Behind The Lens

Taken from a friends apartment building balcony in Toronto
I took this photo at around 10pm in the winter time so it was cold about -10 celcius or colder I cant remember exactly but I was wearing gloves, jacket, hat and warm socks to bare the weather.
It was interesting timing this photo because I was waiting for the train to come towards me but I actually started my exposure as the train that was going east into the city came into the frame and was lucky enough that the west bound train was coming not to far behind. Timing is key when it comes to photography and also sometimes just getting lucky and trying something different can get you a result better than what you thought.
I shot this on a tripod and also used my bag as a stabilizer on the bottom of the tripod to stabilize the shot better because it was a long exposure on a windy balcony. Shot on Canon 5d mark iii with Tamron 24-70mm
I'm inspired by architecture and cityscapes/ landscapes mostly with my photography for passion work. I really enjoy taking long exposures and trying to paint a picture with the light lines. I only had access to this viewpoint for a certain amount of time so I wanted to take advantage of the location.
I strive on doing as little post production as possible with my images and achieve as much in camera as possible. I did bring down the highlights a bit in this photo but I was pretty happy over all with the colours and exposure of this photo.
In my camera bag
I always carry my lens pen, blower and lens cleaners because its important to me not to have any dust or things on my lens. I normally always carry my lee filter 100mm system with my big stopper and nd 0.9 graduated filter. I love my prime lenses, 100mm L macro Canon 2.8, Canon 35mm 1.4 usm, Canon 50mm 1.8 and carry them with my all the time. With that I use a remote timer to get my exposures longer than 30 seconds and I also use the trigger for taking photos when I'm on sticks. I also like playing around with my lens ball when I'm feeling creative or have a good idea for it. For a quick fix I keep my leatherman handy for anything I might need to cut, tighten or screw. A flashlight and headlight are normally in my bag as well for night shooting.
Experiment and keep practicing until you achieve the image you are aiming to get. The more photos you take the better you become.
