Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on top of the Victory Column in Berlin.
Time
Late afternoon I think.
Lighting
The clouds are not so pretty but the colors of the trees and the perspective of the road is what makes this photo special I think.
Equipment
I handheld this photo using the Sony A7R2 with the Sony Zeiss 24-70 f4 OSS.
Inspiration
I friend of mine took this photo a few days before on his Android phone and the colors and perspective just blew me away. I have lived in Berlin for a few years but never managed to climb up there. His photo inspired me to do so.
Editing
Sure, the usual stuff in Lightroom and some photoshop to make the image pop a little more. I usually shoot in a very flat color profile, so I have the maximum of information to work with later.
In my camera bag
Batteries! Other than that: A wonderful Sirui carbon fiber travel tripod, the Sony 24-70 2.8 GM, Sony 70-200 f4, Haida filters, cleaning kit and remote trigger would be my basic kit. Other than that it depends on the location. If I shoot late I might bring a head torch as well or other stuff.
Feedback
Check out what other photographers are doing and try to adapt it to your own style? Epic photographs usually happen in epic places with the right lighting and equipment.
