Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in Hong Kong on the way don from seeing the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery.
It was around 4.30pm as we had arrived late in the day and we were on the last chairlift down the mountain, when I saw the potential shot transforming before my eyes. The sun was starting to set andvI saw the other chairlifts going up the mountain and thought wow, this could be a great shot.
The sun was my natural light and as it was setting it had a lovely warm orange glow that added such character to the shot.
My camera was a Canon EOS 100D. Just shows you what you can capture with what is essentially an entry level DSLR.
I am always looking to take different photographs, from different angels and perspective and create something unique.
The processing was acomplished in Photoshop CC where I added the sun rays through the cloud and radial blur filters.
In my camera bag
My bag is my life. My wife hates it, as it comes virtually everywhere with me and has my body, four lenses, flash, various Cokin filters, tripod, remote release, cleaning stuff and spare batteries.
I would always say, look for the different shot. Take in what's around you, think about how you are going to compose the photograph and what you are looking to achieve and then set your camera up and simply click away. Check your shots, adjust your settings and carry on.
