Behind The Lens

Location

Castello del Boccale Si trova in provincia di Livorno,Toscana,Italia. è un grande maniero che si innalza a Livorno, a sud del quartiere di Antignano, lungo la strada costiera per Quercianella nel tratto di costa chiamato "Boccale" o "Cala dei Pirati".

Time

I kicked before sunset on a somewhat windy day

Lighting

I tried to give the picture a mysterious look. The light that struck the castle was great and I wanted to give a silky effect to the water of the sea

Equipment

Eos 6d with 24 70 f4 nd filter 1000 tripod manfrotto

Inspiration

I searched for location on google maps because it inspires me and I've been looking for a windy day to give this water that silky effect and post it in black and white to give a mystical effect

Editing

I used lightroom both for basic settings and for black and white output

In my camera bag

I have a 6d canon with a 24 70 f4 A 16 35 f4 A 70 200 f4 A 85 mm f 1.8 and a Samyang 14 mm

Feedback

Firstly buy filters nd to take shots with longer time, look for the right situation to take shots and shutter speeds
