Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Ferrybridge power station, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
Time
I arrived at 5pm and shot images from around 5.30pm to 6.30pm to capture the transition through dusk.
Lighting
I wanted to capture the detail from last remaining daylight and blend it into the blue hour with car and truck light trails.
Equipment
Nikon D810 70-200mm f4 Nikkor Lens, Gitzo Series 4 tripod. Nikon cable release.
Inspiration
I loved the way the motorway flowed in a beautiful s-curve and the power station was due to close days later so it was an historic capture too of an important landmark event.
Editing
I chose the two best images from around 100 shots taken. As I had not moved the camera position at all they aligned easily in photoshop and then I used layer masks to blend the best bits from each image layer. I then flattened it and used the define filter in NIK filters to reduce the noise in the sky and a high pass filter set to overlay and 3 pixels to sharpen selective areas.
In my camera bag
I normally carry a Nikon D810, Nikon D800E back up body, Nikon 14-24mm lens f2.8 lens,Nikon f2.8 24-70mm lens, Nikon f4 70-200mm lens. Gitzo Tripod. 3 x Nikon SB910 flash guns.
Feedback
My advice to anyone trying to capture something similar is to carefully recce the scene and observe changes in lighting through to dusk. Arrive at least 30 mins before sunset time. Set up on a firm tripod and use a cable release to avoid knocking the camera. It's is important to not move the tripod through the normally 1 hour or so of capturing images. Watch the sky carefully for changes in light and cloud, they can be fleeting and you don't want to miss an epic moment. Bracket the exposure length I normally set my bracketing to -2, 0, +2, which for a Nikon D810 gives me much more information to harvest from for the final image without shooting too many needless frames. Bringing home an abundance of RAW image information is my main objective. I study the subject carefully, where there is movement I will bracket the shutter speed and ISO rating to give me a range of speed effected images from sharp to blurred. Where the image is static I will normally capture images of high a quality as possible using a low ISO rating then blend in images taken at higher ISO ratings where there is a visual advantage for example freezing action elements.
