Behind The Lens

Location
Beside a salt lake near the Gawler Ranges in outback South Australia
Time
It was taken at about 10pm at night.
Lighting
The tree was lit on fire by a bunch of rowdy drinkers at a bonfire. The red glow is from a very large bonfire behind me and i borrowed one of the drinkers torches to light up the smoke from the side. He was a bit grumpy with me for running his torch flat but when he saw the photo he figured it must have been worth it.
Equipment
Nikon D7200 on tripod with a wode angle lens. I think its was my 10-17mm, but cant quite remember.
Inspiration
The conditions were right. There were a bunch of people camping with us, and i wanted to show off a bit. It was fun, we had quite a few people getting into it while i was shooting.
Editing
Yes, there was a trailer left to the side which i couldnt quitr mamage to avoid being in the photo, it couldnt be moved at the time either. So i had to remove it. There is also the basic adjustments done.
In my camera bag
Nikon D7200 70-300mm 10-17mm 50mm 35mm Nikon Flash
Feedback
Get creative, there are so many things you can do with light painting anf long exposure. Just mess around and have some fun.
