Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
Time
I went to Lake Louise a few hours before sunset to hike around and to see what would come of the sky and the colors. It was a clear day to start, but like most spots with mountains and valleys, the weather changes often and quickly. Sunset came and so did the clouds. I wasn't able to get the colorful sunset I was hoping for, but once the night set in, the lake became a mirror. The boat house and all around it became a double image in Lake Louise around 11 at night.
Lighting
This was taken at night, so the natural lighting was next to zero. What I did have to deal with was the electric lighting coming off the boat house. It took a bit of manipulation with white balancing out the yellow/orange coming off of the deck light.
Equipment
Nikon D750, Nikon f/3.5-4.5 28-108mm lens, Vanguard Alta Pro tripod, remote shutter release.
Inspiration
I wanted to capture a nice shot of the Lake Louise boat house in some form without crowds of people around it. The only time that came about was well after sunset. It also helped that the reflections were near perfect.
Editing
I used Lightroom for post processing the RAW photo file. Nothing all that fancy. Got the white balance to where I wanted it, brought up the clarity and reduced the noise.
In my camera bag
I always have my Nikon D750, my kit lens - Nikon 28-108mm, my zoom - Nikon 28-300mm and my Tamron wide angle - 18-28mm. A charger, 2 to 4 batteries, at least 4 SD cards, remote shutter release, lens wipes, flashlights, and various filters - UV, polarizer, ND 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.
Feedback
If you want to shoot at night, you need a tripod! And a remote shutter release or APP or even shoot on a 2 second timer delay so pushing the shutter doesn't cause any shake in your shot. Depending on the time of year and where you are, be ready to be out late. Bring flashlights, clothing layers, bug spray! Don't be afraid to take some test shots to dial in your settings. I always start with iso 3200, opened up f-stop, then go anywhere from 5 to 30 second shutter depending on your light meter, but I set for going into the + of the meter.
