Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the artificial lake called “Fratel”, the artificial lake is located in the river Tejo between Portalegre and Castelo Branco district.
Time
This is one of my favorite photos, all day I've been taking pictures of animals, plants, flowers and other things. Until it was sunset time, it is without doubt a magnificent place to shoot landscape, the photo was taken on April 21, 2015 at 7:12 PM.
Lighting
On this day when I reached the lake, I started just shooting, animals, plants, flowers and other things, when I noticed at the time, was already 19:12 pm. It was late and it all started to get darker, I hope one day I return to the same place to enjoy a little more light. I advise everyone to have a lot of attention to the hours and daylight.
Equipment
This was shot on a NikonD3000, with an 18-55mm lens. No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
It is the very nature that inspires me and sharing the photos i took to the world. These are the things that inspire me every day, nature is very fascinating and it is our duty protect it.
Editing
I did not use much postprocessing, i just used a little vibrance and contrast, i just know the basics of Photoshop, i'm still learning how to use, but it is without doubt a great tool for photography.
In my camera bag
I take always my backpack with my Nikon D3000 or D3100, some close-up filters, tripod and some memory cards.
Feedback
I advise all photographers to take pictures in manual mode, the results that we get in manual mode are impressive. I also advise you to always bring a tripod and to be always aware, the best photo moments happen when least expected. On this day I was so distracted with nature around me, that I began to photograph animals, plants and other things, when I noticed the time, it was already quite late and everything was getting dark.
