Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in Sintra-Portugal. As an amateur photographer I am, I do not always have much time available for this hooby, but whenever I can I go back to this same place in the hope of getting better photos.

Time

Sintra is a charming village situated in the middle of a green landscape benefiting from a very special microclimate, it is not uncommon to find the Sintra mountain covered with fog, which gives this region a certain mystical aura, however it is in the morning that the best conditions for this type of photo.

Lighting

The type of photo that I always have in mind when I go to this place is a mystical atmosphere. Always photograph against light and with natural light in order to try to create beautiful silhouettes with the shape of the trees.

Equipment

I used my small Nikkor 50 mm 1.8 in a Nikon D90 on the tripod and used the timer to try to avoid camera shake.

Inspiration

The place itself is inspiring and I really like this kind of photos.

Editing

I used the Lightroom only for small adjustments like contrast, shadows, etc.

In my camera bag

My kind of photograph is wildlife, particularly birds so my Nikkor 300mm f4 is my favorite lens with teleconverter 1.4 mounted on the Nikon D7100 and they always walk with me. I usually take tb my Nikkor 50mm 1.8 and sometimes the Nikkor 70-210 f4, and my Induro tripod.

Feedback

Get to the place early and wait for the best conditions and light.
