbrella or small softbox.
Feedback
This is one of those photos where you just have to feel the moment and take it all in. The lighting is not super tricky and did not require any filters to achieve the look. I always bracket my shots when shooting into light like this so that I can have some great options later in post processing to see which photo I am able to have the most data available to work with. If I bracket while using a tripod, I may then have the opportunity to combine multiple photos into an HDR or hand blend them together in photoshop.
