Behind The Lens

Location
This bridge and water cascades is located approximately 100 KM southwest of Plovdiv in the little village of Sitovo, Rodopi, Plovdiv 4104, Bulgaria. We were with a guide and asked for photographic opportunities.
Time
Late afternoon, about 3:00-4:00 pm.
Lighting
It was a clear, sunny day, but the canopy prevented direct sunlight.
Equipment
Canon A1 SLR (film) camera Kodacolor 200 ISO film, tripod, 28 mm Tamron lens.
Inspiration
You can see the colors were amazing by themselves and the water cascading over the rocks made for a dreamy session.
Editing
Yes, I used Topaz Adjust and then the Boost filter to cause the photos to "pop."
In my camera bag
Now I use a Nikon D5100 DSLR with Nikkor lenses.
Feedback
At the time I capture this phenomenal photo I had been shooting for almost 20 years so I would say patience, lots of studying on your own and getting assistance from professional photographers online when you need extra tips.
