Behind The Lens

Location

Photo is taken at Strommingbodan lighthouse island. Island is located in Gulf of Bothnia between Finland and Sweden, also called as Bothnia Narrows. There is also old hoses where lighthouse keepers has lived until 1963, when lighthouse was automated. Lighthouse itself is built 1885 and it is 12 meters tall. Place is unique, with lot of seabirds and salmons are swimming to north in autumn passing this island.

Time

Late evening. During July sun hardly sets so there is light available almost through the night.

Lighting

Summer night light is unique. Sun hardly set's during night and gives nice soft light in the evening.

Equipment

Photo was taken with Samsung S5 smartphone. I set the phone on top of camping equipment and take the shot.

Inspiration

The atmosphere. Lonely island, tent, boat in harbor, summer, all that I like. There is complete silence at these island and you really can feel to be part of the nature. Sea outside the island is strong, don't mess with it.

Editing

Photo is post processed in Lightroom to find the mood that I saw during this moment.

In my camera bag

Canon 5D mk ii, lenses 14mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm and 400mm. Flash and tripod.

Feedback

Search the optimal light, because it's everything in the photo. Capture moments that you like to remember. This photo was taken with smartphone, I just have packed the "heavy" gear, and wanted to take one more photo. So you may say that best camera is what you have available in that specific moment.
