Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Tamarack Beach, in Carlsbad, California
Time
If I am going out to take sunset pictures, I usually head out about an hour before the sun goes down. This particular evening I was running late, so when I saw the man with his dog, I had to run out, as quickly as I could in the sand, before the sun went down. I was using a wide-angle lens, so I had to get as close as possible to the subject, which put me in the water. I was soaking wet from the thighs down, but It was worth it!
Lighting
Natural light, HDR photo. With HDR, I try very hard to make sure it DOESN'T look like an obvious HDR photo. I spend a lot of time in post-processing, to make sure the shadows aren't too dark, and I pop the colors (among many other things).
Equipment
I do not have a lot of money to spend on expensive equipment. This was taken with my Canon Rebel, with a wide-angle lens.
Inspiration
The 'unexpected' is always what makes a photo great. My intention was simply to get some nice sunset photos; however, when I saw the man with his dog, I was SO excited. You never know what you'll run into when you go out to shoot.
Editing
I spend a lot of time in post-processing, to make sure the photo looks as natural as possible. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but with HDR photos, it's important for me to avoid an 'over-done' look. Whenever I photograph rocks on the beach at sunset, they are always underexposed. I spent time making sure the shadows are lifted, and use a lot of noise reduction. I really hate noise, so I'll even use a blurring tool, if I have to. I often enlarge my photos for print and/or canvas, so noise looks terrible once enlarged. I usually will select the sky, and add contrast, to bring out the colors. Sharpening is super important, and I use OnOne software for a lot of post-processing. I also use a lot of Greater Than Gatsby actions, as well as Photomatix.

Feedback
For me, landscape shots should always be shot in HDR, and RAW. This allows the ability to do lots of manipulation, to get the image where you want it to be. I use Photomatix to merge the photos together, and then choose the best option that showcases my photo as close as possible, to what I want. But once I open it in Photoshop, that's when the work begins. I look at it like I'm a painter, and I use my tools to create the image I want to see. The trick is to make it look as natural as possible.
