Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Astoria, Oregon along the Columbia River on April 4th, 2015 during our spring break vacation.
Time
This was near dusk and the rain was coming down good across the Columbia River. It was cold and a wonderful blue hour.
Lighting
The pier pilings were a neon green with moss growth. It was low tide near the mouth of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean.
Equipment
I used my tripod and my Nikon D600 with my Rokinon 14mm lens. I light painted the pier pilings with my small low powered head lamp. I also did a small long exposure to help smooth the water, only 2.5 seconds. Luckily the boats were not moving up the river, but seems to be parked. So the long exposure worked out.
Inspiration
I really liked the vivid green moss on the pier pilings against the blue hour scene. The green was all over the pier pilings and rocks. The scene had great leading lines that I was looking for that day to photograph.
Editing
I used Adobe's Lightroom 6 to bring down any highlights in the storm clouds off in the distance.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Nikon D600 and my spare camera a Nikon D7100. My go to lenses for what I like to shoot are my Rokinon 14mm 2.8, and my nifty 50 (Nikon 50mm 1.8). I also carry a Nikon 80-200mm 2.8 for any long shots I wish to get. Also in my bag are a rocket blower, head lamp, screw driver, several tripod plates, 10 stop ND filter and polarizer filter, and at times my Vixen Polarie Star Tracker for very long exposures.
Feedback
This shot was a simplier shot. At the blue hour make sure you always have your tripod, and turn off your vibration control when doing darker shots with long exposures. You can use a flash for lighting, but I prefer to use a separate head lamp that is a lot dimmer so I can paint the areas of the shot I want to be lit with more precision.
