Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken at The Morgan Arboretum, this is a 245 hectare forested reserve, situated on the McGill University Macdonald Campus in Ste. Anne de Bellevue on the western tip of the island of Montreal, Quebec Canada.

Time

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 at 5:10 PM

Lighting

For me, this was the perfect time to go out and appreciate the beautiful autumn colors and take some images, because I have learned that sometimes it is better to take them an hour before or after sunset. Sunset in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, QC, Canada Wednesday, November 8, 2017 (EST) 4:33 PM Civil Twilight During civil twilight, there is still enough natural light to see and distinguish objects perfectly. Sky is very bright and the color of clouds can be red, orange and yellow to magenta and blue. Of course, it always depends on weather conditions and dust particles in suspension. At the beginning of civil twilight, just after sunset, the colors of the sky change most rapidly. Clouds in the west are illuminated by orange-red sunlight, while the ones in the east remain in blue and indigo. Generally speaking, civil twilight lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the season and latitude. (Ref: http://petapixel.com/2014/06/11/understanding-golden-hour-blue-hour-twilights/)

Equipment

Camera information Make: Panasonic (Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens) Model: DMC-GX8 Lens: Lumix G-Vario 12-60/F3.5-5.6 Focal Length: 43.00mm (in 35mm: 86mm) Exposure: 1/100 sec; f5.6; ISO 800; normal program; pattern metering Flash: Did not fire Tripod: This image was taken handheld

Inspiration

One of my favorite ways to relax is to go out and walk in the woods with my camera, for some reason, I seem to forget about everything else when I do. So if you want to make me happy, bring me out to a beautiful place so I can go play with my camera; this is exactly what my daughter did that day. While she was walking ahead of me with her dad, I was admiring the beautiful view and trying to put in practice some of the composition rules I have learnt and when I saw this path, all I could think about was Wow! this is beautiful, I have the perfect subject to try to apply some of those rules.

Editing

I did not do much post-processing for this image, all I did was develop the raw image in Photoshop and then I applied a HighPass of 0.4 and adjusted the brightness to 4.

In my camera bag

LUMIX GX8 4K Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Panasonic DMC-GF1 Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Pancake Lens Panasonic Lumix 45-200 Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60

Feedback

Go out and have fun and don't always try to take images when the sun is way up there, the light after sunset is beautiful.
