Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the beach during low tide at the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse in Mendocino county, CA.
Time
This photo was right at sunset, around 630-7pm during the earlier spring hours.
Lighting
The lighting during this moment was truly magical (as sunsets are)! Standing amongst hundreds of tide pools reflecting the horizon was more than I could ever put into words.
Equipment
For this photo I used a Sony A7RII with the Sony G-master 24-70mm FE/ 2.8. In order to get my hand in the shot I used a remote shutter that works from an app I can synch between my phone and camera called 'PlayMemoriesMobile'
Inspiration
Well, I had just recently found two different sized crystal balls. After seeing some other crystal ball photos I decided to go out and try a couple of things differently. Such as, using one crystal ball as part of the field I'm trying to reflect.
Editing
I do a ton of post-processing in some of my photos! However, this one did not need that. Subtle curve adjustments is all!
In my camera bag
Normally, you can catch me with a collapsible tripod, a couple of memory cards, extra batteries, several soft cloths, a Sony A7RII, a 24-70mm FE/ 2.8, and a 50mm FE/ 1.8.
Feedback
Sometimes it takes awhile to get the unique shot you may be looking for. In many instances I've found that if I stay a little longer, and shoot a bit more I will stumble across the photo I've been looking for all day. During this photo, I left in the morning with quite a few ideas but didn't hit my mark until sunset and 5 miles or so worth of hiking. All in all, if there's any advice I could give; it'd be to hang in there!
