Behind The Lens

Location
Umhlanga Durban South Africa
Time
Approx 19:00
Lighting
It was truly unique to see such a deep blue cast at sunset
Equipment
Canon 700D EF-S 10-18mm ND8 neutral density filter Tripod Shutter release cable
Inspiration
The lighting & cloud cover was really unique so I grabbed my gear & headed to the nearest location to use it the best I could
Editing
Lightroom adjustments to bring shadows & highlights more into balance. Photoshop to correct the horizon due to wide angle lens distortion aswell as minimal colour enhancements to bring back the sight I had with my naked eye

Feedback
Reach the spot you plan to shoot at way before sunrise/sunset to figure out your composure & what you rig must consist of. Light changes every few seconds so I shoot as many exposures as I can to make sure I don't miss the peak of what the scene & weather has to offer at that hour. I always try to incorporate as many elements as I can into my composition so that every quadrant of the image has something that pleases the viewer. Don't be afraid to experiment & break rules as doing so can sometimes make for great photographers. Good luck & happy shooting :)
