Behind The Lens

Location
In Wootton Wawen, Warwickshire.
Time
This was taken at sunset, when the light was just peaking through the trees.
Lighting
I had to make sure the sun wasn't too bright, as I just wanted to ensure the light was catching on the glorious colours of the bluebells. This involved hiding the sun behind one of the trunks.
Equipment
This was shot on a Fujifilm X-T1 + 18-135mm on a Three Legged Thing tripod.
Inspiration
I love this wood, especially in spring when the display of bluebells are second to none. The sun sets behind the scene and backlights the beautiful display. I'd come here the year before and taken a few shots, but wanted to return to see if I could get something more inspiring. The light was great and I was able to pick out the colours. However, it's still not quite the shot I was hoping to get.
Editing
I generally start in Lightroom to make some minor adjustments, then in Photoshop I pulled out some of the colours and enhanced some of the highlights.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my camera and a selection of lenses, including a prime, macro and telephoto, as well as some Lee Filters.
Feedback
Definitely try and judge the light and make sure you know where the sun is rising and setting, this will add drama to the scene. Try and compose so the trees help, rather than hinder the composition.
