Behind The Lens

I took this photo in the city of Sevilla. The city has many nice spots for photography. I normally go there for a walk and everytime I find something different
It was at night, after the blue hour. I was taking photos of the Cathedral from a different angle, then I saw the tram passing and I thought it would be a nice idea to play with the lights of it and get a different composition.
I wanted to frame the tower of the cathedral in a different way. I knew I wanted a long exposure photo to get the lights of the tram so I set up my tripod and i waited for the next one to come. I click on the shutter when the tram was already in front of me so i could see the end and get the a few milliseconds of the cathedral tower itself.
I used a Sony A7 with the 28-70 Lens. Of course i used a tripod as I wanted a long exposure, I love taking blue hours and night photos so the tripod is always with me.
Seville always inspired me to take photos, it's my second home so I love this city. Walking around you can get very interesting spots. The cathedral tower you can see it from almost every place from the city and it is always illuminated by night. This one is just different because of the lights of the tram. Cars are not allowed to drive in most part of the old city so the tram is the best option to get some light trails.
I did some basic Lightroom adjustments to get more of the colors. Highlights up, shadows down, white balance and added some clarity. Then on Photoshop I corrected the perspective a little bit.
In my camera bag
In my bag I have a Sony A7 and a Sony A77 the first one is always with the 28-70mm and for the A77 I most of the time use the 11-18mm on it. I also have a 50mm and a 70-300mm. Not in my bag but always with me a stable Manfroto tripod and the cheapest thing that I got but for sure the most valuable thing, a remote!
The only advice that I can say is to walk around and look and play with your camera. In this kind of photos it's always better to use a tripod. But if you don't have one at that time use any thing available around you. Sometimes just placing a camera on the ground gives you a very new perspective of the world.
