Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at The Haque train station. One of the busiest train stations in the Netherlands.
Time
As you can see on the clock it was 5:04 pm.
Lighting
It was late in the afternoon, so the sun was already getting lower on the horizon and because of the orientation of the building, the light came a little from the right. Therefore there was no direct sunlight getting into the train station. There wasn't a lot of light, so I had to use a tripod.
Equipment
I used my Sony A77II camera and Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 ART lens. The camera was mounted on a Velbon tripod and I triggered the shutter with a wired remote.
Inspiration
I made this photo while doing a photo shoot for a bachelor party with 10 giggling girls who were standing behind me. After this photo I turned around and said: 'Oh, you are here!'
Editing
Well, it's black and white, so I did some post-processing. Because it's black and white, I could put some more contrast and clarity into the photo. I lit up some of the shadows, but for the rest I didn't do that much...
In my camera bag
Normally my bag contains this: Camera: Sony A77II Lens1: Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 SSM Lens2: Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART Lens3: Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 ART Lens4: Minolta 35-70mm f3.5-4.5 Remote: Simple wired shutter release Tripod: Velbon Sherpa 5370D Filters: Genustech 77mm Eclipse ND Fader + various size adapters to fit it to every lens I have. Also I alway carry at least 2 extra fully charged original Sony batteries.
Feedback
Take your time to find your ideal composition. Search for nice lines and use those lines to make the depth of the frame stronger. In low light conditions you should almost always grab your tripod. Don't up your ISO or open your aparture, you will either introduce annoying noise or loose sharpness. Also don't forget to turn of any form of image stabilization when working from a tripod!
