Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was shot while on vacation on a Palawan beach in the Philippine Islands.
Time
My wife and I were at a restaurant with beach seating waiting for our fresh seafood dinner to be served when this sunset presented itself. It was an outstanding way to wrap up a day of exploring the island with great fresh seafood and a beautiful sunset on the water as the fishing boats and the tourist boats came in for the night.
Lighting
The lighting for this shot is all provided by nature and good fortune to be in the right place at the right time
Equipment
The equipment for this shot is really simple as I only had a single camera with me because I really didn't feel like carrying much since I was going to dinner. I shot the photo hanheld with a Nikon D810 body and the 105mm prime lens.
Inspiration
The inspiration for this photo came from being in the right place at the right time. I thought this amazing sunset would be the best souvenir possible to remember the evening
Editing
I have not yet learned to process photos. So the greatest majority of photos I have are as the came from the camera. Once in a while I will ask a friend to edit something for me. It is my plan to learn some photo-processing this year because i can see the value in having the ability to fix some issues when they occur.
In my camera bag
My kit contains a Nikon D810, which has been my goto setup with a Nikkor 105 mm f2.8 lens. Recently I upgraded my second body to a Nikon D500. I bought this body for it's lowlight capabilities. Normally the Nikkor 16-80mm f2.8-4 lens resides on the D500 and is the setup I carry when I want to travel light. For those special occasions where I need a wide view the Tamron 10-24mm f3.5-4.5 fills the void and a Tamron 150-600mm f5-6.3 helps me reach out long and far for those subjects that don't like us getting close or the animals that might cause severe bodily harm. The Nikon speedlight system works wonders for all my supplemental lighting and I Manfrotto tripod when needed.
Feedback
The advice I would offer for anyone trying to get a similar photo would be to carry your camera wherever you go, shoot what you see and spend a lot of time in settings where such scenes are possible. And last but not least, relax and have fun
