Behind The Lens

Last year I was traveling from time to time to Poland for the business. Working until the end of the day almost. After all, I was taking my camera, rent a car and visiting some places around. The shot was taken in the Wielkopolskie area. This area of Poland is flat as hell and mostly related to agriculture.
The shot was taken when the day was coming to the end. Just staying there and getting what end of the day is giving and enjoying the view looking on curves coming from the ground and tree.
Nothing special I would say. Just trying to get sharp shot while the day was coming to the end and to get not so noisy shot. I did not increase ISO in purpose. The most important thing, in that case, was to find a suitable angle to get what I was thinking to get, means a really nice view of the curves play.
I did use my old fellow means NIKON D90 and Sigma 17-70. No tripod or any other special tools were used in that case.
I have seen it traveling around after coming back to the hotel. The beauty of the combination of nature and the human hand. I could not resist the beauty of this place, simply.
In that particular shot, I enhanced colors to reflect what I saw at that time due to the fact that there was insufficient light coming from the sun. Almost no sun at all. And of course, vignette and some special filter to let the recipient concentrate on the curves.
In my camera bag
Well, I use my second fellow during my travels means case logic backpack. Nothing special inside. I am not professional. So, I use one set: NIKON D90 + Sigma 17-70. That's enough. Of course not forgetting about the snacks.
Wherever you go take the camera with you. They are saying that we have golden hours to make the pictures. Maybe, but I do not stick to this so often due to the fact I am not a professional photographer and I do not have time to stick to the rules. Simply, try to make as many shots as possible in every time of the day. You do not need sunny day. Cloudly one is even more interesting. Think about the shot before. What crop, the position you are going to use. You can easily check it and use it for the best shot. That will make your life easier. Do not give up, never. Do not lose the opportunity. You will never have the same condition. And remember that's not equipment who is making you the photographer. That's you, only you. Limited equipment is making you more creative. So, go, take the shots and share them with others.
