Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on Haytor which is in Dartmoor national park, Devon, UK
Time
This was taken at sunrise. Fortunately in winter months this is not too early.
Lighting
The difficulty was in trying to balance the bright sky with the shadows of the foreground. I used a Lee filters 3 stop soft grad to help with this.
Equipment
Nikon D810 with a 16-35 F4 Nikon wide angle lens. Used a light tripod as it’s a little hike up to the top.
Inspiration
I had taken a similar photo here before which I liked but with the recent snow that had fallen I believed a good shot was to be had. I was lucky to get an interesting sky as well as a nice sunrise.
Editing
Very little. Just lowered the highlights and raised the shadows in lightroom. Used colour efex to add some contrast then did some sharpening of the foreground in photoshop.
In my camera bag
I’m lucky enough to now own a Nikon D850. Along with this I have a number of Nikon lenses incl. 16-35 F4, 24-70 F2.8, 50 F1.8, 70-200 F.8, 105 Micro F2.8 and a 200-500 F5.6. I use the Lee filter system and have a Gitzo tripod.
Feedback
Use apps to plan your photo trips. Have a shot in mind before setting out, get that shot and then enjoy looking for other compositions.
