Behind The Lens

Location
This photo has been taken in China at Longji.
Time
I took this photo close to noon.
Lighting
We had a long walk among a small village in the mountain. and when we finally arrive on the top, the sun goes out just for the photo.
Equipment
I use a Sony a55 camera. with his standard 18-55mm.
Inspiration
Our familly China backpack travel was unbelievable. Each day we discover a new place with a lot of history. And we dreamed about see a rice terrace. It's just amazing to think how human hands can change a mountain to get this landscape. No machin, just hand, courage and sweat.
Editing
Just increase a little bit the contrast and light to improve the real green we saw.
In my camera bag
Now I use a sony a77, I use a 500 mm miror from my Oooold minolta 7000i, a sigma lens 17-50 and a 100-300. I have ND filters, my tripod and my remote/intervallometer when I do timelapses. I also use this Peakdesign clip when I walk a lot and make some Birds (eagle/ Owl) photos.
Feedback
I was lucky for this one. Sometimes, youwork hard to get a photo, and sometime, some magical happens, the sun is here, the place is beautifull... I also like work hard to get the perfect shoot. But my best advice is never forget to feed your own memories by look with your eyes and let the camera off. Sometime I hunt night northern lights and when I get lucky to see a few second show where the sky get crazy I spend too much time on my camera to do the perfect setup. But never forget that the show is in front of you, not in your camera. Carpe Diem.
