Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken along the Blue Ridge Hwy N. C.
Time
Late afternoon
Lighting
Lighting was pretty good, there was a little bit of cloud cover to defuse the sun, it was pretty much ideal conditions
Equipment
Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 10--20 3.5. Vanguard tripod. The settings for this shot were iso---100 f 8---with brackets at different shutter speeds
Inspiration
One of the reasons we decided to do the Blue ridge was all of the waterfalls along the way. We had a list of where most of them were located by mile marker. Some were right of the road and some we had to hike a between two- -five miles.
Editing
Yes this is H-D-R shot using Photomatix Pro 5 in natural settings
In my camera bag
Like every camera buff equipment keeps changing. Always depends on what we are after(landscape or wildlife).I usually have two bags loaded. For this trip i had the Nikon d7000, Nikon 70-200 2.8 and the sigma ultra wide angle 10-20 3.5 and the Nikon 105 macro 2.8 for the shots we were after.
Feedback
Advice is always similar. Have a idea on what kind of shots you are looking for. On this trip we were targeting waterfalls, but as always we were looking anything interesting. If possible use your tripod with a cable release or use your timer for best results. It is nice that my wife is almost always with me and has a different look she is trying to get, so we have quite a few angles and finale shots to choose from. If your shooting by yourself, try a few shots you think are right, and then if you have time capture some other shots from closer or further away. For waterfalls take some shots with a fast shutter to freeze the water and take a few with slow shutter. Then when you get home and view them you can decide. Some times i like one over the other, sometimes i use both, and sometimes i do not like either of them.
