Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in Sabaudia, at a place called Torre Paola, shown here on the left.

Time

The photo was taken at about 22:00 to 22:30, on a night born to photograph the milky way and finished photographing lightning

Lighting

I was there with some friends, and we were just happy because we could not photograph the stars because of the many clouds. then the sky is illuminated. I wanted to share with all the spectacle of nature, and the majesty of those lightning.

Equipment

to realize this picture I used a Canon EOS 1100D SLR and lens tokina 11-16 f2.8 II, of course I used a tripod

Inspiration

It had much time chasing the lightning storms, and that evening, unexpectedly, we have seen one. for nothing in the world I could lose it

Editing

this photo is the sum of 4 shots from 30 seconds, united in photoshop with blending mode "difference"

In my camera bag

usually I carry with me my Canon 1100D, the tokina 11-16 and canon ef 50

Feedback

advice to anticipate the storm, stay out of the rain, to have so much patience. and a dose of luck
