Awesome

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Kananaskis Country Alberta Canada.
Time
This was taken during the golden hour and in winter it gets dark early. This was around 3 pm.
Lighting
I love this time of the day when the lighting is soft and gold.
Equipment
I used my tripod and a small aperture to help catch those sharp rays through the trees.
Inspiration
My inspiration came from the theme of the week during my 365 day project.
Editing
I usually do minor adjustments in ACR such as bringing up the contrasts a bit and lowering the highlights.
In my camera bag
On this day I only brought my 16-35 mm lens attached to my D800 and my tripod because I knew what kind of image I wanted to capture.
Feedback
A tripod is your best friend when using a small aperture, it helps to eliminate camera shake when using a longer shutter speed.
