Behind The Lens

Location
I took this image on a trip to Iceland earlier this year in February. (2017) Intrepid photo tour leader Mark Andreas Jones by a Keflavik lighthouse.
Time
About 10.30pm
Lighting
Composed from more than one image. One exposed for the lighthouse. One for the northern lights and also one where I lit Mark with a Lume cube held by a fellow photographer who I edited out later.
Equipment
Nikon D810, 14-24mm lens, Gitzo tripod, Lume Cube for lighting.
Inspiration
Mark is a great character who has lead many trips to Iceland so I wanted to capture him against a back drop he loves.
Editing
Yes...the image was conceived in my head and the elements were created on several images frames. One for the lighthouse, one for the northern lights and a separate one of Mark lit by a Lume cube. It was all processed in Adobe Bridge then combined in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
I normally carry 2 x Nikon D810's, , Nikon 14-24mm lens Nikon 19mm Tilt and Shift Lens, f2.8 lens,Nikon f2.8 24-70mm lens, Nikon f4 70-200mm lens. Tamoron 90mm Macro, Gitzo Tripod. 3 x Nikon SB910 flash guns.
Feedback
Plan the shot using a tripod to maintain the image frame. Experiment with different speeds etc to capture and harvest as much detail as possible. Compose in Photoshop with masks and layers.
