Behind The Lens

Location
Along a gravel road near Plato Saskatchewan Canada.
Time
This shot was taken around 7:00 pm. We followed this storm from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
Lighting
Storms can be tricky to photograph. It is actually very dark under these storm clouds, your eyes adjust to the darkness - but when you take the shot you realize how dark it is. Clear sky often gets blown out at the exposures necessary to capture detail under the clouds.
Equipment
I used a Canon 6D with a 24-70mm L 2.8 lens. No flash was used. I used my Manfrotto tripod and Ball head.
Inspiration
I love storms, and I love abandoned houses. When I saw this house with the low hanging shelf cloud racing towards it I knew I had to pull over to take some quick shots of it. We watched this storm initiate in Alberta, dropping a funnel cloud. It turned into a fast moving shelf cloud producing a lot of wind, rain and hail. I photographed the storm from 3:00 pm to 8:00pm when it started to lose power.
Editing
I edited a Raw file in Adobe Camera raw. Minor adjustments in clarity, saturation, shadows and highlights.
In my camera bag
I travel with Canon 6D and a 24-70 f/2.8 II as well as 16-35 f/2.8 II lens. I also carry a 7dmkII with 100-400 for any wildlife i might happen across.
Feedback
Find someone experienced at chasing storms and go with them for a few times. They will often be happy to have you along to share the cost of fuel. I started actively chasing storms 15 years ago and did not follow my own advice. I am lucky that nothing serious happened, but I came pretty close too many times.
