Great shot! Congrats.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at Barry "Island" in South Wales. The huts are part of the rejuvenation of a tired and run down family beach resort, with the rebranding of "Barrybados"
Time
It was ( I think ) Mid afternoon.
Lighting
The lighting was , as you can see, very flat, wide open from the sea means almost no shadows
Equipment
My Nikon 5200, with a kit 18-55 mm lens
Inspiration
I had seen the huts from the distance, and knew that they would make a splash of colour , but was hoping not to come up with the "standard" shot of the receding line of huts. There is a car park above the huts and steps coming down, this was taken from those steps , picking the angle to try and get us much colour in as possible.
Editing
I'm colour blind, and can't trust what I can see ( unless there are numbers to it) on a slider , so there was the bare minimum of work in LightRoom, a light crop, straighten and increase of vibrancy & contrast. I had only just started using LightRoom, now I would probably use the dehaze a touch and possibly the sharpening tool
In my camera bag
Nikon D5200 18-55 Nikkor kit lens Nikkor 55-300 and my new pride and joy 35mm F1.8 Nikkor ( Love it) Gorilla pod polarizing filters variable ND filter. spare batteries Far too much junk that looks nothing but weighs a tonne
Feedback
Use your legs. Walk to places, walk the opposite way to the crowds. Use your legs to "zoom" Use your legs to crouch Stand on tip toes. Don't be afraid to look a prat and lie on the floor.
