Behind The Lens

Location
This was shot was taken at Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park on September 25th 2016.
Time
It was one of those mornings in the park where any destination would have been amazing. There was a storm clearing from the night before and the morning light was stunning. I decided to start my day at Schwabachers Landing to catch the morning light. After mother natures display was done there I drove up to Oxbow Bend and captured this shot at 11:00 A.M.
Lighting
At this time of morning I already missed the magic hour, but with the help of a Hoya circular polarizer filter I was still able to get a great result with the late morning light.
Equipment
The camera was a Nikon D5300 with the Nikon 18-55mm lens, Sunpak tripod.
Inspiration
I have the pleasure of living pretty close to Grand Teton and when the photography bug bit me back in 2012 and seeing photography of the park, I wanted to capture my own spin on Oxbow. When you look online and walk through the photography shops in Jackson and see the beautiful photography of the Teton area that really helped inspire me as well. I want people to have that feeling of being there when they look at my work, that also inspires me to work hard at capturing a stunning shot.
Editing
I did tone map this shot using photomatix.
In my camera bag
I always have my Nikon D500 and my go to lens, the Nikon 16mm-80mm. I also carry the Tamron 150mm-600mm. Nikon 35mm, Nikon 85mm macro, Sigma 18mm-300mm, Tokina 11mm-16mm, Nikon 18mm-55mm, Nikon 55mm-300mm. Sunpak pro tripod. Also many filters, cards, maglite flash light, cable release, etc.
Feedback
Just keep trying and be who you are. It takes a lot of practice and a little post processing never hurts. I love shooting in RAW anymore and really like the results you can get without over photo shopping an image. Be inspired by an image or a moment and then put your own spin on it. Get out of your comfort zone, move 15 feet to the left or right, mix up the norm with your own prospective. But over all just have fun and enjoy the moments. The camera helps capture the moment, but also store that moment in your SD card (your memory). Have fun and enjoy.
