Behind The Lens

Location
Taken on Cable Beach, Broome, Western Australia. I was travelling to Broome every 8 weeks for work and I always enjoyed wandering down to the beach at sunset to watch the camels go by.
Time
To get the "perfect" photo is so difficult. You need the correct tide with just the right amount of water still sitting, no wind to ripple the water, no people in the shot other than the ones with the camels and of course a beautiful sunset.
Lighting
Lighting at sunset is always a challenge when you are looking directly into the sun. You can use a filter to darken the sky area or a circular polarising filter. For this photo I did not use any filter but chose ISO of 400 with a shutter speed of 1/320, getting the shot you see with a beautiful silhouette of the camel train.
Equipment
I used my Canon 600D with the kit lens EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5 - 5.6 IS.
Inspiration
Whenever in Broome I always walk down to spend sunset on Cable Beach. The sunsets across the water are magical. You add the camel train and you have unimaginable.
Editing
All I did was crop a little.
In my camera bag
I always carry spare battery,,cleaning cloth, any filter I may use and any lens I may need.
Feedback
Sit and wait. Keep the camera as steady as possible. Use either a tripod or rest the camera on a solid surface (even on your shoe - but not directly on the sand).
