Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo in Siberia, on the famous Lake Baikal.

Time

The picture was taken in the afternoon.

Lighting

The weather was overcast. The landscape was lit only by the diffused light of the sky.

Equipment

Camera Canon EOS 5D mark III, with fish-eye lens.

Inspiration

The amazing purity of the ice and numerous cracks forming fantastic patterns in the ice thickness.

Editing

There was no special post-processing.

In my camera bag

The bag usually contains Canon EOS 5D mark III, Canon EOS 5D SR, Lens 21/2,8; 24-70/2,8 L USM; 70-200/4 L IS USM; 300/4 L IS USM. In the studio I have 50/1, 8 STM; 85/1, 4 L IS USM; 135/2 L USM.

Feedback

Don't expect good weather for travel. Shoot at any time of the day or night.
