Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Fenghuang town, China. This town is often called the most beautiful town in China and it certainly is very beautiful.
Time
It was early in the morning and this combined with smog created very hazy and beautiful light.
Lighting
Smog actually worked to my advantage here, creating very soft and moody light. Also, as it was very early in the morning the light was very warm.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5D MK IV camera on a tripod.
Inspiration
I took inspiration from the photo I saw in the Lonely Planet guide about China. It showed this bend of the river but from a different perspective.
Editing
The photo was great by itself but of course, I applied some post-processing. I made the white balance even warmer and increased the contrast. I also added vignette effect to draw viewers attention to the boat.
In my camera bag
Normally I have a Canon 5D MK IV camera with me, a backup camera, several lenses (ultra wide-angle, tele zoom, standard zoom), a tripod and a bunch of filters (ND, Grads, polarizers).
Feedback
Get up early to make use of the best light of the day. Apart from great light, tourist places are much quieter around sunrise what's also great for photography.
