Behind The Lens

The photo was taken on the Transfagarasan Road in Romania, which was designated by Top Gear as being the best road in the world.
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.
The light is natural. No lighting equipment was used.
I used the GoPro Hero 3 White Edition and the GoPro Chesty.
The photo is from a series of photos I made for a time-lapse.
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.
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.
