looks like a fun time.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from Ossuccio on Lake Como.
Time
It was 11 PM during the fireworks on the San Giovanni Festival, end of June.
Lighting
I used the fireworks to enlight the subject.
Equipment
I used a Sony a7S with a 16-35 mm lens on a Rolley travel tripod.
Inspiration
It's 5 years we go to this festival to shoot fireworks, but this year we wanted to find a new perspective and to try something different. I think we did it!
Editing
Normal lightroom adjustment plus some photoshop retouching :)
In my camera bag
I usually take my Sony a7S with a 16-35 mm Zeiss lens and a Sony RX10 III, a tripod and a couple of ND filters.
Feedback
Just experiment new perspective and ideas instead of shooting the same angles of everyone else. If you're in a crowded place, just go somewhere else!
