Behind The Lens

Location
This Picture was established on a lightning at the svabian alb neaby my hometown Reutlingen in the southwestern germany. It was one of the most active lightning season in history of this region.
Time
Starting at dusk i changed my location to a field between Reutlingen an Tübingen. The camera was mounted on a tripod directed in sight to the Albtrauf. The shutteroptions where fixed between 10 to 30 seconds. So i took one and a half hour on the field.
Lighting
Back home i sighted the taken pictures and sorted the best of them with lightnings. With lightroom i developed several pictures and staked them with photoshop. This picture depends on 5 several pictures and shows lightnings which appears at the shooting time.
Equipment
I used my two cameras. First one the Sigma 10-20 mm wide-angle lens mounted on a Canon 700D and a Tokina 11-16 mm mounted on a Sony A 6000. I used the tripod C4i+53P from Rollei, because i appreciate this tripod causing of it´s light weight and it´s clearance heigth.
Inspiration
muss I love sommer lightnings. My inspiration are all kinds of natural weather formations causing of the most expressional and changeable themes. These moments that takes only parts of a second let me go out of my home to bann it for eternaty. The nearby country submontaned the svabian alb, offers the golden opportunity that natural beauty is located few steps in front of the door and not thousands of kilometer away.
Editing
With lightroom i developed several pictures and staked them with photoshop. This picture depends on 5 several pictures and shows lightnings which appears at the shooting time.
In my camera bag
Especially taking pictures of weather phenomenoms my cameras backpack starting to burst. My Equipment is packed several and i carry them in an Aspen Sport Long March (70 liters) backpack. This one offers me enough space to carry needfull things like raincoats, water bottles, chair cussion, helmet - needfull if it hailed - flashlight etc. . My favorite cameras are the Canon 700D, the Sony Alpha 6000. A Sony NEX 5 is stored in my car. The Canon lenses are mounted on the Sony cameras by an Commlite Auto Focus EF-NEX EF-EMOUNT FX Lens Mount Adapter. The Tamron 70-300 mm, the Sigma 10-20 mm and at last the Tokina 11-16 mm for night shots are building with the Kit-lens 18-55 mm my "first platoon".
Feedback
Look out for a good location. In my nearby located area i know every dirt track and every tree. Keep yours eyes open and discover every time your out in the nature a new location. If you found them, look around for your own protection: Are there a lake, a tree or power supply lines nearby? Are you at the highest point in the area? All these are Things you have to think about. Nature, especially storms and all other kinds of meteorological disturbances are current. In case of doubt go back to your car, sit in the rear trunk a take your photos from this place. As an usefull tip... don´t use your new car. Use the old one... my car ist 22 years old and took some "hailed gifts"
