Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Rome, inside the Vatican Museum. The photo shows the famous spiral stairs designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932.
Time
Morning, around 11.00 A.M, beginning of August. I entered into the museum with a guided tour.
Lighting
The light coming from the top let the photo to be taken without any tripod.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D5200, 18-55 VR lens, no tripod, no flash. Parameters of the shot: focal length 18mm, Shutter Speed 1/40 s, Aperture f 3.5, ISO 100.
Inspiration
My attention was immediately caught by these incredible stairs. The spiral, its meaning and symbolism that charatcterizes it , make everything so mystical. I shot just a couple of photos of the stairs, without worring of the people coming and going as it was not a good time for a solitary shot. I like the geometry of the structure , and the title I gave to the photo, "Infinite", fully depicts which emotions I receive while looking at it.
Editing
Not much to be honest. I just decreased lights and whites and added some sharpening through Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I still don't have many lens and cameras to choose so in my bag there is my one and only Nikon D5200 with a 18-55 vr lens which is still my favourite one, despite all the critics, and a Tokina 11-16 wide angle lens, helpful for landscapes and astropotography.
Feedback
I don't have many advice for this kind of capture. I am a self taught photographer and I usually learn by doing. If you are in a museum of public place , you don't need to wait to have a moment without people around. People can be part of the scene as you can see. Don't be afraid to let your creativity go.
