Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was made in Portland Oregon while on a spontaneous trip up there from California. While walking around the city we came across this phenomenal bridge where the trains and vehicles drove on separate lanes.
Time
This shot was taken in the late hours of the night, it was around midnight and we had already been going since 5a.m. shooting non stop all day.
Lighting
The lighting was all source c.x from the bridge, headlights from passing cars, and the interior lighting from the passing train on the inside track. With long exposures you never know how a shot will turn out until the shutter closes.
Equipment
This was shot with the canon 80D and sigma 24mm lens also accompanied with a 77mm hoya intesifier filter and slik tripod.
Inspiration
I have always been a big fan of light trails and the whole feeling of coming or going you get while looking at a photo. And this bridge screamed "shoot here" and I'm sure glad I stopped
Editing
I processed the single shot in Lightroom. It originally was pretty dark but being able to pull shadows and play with time curves and highlights I was able to make it into the line drawing shot it became.
In my camera bag
In my bag I almost always have a select collection of things. First and foremost is my canon camera body. Lenses I carry the sigma 24mm 1.4 and tamron 70-200 2.8 basic cpl/uv/fdl filters for those you never know moments, along with wireless remote and a lumcube.
Feedback
Patience always have them no matter the cost. You never know what life will serve you so always be patient for the shot. Take your time and dont feel the need to rush it. And never ever be discouraged if the shot is not perfect, you can always make adjustments and go at it again.
