Albert your images always visually resonate with my soul. There is a magical quality about many of them that makes your image making draw in the eye and wish that we are there too. It is really armchair travelling!

Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo in a flower field in the Netherlands. These flowers are only blossoming a very short time each year. During this time, a lot of dutch photographers go out to take photos of them. Catching a nice sunset with it is a plus, which I did here. The sunset really matched the colours of the flowers.

Time

This was captured around 7:30 PM when the sun was going down.

Lighting

The lighting is a crucial part of this photograph. I wanted to take this photo when the sun was very low so that the light on the flowers wasn't at the strongest, but I still wanted to shed enough light on them to get them beautifully lit by the sun.

Equipment

This was shot with a Sony A7II along with the Samyang 14mm f2.8.

Inspiration

I love colourful scenes. This is actually the first flower season I seriously went out a lot to shoot the flowers and it paid off. I really wanted some good shots and this was one of them.

Editing

This photo is a composite of multiple photos. There is 1 longer exposure for the sky, and another exposure for the flowers. Also, The actual exposure of the flowers was actually lit too strong by the sun, so I took an extra exposure when the sun was down, and blended that in very subtle, to reduce the actual hard light cast on the flowers. I could only do this because the flowers were very still, there was no wind!

In my camera bag

My equipment consists of a Sony A7II with the 28-70 kit, the 55mm f1.8 zeiss for portraits, the 16-35 f4 zeiss for landscapes, and the Samyang 14mm f2.8 for even wider landscapes and astrophotography

Feedback

Find the best possible light or scenario to capture these kind of scenes. I had a beautiful sunset this time, but a very scary sky with thunder clouds would be awesome too. I rarely shoot this kind of scenes during complete daytime as they are quite boring. To make a shot like this perfect, you need the perfect weather.
