Behind The Lens

Location
This was from a wedding in Central Italy. The exact places are Santo Stefano di Sessanio (the nearby town) and Rocca Calascio (the castle and the small church). A true amazing place to get married.
Time
Sunset. 6pm in September, more or less.
Lighting
Just natural light! :)
Equipment
DSLR and a wideangle zoom (this was a Nikon 16-35mm f/4). No tripod.
Inspiration
The sky was amazing. But I wanted to include also the small church on the background, cutting some obtrusive elements on the ground. It looks like I did well...
Editing
Just a strong black & white conversion. Almost no local corrections.
In my camera bag
2 Nikon Full-frame DSLR, 4 lenses at the moment: 20, 35, 50, 85mm.
Feedback
Find a place that's beautiful enough also without subjects. Compose the image as best as you can, balancing the subject and eventually a second element in the scene (in this case the church). Let your subject be happy and natural. Sad posed portraits do not work as good as this. ; )
