Behind The Lens

Location
Outside St Paul’s Cathedral in London.
Time
This was taken after a night shift at about 4am.
Lighting
With it being night time in a big city I had to rely on artificial lighting from street lights and the moving bus.
Equipment
I had the Nikon 14-24mm and the D750 mounted on a manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
A work colleague has recently got into photography and we popped out after work so I could show him the principles of long exposures. I usually shoot landscape so I didn’t really think I was going to come away with a shot I like but I saw this composition and new it was going to be a keeper.
Editing
Edited in Lightroom with very basic adjustments then cropped.
In my camera bag
I always have in my bag, Nikon D750 14-24mm f/2.8 lens 50mm f/1.4 lens 28-300mm f/3.5 lens Manfrotto tripod. Shutter release cable.
Feedback
Be patient, especially when your waiting for light trails. Don’t accept the first one you get, this was probably the 15th bus that came past before I got it right.
