Behind The Lens

Location
Reykjavik, Iceland
Time
Mid Morning
Lighting
Natural light
Equipment
Nikon D800 14-24mm F2.8 Lens Hand Held so I could get over the railing as far as possible ISO 1600 F8 1/80SS
Inspiration
I love spiral staircases and had heard about this one so I knew I had to get this shot!
Editing
This was shot in raw so I did basic adjustments in ACR (Adobe camera raw) and then used a little NIK to bring out more detail and ambience in the lighting.
In my camera bag
I always carry two bodies so I can have a wide angle and zoom, normally the D4 with the 70-200mm and the D810 with either the 24-70mm or 14-24mm lenses attached. I like to work the same subject wide and tighter for detail shots if possible from lots of different angles.
Feedback
Be careful! Use a tripod if possible for more depth of field, just wasn't possible here. I shoot a lot in low light so I'm pretty steady but would always prefer a tripod when doing architecture or landscape.
