This shot is just amazing in so many ways. The colors, the position and the story frozen in time makes it so calming,and exciting at the same time. I love this shot so much. I look forward to more

Behind The Lens

I took this photo at Li river in Yangshuo, a small town near Guilin, China.
Late afternoon.
Shooting against the light in the late afternoon is tricky, I have to shoot 3 exposures for this.
I shot this handheld. I use Canon 5D mk III, 16-35 F4 L.
Cormorant fishing is a dying art. The traditional fishing got replaced by the modern fishing and the use of technology therefore It is less and less practice among the fishermen these days. There are not so many cormorants fishermen left nowadays and soon there will be none.
I decreased the highlight, increased details in the shadow, using warm filter in photoshop.
In my camera bag
My Canon 5D mk III, 24-70 2.8 L II, 16-35 4 L, and sometimes 70-200 2.8 L II.
The best season to photograph the cormorant fisherman is in Oct. At this time the water in Li river is very still and clear.
