Behind The Lens

Location
The beautiful city of Porto and its river, always bring different environments. It may be fog, sun, clouds ...... each day a color, a different light. It is worth repeating this place several times because the picture will always be different
Time
This is a place where we make good records both at sunrise and at sunset. This day was dedicated to the sunrise. With the sunrise scheduled for 6 am, at least an hour before, the inspection to the place begins to be made, looking for the best framing and composition. The material only leaves my backpack when the image to be registered is drawn in my brain.
Lighting
The light changes very quickly. There is no time to make many changes. Preparing the photo in advance is key. Several shots are needed to get lucky to catch the standing boats. The river does not usually collaborate.
Equipment
Camera - Nikon D750 Lens - Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Tripod - Manfrotto Filter - Polarizer 16mm/ƒ/8/1s/ISO 100
Inspiration
The transition between blue hour and golden hour is the best time to take the photo. In those few minutes the golden light illuminates the houses keeping the cold colors of the shadows. It's this contrast that fascinates me.
Editing
I use Photoshop in image processing. Luminosity masks are fantastic, to control the light
In my camera bag
In addition to the lenses and machine (s), always follow me: - Wired and wireless remote control - Filters ND, GND and polarizer (despite being a fervent adept of multiple exposures) - Cleaning cloths - Reserve batteries, charged - Flashlight
Feedback
Preparing a photo is key. Knowing where light will appear and at what time, using online tools is a habit. Going several times to the same place makes a lot of difference. The end result is always different. When the tide can influence the end result, this is another key piece of information. In this case, the transition of the tide is fundamental for the boats to be stopped. Arrive early and do not immediately mount the tripod. Pick up the machine and look for the best framing and composition with the machine in hand. This preparation should leave open the realization of the photo in several places, without having to think much, at the time the light appears. Imagine the final result in your mind.
