Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the beach of the Golden Sand resort in Bulgaria. My niece was scared to get on the ferris wheel alone so I went with her.
Time
It was taken in the evening just before dinner. Me and my family always go on a walk by the sea just before dinner.
Lighting
The sun was very low, it was almost sunset so the scene had that glowing warm tone I just had to capture.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D7000 camera with a Samyand 8 mm fisheye lens, handheld with no flash used.
Inspiration
The lighting and the gigantic scale of the ferris wheel with its straight diagonal lines just created a really magical scene.
Editing
I used Snapseed for the editing on my iMac and then some cropping and straightening was done in Photoshop together with some minor contrast adjustments.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Nikon D7000 camera, a Tamron 17-50 mm f 2.8, a Samyang 8 mm fisheye and a Nikkor 50 mm f 1.8 lenses with me.
Feedback
The golden hour is the best time to take a photo - it is the early hours of the day just around sunrise and just before the sunset in the evening. It gives the photos a very warm and cozy look and creates very foft subtle shadows so this is the best time to shoot. What really gave this image it's atmosphere is the color toning and the grunge textures added in Snapseed. Try to experiment with light and editing - this is the best way to learn.
