Great color and balance

Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this image while on vacationing on the Southern Oregon Coast. I was truly inspired by the lush forest, early morning fog, and the sound of the ocean nearby. We stayed for a week and loved the area. We desired to live here permanently and a year later we found a home that looks the same as this cabin with 80 foot pine trees and natural foliage on our property. We love our new home.
Time
This image was taken early in the morning. I'm facing east as the sun has risen a bit and is trying to break through the fog.
Lighting
The fog diffused the light very well, hence few shadows and a limited dynamic range. It softens the image and helps tell the story of how quiet and peaceful the environment was.
Equipment
I shot this image with a Canon 5D MarkII. I used a Canon 24-80mm L series lens. No filters. I rarely shoot without a tripod.
Inspiration
I simply wanted to capture the cabin and area around it to share with family and friends. I've lived most of my life in the city with an arid environment. This lush quiet area was so refreshing.
Editing
I do post process which always includes getting the right white balance, making sure there are no blowouts and show plenty of detail in the shadows.I didn't have to do much to this image due to the great lighting.
In my camera bag
I keep it simple. I carry a wide angle lens 18-24mm and a 50mm prime. I do carry ND filters and a circular polarizer but they seldom get used. Plenty of backup batteries and memory cards and small brush and microfiber cloths. I also carry a camera rain hood. It is essential now that I live in Oregon because we get so much rain. When it rains, I also use the lens hood to keep the rain off the front of the lens.
Feedback
Walk around and look at the scene from several angles. Find something of interest to have in the foreground. The more unique it is, the better. Then wait for the light to be just right. This image would be completely different at high noon with harsh light.
