Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the Transfagarasan Road in Romania, which was designated by Top Gear as being the best road in the world.
Time
That day, I left the office at 3:00 P.M. After I put my camping gear on the motorcycle, I went riding towards Cumpana Cabin and camping.
Lighting
The light is natural. No lighting equipment was used.
Equipment
I used the GoPro Hero 3 White Edition and the GoPro Chesty.
Inspiration
The photo is from a series of photos I made for a time-lapse.
Editing
Because the Hero 3 White doesn't shoot raw format files, I couldn't do much post-processing. Just a few tweaks on the contrast, shadows/highlights and saturation.
In my camera bag
My bag usually contains a Nikon D3100 body with the 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens, 55-200 mm f4-5.6 kit lens and a Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens. Also, a Nissin Di600 flash, a Yongnuo circular macro lamp, a Raynox DCR-250, various Cokin filters with adapters (circular polarization, full ND8, gradual ND2, gradual ND4 and gradual ND8), a cable remote, a tripod and lens-cleaning accessories. Sometimes, I also take my GoPro Hero3 White along with a smaller tripod. I also never leave home without a raincoat in my camera backpack.
Feedback
Although I am an amateur photographer, the best tips I can give are the following: - Always wait for good lighting. Shoot during the golden hours and, if you can't, always use a filter on your lens ; - Return, from time to time, to the locations where you took photos before, because you never know what details you might have missed ; - Never-ever shoot at eye level. Go down low or up high. Change the perspective of the view, but be careful about the composition of the shot ; - Use what you have and make so that the environment around you "works" in your favor.
