Behind The Lens

Location

It's taken at Park of the Nations, one of the most modern parts of Lisbon, Portugal.

Time

Just after sunset. It wasn't a great sunset, but the clouds helped.

Lighting

It was a very dramatic light, from a sunset that wasn't too colorful, and really brought up the greys on the water and buildings.

Equipment

Sony A65, Sigma 10-20, tripod, and a 10 stop ND filter.

Inspiration

It was a cloudy and windy day, so that was the main driver for the image.

Editing

A little for better controlling the light differences between top and bottom, and desaturation.

In my camera bag

Sony A65, a few lenses, tripod, and some filters.

Feedback

A tripod and a strong ND Filter is a must for this kind of shot. Other than that, the weather must help a little, with sme clouds, but not too many.
