Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at Manassas National Battlefield in Virginia during the first days of spring 2015.
Time
This was taken one spring evening when my wife and I decided to take a walk at the battlefield in Manassas, Virginia.
Lighting
When we got there, the sun was just setting, its rays spreading throughout the golden fields of this historic site. I was the perfect lighting condition to such a solemn place.
Equipment
This was taken with a Canon 6D, which my wife just recently got for me during that time. I took the picture handheld; no flashes and/or tripods.
Inspiration
I've always loved this place. Despite its bloody history, there's that beauty, that is so inviting, you just have to take that shot.
Editing
To achieve a wider view of the site, I had to stitch up six photos. I did some color correction in lightroom first before exporting it to photoshop for stitching and some more editing such as burning and other adjustments.
In my camera bag
I normally carry my t3i with a 50mm lens with me. Sometimes I have my 10-18mm on because those are just fun lenses to play with.
Feedback
Like any other photos, landscape photography requires a lot of patience and diligence. It doesn't matter what time of day you take your photos. What matters is how you take them. Experiment. Take photos using different perspectives. Best of all, have fun!
