Behind The Lens

Location
At Iceland, near the town of Grundarfjörður.
Time
It was about 8:45am but since the sky was overcast it was still a good time to shoot.
Lighting
Don't get disappointed if you don't get a beautiful sunrise/sunset. Even during gloomy weather there still are a lot of photo opportunities to be had. Like what I had when shooting this place. With gloomy weather its easier to shoot waterfalls.
Equipment
Canon 6D with a Canon 16-35mm Lens at f16. With a 15 second exposure to make the water silky smooth. I also used a 6 stops ND filter as well as a Manfrotto Tripod.
Inspiration
I wanted to make the waterfalls look close enough to the kirkjufell mountain. In order to do that I had to be as close as possible to the waterfalls without getting wet. I was probably about 6 feet way with some slight water spray being blown at me. I also wanted it to be slightly different from the rest who have taken this shot so I positioned myself more to the left. Finally I converted it to black and white which for me looks better than the colored one.
Editing
I used photoshop with Nik SilverFX to convert it to black and white.
In my camera bag
For Landscape photography I carry the following: Canon 6D Canon 16-25mm F2.8 Lens Canon 24-70mm f2.8 Lens 10 Stops ND filter 100 x 100 6 Stops ND filter 100 x 100 Lee Filter holder Singray 3 stops ND Grad filter soft Singray 3 stops Reverse ND Grad filter Cable Release
Feedback
If you come to this place and you were expecting a beautiful sunrise/sunset but get the opposite. Like what happened to me. I had a gloomy sunrise I just kept on shooting different angles of the place. Don't just shoot a couple of shots and leave but go around the place there are a lot of different photo opportunities this place has. Just shoot the waterfall separately as well as Kirkjufell on its own.
