Behind The Lens

Location

The photo has been taken in the swimming pool of the therme of Villach in Austria .

Time

Afternoon

Lighting

The light in this case was not essential: the weather was overcast and threatened a snowfall

Equipment

i used my GoPro 4

Inspiration

My idea was to experience a series of portraits of my son holding the camera half in the water. In the midst of many shots , this was really nice and special.

Editing

Only the b/w processing

In my camera bag

Nikon D800 mounted with the new Tamron 15-35 f2,8, and the GoPro 4 black edition

Feedback

The only thing I can recommend , is to always try new things , trying again and again until you reach an original and unique results
