Congratulations!

Behind The Lens

Location
A little known area in Baltimore called Port Covington
Time
Very early in the morning, around 530 am.
Lighting
Overcast, stormy, blue hour mixed with some industrial lighting from around the port. Nothing a ND grad Filter couldn't handle.
Equipment
Canon 5DMKII, Canon EF 17-40 f/4L, Lee 0.6 soft grad ND, Manfrotto 190CXPRO3, Promote remote
Inspiration
i wanted to catch a sunrise from a less popular Baltimore harbor location. I saw a shot that a friend of mine took from a location close to here, so I wanted to take a look. This particular pier remnant stood out under this stormy backdrop, and I knew it would make a decent long exposure.
Editing
some dodging and conversion to B&W via NIK Sliver Efex.
In my camera bag
Normally the following; Canon 5DMKII, Canon 7D and occasionally a Life Pixel modified T1i. Canon 17-40 f/4L or 24-70 f2.8L, 70-200 f/2.8L ISII, Canon 50mm f/1.4 Lee Filter system, Lee GND filters, SinghRay RGND Yongnou wireless triggers Wrigleys Cobalt gum. Sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on what I want to shoot.
Feedback
Be adventurous, but don't be late. Timing is everything when it comes to sunrise, as your window is very small. Also, don't forget to check the forecast the day before. If you run out of ideas for places to go, check with your friends, or browse through media sharing sites. Often times, the photographer will share their location. You will need a sturdy tripod, a remote trigger-wireless is better, but wired is good, too, and some high quality ND filters. Invest in a RGND. It is worth the expense, if you plan to shoot rises and sets.
