Behind The Lens

Location
Florida Keys, Bahia Honda Bridge
Time
afternoon around 3 pm summer time
Lighting
pretty much backlit with reflection of clouds and bridge in the water
Equipment
Nikon D800, Nikon 70-200mm vr, ISO 100, f/8, 1/200th
Inspiration
the sky and cloud reflections. the sky was deep blue that would be nice and dark black in black & white, also the white clouds will stand out against the black sky
Editing
Yes, black & white and some photoshop manipulations, working with the black & white scale tones, First i look at the image to see if it will make a good black & white conversion. Since this has a lot of contrast and the deep blue sky it was a good match. I work in color first to get the right blue and white. Then I convert to black & white. Once in black & white I try and use the Zone System that works with the 10 tones from pure white to total black and the brey tones in between. This image was a little off becsue of the contrats. So I created two images one with lighter grey tones and one with the contrast. married them together for the look i wanted. I then created a better reflection in the water and added a few more clouds> there was a reflection in the water, but not as nice and as large as the one I created.
In my camera bag
I have 3 different bags depending on the job bag 1 is my small bag with body and two lenses, cards, batteries (lenses depends on the shoot generally a 70-200 nikon VR zoom and a wide 15mm bag 2 is my medium bag, two bodies, 70-200, 15mm, 24mm, 50mm, 85mm, cards, batteries, flash, bag 3 heavy bag sometimes two bags, 70-200, 300, or 400, 16 fish eye, 15mm zeiss, 50 zeiss, 85mm zeiss, 60 macro, 180mm, batteries, cards, flash and a portable strobes with battery supply
Feedback
shoot, shoot, shoot, look for the shot! I knew this was going to be a black & white shot right away.
