Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Virginia Water in Berkshire, UK. A beautiful walk around a large lake with this cascading water surprise at the end.
Time
It was taken late in the afternoon in the Autumn as we were about to finish the walk, i think it helps the shots because the leaves have some great colour in then with the deep reds.
Lighting
I find that if you are planning to do a long exposure shot like this then it's best to wait until later in the day to avoid the light being too harsh.
Equipment
My camera model when i took this photo was a Canon 500D and it was taken using the Sigma 18-250mm lens. It was taken using a Manfrotto monopod steadied against a wall.
Inspiration
I love the effect that long exposures have on water and don't get the opportunity around my local area for this type of shot, so couldn't resist trying it out, very pleased with the result.
Editing
Post processing just involved adjusting the layers a little.
In my camera bag
I usually go with everything i might need. Canon 70D, Sigma 18-250mm lens, Sigma 150-500mm lens, polarising filter, monopod, spare battery, spare memory cards.
Feedback
Take your time and try not too hurry, these types of shots do take practice to get the ISO, F-Stop, Shutter speed just right. Allow yourself time to take a lot of test shots so you get it just right.
