Behind The Lens

Location
This my picture was taken in early summer 2015. The site is located in Italy, in Piedmont region, set at the foot of Mount Viso, the famous mountain in the Alps as well as our very photogenic. Many call Monviso "The Stone King", for its majesty and beauty.
Time
It 'was taken in the early morning. I remember that day was quite cold, but we did not have to walk far to get to this great valley where flows a small river with a series of waterfalls. We decided to splurge and do some testing (being a photography workshop). After some tests I tried to take some pictures and here is my picture here!
Lighting
I had to make a few clicks to be able to capture water in a fluid motion but not too silky. In fact I think I did at least a dozen of photos, also because I threatened to burn all the whites in the foreground. Luckily dawn is enough time and I was able to find the correct exposure.
Equipment
This was shot with: Nikon D700, Nikkor 18-35 f 3.5-4.5 and a manfrotto tripod. I also used various gradient filters Lee.
Inspiration
As I mentioned I took this picture during a landscaped workshop, so my inspiration was above all the beautiful images that I had seen on this place and this mountain, so I took the opportunity. And then my desire and passion for photography have done everything else. I always try to improve my images and especially the impact that I want to give to the viewer.
Editing
As with all of my pictures even this was post-produced. I have not made many steps, certainly I raised un'pò shadows because having the sun was rising behind that light in first floor was very little (apart from that for the white water flow). Later I worked on contrast and colors. After I used multiple exposures first floor for the effect of water movement is not to burn the whites, both have an effect not too silky.
In my camera bag
Usually a backpack Lowepro flipside sport with me I will take from 15 lt. Inside there is everything! .. Nikon d700, Nikkor 18-35 f 3.5-4.5, Nikkor 80-200 f 2.8, Samyang 14 mm f 2.8, a remote control for remote shooting, extra batteries, two headlamps, gradient filters Lee, Bigstopper Lee, Lee and Littlestopper Manfrotto tripod travel.
Feedback
I think our desire and passion we can push up to the fantastic limits. Until a few years ago I never peensato to wake up at 4:30 am to go to take pictures! So my advice is to get carried away by our passion, wake up early in the morning, come home when the sun has already set and go to sleep tardi..questi are the best moments for a landscape photographer. Always look at the sky and the landscape. And do not forget to be patient and try again forever, why not be the first time that you will get what you hope, it takes un'pò of experience and good will.
