Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken with an Olympus 35mm film camera several years ago in southern California on the top of a hill overlooking the family property.
Time
This was taken during a firey sunset at about 6:30 pm on a fall evening.
Lighting
Sunsets or sunrises almost always provide a beautiful backdrop for a silhouette photo...
Equipment
This was taken handheld with an Olympus 35mm film camera. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
The young boy and his best friend sharing a special moment in the light of this rare, beautiful sunset provided a photo op that just couldn't be passed up.
Editing
Other than the clean up of dust spots that were left behind when the 35mm slide was converted into a digital image, this photo is "as is" right out of the camera. No other adjustments were made.
In my camera bag
This photo was taken several years ago with a film camera. However, after the digital age arrived, my camera of choice became the Nikon D750 full frame DSLR. I normally used a Nikkor 28-300mm zoom lens, but also carry a Nikkor 24-120mm lens, as well as a macro lens. I always have 2 64gb memory cards in my camera with a 32gb card for backup. Additionally, I always carry a spare fully charged battery and battery charger, UV and polarizing filters for all lenses, a Tiffen variable ND filter, the Cokin filter system, a lightweight carbon fiber tripod, a remote release, and cleaning supplies.
Feedback
Landscape photographers often have the luxury of returning to a particular place at different times of the day or night (or seasons) in order to capture a scene under different lighting or weather conditions. But since you can't always plan on a sunset, there is a good bit of luck involved. However, planning ahead and knowing where sunsets might occur in different places is always helpful. Obviously, sunsets must be captured in the early evening right in the heart of the "golden hour"; this provides a warm, soft light which in turn reduces the amount of post processing that would otherwise have to be done in order to turn a so-so photo into a great photo.
