Behind The Lens

Location

This was shot in a Paris metro on a 4-day phototrip . Wanted to shoot some unusual images there !

Time

I travell around the city using my favorit transport in busy cities because sometimes they are very attractive for photography . In this shot ,i was waiting for a load of passengers getting out around evening rush hour.

Lighting

The white walls ,and available light created a nice mood and play withe shadows !

Equipment

This was shot with a Nikon D750 and the 28-300 travellens from Nikon as well ! Using a Manfrotto tripod to keep it all still during the somewhat longer exposure !

Inspiration

I saw an image ones of a model standing frozen in front of people crossing a bussy street with a simular result ! So with this idea i descent into the subway looking for a composition that was able to shoot something what i had in mind ! A friend took the place of the model ;-)

Editing

Some basic Lightroom adjustments and a Black & White conversion is all that it needed in my opinion !

In my camera bag

Depending on what i have in mind shooting that day i pack my bag with only the necessary stuff ! What i do always check is, enough loaded batteries and empty SD cards , remote controller and a cleaning set for camera and lenses ! For landscape i use a 12mm f2,8 and a 70-200mm f2,8 For portret i use prime 50mm f1,8, macro 105mm f2,8 and 24-70mm f2,8 and occasionally the 70-200mm f2,8 For streetphotography i recently use olympus OM-D 10 mach III with 14-150mm lens ,smaller than a dslr and therefor more incognito work !

Feedback

Be patient to take the shot at the exact moment that you are looking for,repeat several times with slight different settings and look for the best result !!! 1/2 a second was the perfect shutterspeed for this shot at f16 ! Good luck and thanks for your interest and time
