Behind The Lens

Location
of course the beach, always in my Calabria! here are in Vibo Valentia
Time
were more or less five in the afternoon, it was quite cloudy but bright
Lighting
the lighting is very suitable for b.w. as it gave many shades of gray, of course, only natural light
Equipment
a Nikon, n1 v with the 10mm 2.8
Inspiration
so curious to see him, and from this point of view!
Editing
I first processed the raw file and then converted
In my camera bag
I always carry my D3 and D700 with the 24-70 and the 70-200
Feedback
the point of force that gives charism image is the point of view
