Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the world famous Lake Louise in Alberta Canada
Time
I remember very vividly that this was taken in the early afternoon. I had taken my wife on a date up to the ice carving festival. We looked at all the sculptures in the morning, had lunch, and we were just walking back to the truck.
Lighting
Lake Louise rests in a alpine valley of huge peaks. With it being winter, the sun has a very low angle. In this particular shot, the south western slopes were shaded and the north eastern slops had beautiful warm rays lighting them up.
Equipment
This was actually shot with a Nikon kit lens, it was the 18-140 f/3.5-5.6. I only took that lens that day as it offered the most versatility for the entire day.
Inspiration
For me it was two things, the families having fun out skating and the symmetry the river channel and the trees offered. I felt that those two paired with the majestic Rocky Mountains would make for a great capture.
Editing
I used Lightroom 6, very little post processing was done. I brought out the shadows a touch, dropped the highlights a little and gave it some clarity. It is probably one of my least touched photos in regards to post processing.
In my camera bag
I usually have my Nikon D7100, Sigma 17-50 f/2.8, Nikon 35 f/1.8, Tamron 70-200 f2.8, Nikon SB-800, a tripod, and I use the LowPro AW 450 for it all
Feedback
For me I for moments that awe me. If I am out and about and I am taken back by the beauty of a scene I make sure to capture it. So my advice is to carry your camera every where and when you see those breath taking scenes, then take a moment to capture it. Also, capture it in a few different ways; try different F stops, focal lengths, and angles. Most of all just take lots of pictures and have fun.
