Behind The Lens

Location
Sheringham in Norfolk on the south east coast of England
Time
Late afternoon.
Lighting
A storm was coming over and the clouds were very textual and strong. The light was complex because of this, I knew instantly it would be a good black and white as the colours where dulled form the weather and the light was so beautiful.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D7100 with a sigma wide angle.
Inspiration
Just the lighting really. Light like that doesn’t come around like that every day, and I thought I’d take the opportunity.
Editing
I used lightroom to process the image, I like very contrasty black and whites and then I dodge and burn to highlight and darken the neccissary areas to bring out the detail.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I use a Nikon d750 with a Nikon 50mm, Tokina 16-28 and a sigma 105 macro.
Feedback
Just wait for the light, don’t snap because it’s a similar image, complex light can be found anywhere, without storms or clouds. Use doorways or windows or buildings. Anything that can change or diffuse light in some way.
