Behind The Lens

Location

This was down in Oamaru In the south Island of New Zealand

Time

Well I'd entered an old stone church about mid day and decided to have a peek through on of the side doors and much to my surprise this old stairwell was found

Lighting

It was quite dull inside but a certain amount of light entered through the old headlight windows

Equipment

The Nikon d7100 was used hand held in this instance.

Inspiration

It was such an interesting subject with the old stone walls.

Editing

Yes I worked on this a little to lighten it up using photoshop

In my camera bag

Well I have the Nikon d7100 and the Nikon d800 both great cameras Plus a couple of medium priced lenses. I believe you can capture beautiful images without breaking the bank.

Feedback

Lighting is important although you can do a lot in Photoshop to enhance an image to create the desired effect
