Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken at a small loch in Scotland called Loch Rusky near Aberfoyle.

Time

This was taken at dawn after leaving home during the night to drive to the location hoping for some misty conditions and of course some nice light. It was during summer so sunrise was at 5.30am!

Lighting

All natural light just waiting for the right moment for the light to highlight the boats and the clouds in the sky.

Equipment

Canon 1D X with a 24-70mm lens on a Gitzo tripod - don't think I used any filters for this particular image

Inspiration

I have seen some amazing images from this location from a fellow photographer, David Mould and thought I would pay this loch a visit on this particular occasion

Editing

Processing of the RAW file in Lightroom and then dodging and burning select parts of the image for contrast

In my camera bag

My 1D X and 24-70 is used for the vast majority of images and almost all my images are taken on a tripod

Feedback

Just make the effort to get up early and visit such locations - some times it is about just being in the right place at the right time
