Stunning!

Behind The Lens

Location
Motutere Jetty Lake Taupo, New Zealand
Time
Getting on dusk during our N.Z summer which would have been around 8.30pm.
Lighting
The natural light was perfect for what I was trying to achieve, the sun was starting to go down and it helped create the sombre mood I was going for.
Equipment
I used my trusted Sony A7rII with the 16-35mm F4 CZ lens combination and it was mounted to a Sirui carbon tripod.
Inspiration
I was staying in a caravan that a good friend let me use and this was the camp ground view pretty much right out the front window I was watching the light fade while having a cold beer and eating hot salami and cheese and decided that this could be a great image if I shot with my ND filters and a slow shutter speed.
Editing
Yes a little bit of cropping and adding a small amount of vignetting and a touch of light balance control to highlight the jetty.
In my camera bag
I love the Sony mirrorless systems and I currently shoot with a Sony A7rii which is mainly for all my landscape work, my go to lens is the Sony 16-35mm f4 fe cz, I also have a Sony cz 55mm f1.8, Sony G Macro 90mm f2.8, Sony G 70-200mm f4, I also use a Panasonic G9 micro 4/3 system for when I need more reach with wildlife and sports this is usually paired with a Lumix Leica 100-400mm Lens f4-6.3 and I have a good carbon Sirui tripod also a Benroe back up tripod used in conjunction with a combination of a Lee and Hitech Formatt filter system, all my kit is purchased second hand and has taken years of buying and selling to build up.
Feedback
Set up about a half hour before the ideal light which is usually either dawn or dusk, use a good quality tripod and make sure it is sturdy add some weight if needed I sometimes hang my back pack under it this helps in windy conditions or with vibration if others are walking near your set up, I used a slow shutter speed I think this was around 20 seconds and of course I needed a ND filter to do this so as to smooth out the water and capture the moving clouds a remote control is handy to eliminate shutter release vibration, the mirrorless systems let you see in advance how your settings will affect the photo which is brilliant for these shots as it reduces a lot of need for trial and error but just experiment with various shutter speeds.
