Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken in the cedar forests on the Japanese island of Yakushima, 60km to the south of the southernmost tip of Kyushu island. With a climate ranging from subtropical to cool-temperate, its diverse and highly unique ecosystem and beautiful nature have been highly regarded and Yakushima Island was registered as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 1993. It is also called “the island of ancient forest and water” because of the huge Yaku cedars, which are over 1,000 years old, moss and abundant water system.
Time
Mid day.
Lighting
It was fairly dark in the forest so I balanced the camera on an old stump to avoid camera shake.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mk3. Zoom lens and a tree stump.
Inspiration
I went to the forest take photographs of this amazing place.
Editing
Cropping.
In my camera bag
My sandwiches.
Feedback
Always carry a small tripod.
