Behind The Lens

Location
Photo was taken in Aegina island - Greece. The name of the place I took this photo is "Ancient olive Grove". There are hundreds of trees around this place and they are aged more than 500 years old.
Time
I took this picture at 02:00 midnight.
Lighting
I use a led flashlight and In front of it was a piece of cloth to get as much as I can a "soft" light. I was moving around to enlightenment the parts of the area I wanted while the camera was at 30" mode.
Equipment
I use a tripod and a nikon d610 with a nikkor 24-70mm f 2.8 .
Inspiration
This is part of a subject I working on with title "Agelong and perpetual". The reason is that in the island of Aegina is a fantastic olive grove with trees more than 500 years old. There aren't any houses around this place and I thing it was a fantastic idea to capture at night.
Editing
This photo processed with lightroom. I corrected the white balance, lightened the shadows and add some clarity.
In my camera bag
A nikon d610 with a nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 and a nikkor 50mm f 1.8. Prime lenses are my favourite and teaches you photography.
Feedback
Use a led flashlight to get the best focus of the subject you want to capture. I think the point in night photography is to choose colour temperature under 4000k. That gives you a sky that's pop out and low noise.
