Behind The Lens


This stainless steel chair was recently installed at our beachfront and I was intrigued. A few togs had already photographed it, but this is my interpretation of it.


The shoot was done at around 8pm to make sure that there were few people around and I could get the composition I wanted. It was rather chilly as well.


It was the first time that I used only LED lights, so that was experimental as well. 2 LED were used.


Shot with Nikon D3 and a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 at 2.8. Hand held.


It was a stainless steel deck chair and the other images taken of it did not do it justice, so I thought I would give it a try. Also the challenge of only using LED lights.


Yes, some noise reduction because of high ISO and some tweets with Photoshop.

In my camera bag

Nikon D3 and D7100, 50mm 1.8, 85mm 1.4, 70-200 2.8, and a 12-24. SB900 speedlight and 2 LED lights.


Always try and challenge yourself, you will be surprised at how much you can learn and how much you develop as a photographer. Try and tell your story differently to others. Equipment is not everything , learn to be creative with your composition. Be patient and have fun.
