Behind The Lens

Location
The shot was taken on the shores of Malta.
Time
This shot was taken in the evening hours, during the walk along the sea.
Lighting
Long expoure combined with moonlight and city light gives to this shot lots of shadows, and contributes to dramatic.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 550d with Samyang 8mm fisheye, with big rock behind me as a tripoid.
Inspiration
Occasional trips to nature, or at least uncrowded places, where I like to be alone and where I look at the sky that heals my inner energy is one of my favourite activities. This is my thing that helps my to clear my head from bad thoughts and negattive energy and helps me to get rid of the stress from my body and soul. With this photo i actually wanted to animate others to do the same, and to help them to slow down, and to clear their thoughts.
Editing
Yes, post-processing are important part of photography. I try not to overdo with that, so I changed contrast, white balance, and added more saturation.
In my camera bag
I like wide angle shot, so I always bring Canon 10-18mm with me. Sigma 17-50 and Helios 44-2 58mm are also part of the equipment that is often in my bag.
Feedback
Just get outside, away from the city, where light pollution is small, and look at the sky. In places like that, it´s easy to capture similar shot´s like mine.
