Behind The Lens

Location
Fort Williams Park - Portland Headlight
Time
Late morning, after stopping at Scratch Bakery in South Portland for their infamous sea salt bagels.
Lighting
It was a tricky shot since the sun was bright even behind the clouds. It had just rained, so the clouds started to break.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D7200 with a Nikon 18-140 kit lens on a Manfrotto tripod. Despite the sun behind the clouds, it was still too bright to do a long-exposure time, so I used a Rangers ND16 filter with a remote to get the perfect exposure time.
Inspiration
I love this location, but I wanted to capture something new, and the way the waves were coming in inspired me to try a long exposure of America’s favorite lighthouse.
Editing
I always post-process in Lightroom. Sometimes, even just a vignette can make or break a photograph, so I took out some of the purples that I got from my lens and added some drama to the sky to give it that moody, yet soft look.
In my camera bag
I keep an ever-changing and expanding array of lenses. However, two lenses that I always have with me a 50mm (Nikon) prime Lena that I use practically every day. Another favorite is a 15-30 Tamron Wide angle that I shoot a bunch of night photography with.
Feedback
I love being inspired by other photography, but rather than trying to replicate another artist, I really want to let the situation inspire me. Life will speak if we’ll be quiet long enough to listen.
