Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Sintra-Cascais Natural Park in 2011, i just recently had discover this place and loved the ambiance of it, but it needed the right weather. This is a region that has a lot of foggy days, so i returned several times until i got the conditions i wanted. It has become one of my favorites places to shoot near Lisbon.
Time
This was taken at the end of the day, the weather forecast was favorable to fog at the end of the day here. So i packed my gear and went there and discovered the perfect mood i was hoping for, i took several shots that day, but this one is definitely my favorite.
Lighting
The lighting used here was only natural light.
Equipment
I used a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L, a Camera Remote and a Manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
Mostly was that lonely swing in the middle of the forest, it caught my eye and in the right conditions it could make a wonderful image, but when i discovered this location, it was a bright clear day, it didn't have that special feeling, that's why i returned to this place several times until i got the conditions I've wanted to this shot, but even then I continue to visit this area.
Editing
There is always some kind of post-processing in most images, but it is also very important to do the best work possible on the shooting process, that way you wont need to spend much time at the computer. This image didn't need much work, basically it was converting to Black and White, contrast and levels.
In my camera bag
It really depend on what i'm shooting and where. The basic are my Canon 5DMark II, a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L, a tripod, a Camera Remote, a LEE polarizer and some LEE ND filters. Also sometimes i also take a Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM and a Samyang 14mm f/2.8mm
Feedback
I think preparation, perseverance and patience is the best advise for any photographer, because we can't rely just in luck, if you prepare your shoot journeys, you'll have a better change to get great results (Check the weather, the landscape, the sun position, select some spots to shoot, but have some flexibility to search for new ones, you'll be amazed the number of time you can find some great spots by doing this). Go early to better explore the area and to be able to have time to prepare the gear and the best composition.
