Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from the island of Palmaria (in front of Portovenere, in Liguria) during a workshop with Nikon on a cold winter evening
Time
When I took this picture it was almost 6pm and it was the classic "blue hour" that all photographers love. A few minutes before I arrived on the heogo, they lit up the light on the promontory and it was really all very beautiful! The use of the tripod was mandatory for this type of shot.
Lighting
The long exposure allowed me to use natural light still coming from the sky and from that lighthouse in front of me. The closed diaphragm helped to define the edges and lights nicely.
Equipment
At that time (November 2014) I had the Nikon D4S equipped with the 14-24 f / 2.8 Nikon. The shooting data are as follows: ISO100; f / 11; Weighted average detection; 30 seconds exposure. Obviously I used my Manfrotto tripod and shutter bellows
Inspiration
Faced with such a beautiful panorama it is easy to get excited! The beautiful light, the flat sea, the spotlight that illuminated a velvety sea really impressed me. I would have liked all this beauty to have been less brief.
Editing
At the post production level I have only given more definition to the image with Photoshop. I raised the lights up close to me. Nothing more.
In my camera bag
Now (February 2018) I always have with me the D5 and the D850 and the classic "triad" Nikon composed of 14-24; 24-70 and 70-200. The 85 f1.4 Nikon and the tripod almost always accompany me. A nice weight, but I can not give up a picture if my eyes and my mind see it, just because I left the equipment at home! I really regret it too much!
Feedback
There are few recommendations. The most is to see and photograph what your mind perceives. A thrilling shot is not just technical but emotion. The technique takes but that one learns easily. The hardest thing is to know how to see what is beautiful around us and excites us. And this is achieved by natural gifts but also by observing the photos of other photographers. Good light to everyone!
