Behind The Lens

Location
when ever I know that a storm is coming through the delta around me, I try my best to get out and take pictures of them. If I could make a living at just doing that I would.
Time
It was around 4 pm on May the 31. Some years we have good storms that make for great photo like this one with the wheat ready to harvest.
Lighting
I felt that it had the right darkness with the gold of the wheat to make a good photo
Equipment
I use a nikon d5200 with a fisheye lens, no tripod and the setting are 1/2000sec iso100
Inspiration
It may sound dark but I love the darkness of the storm clouds with the light coming through the tops of the cloud and the gold from the wheat was just a added plus to the photo.
Editing
lets see...... I did run the photo thru lightroom but only to bring out what I remember the moment looking like, as long as I have been taking pictures the camera never really take the photo as I remember seeing it. Just enough highlight and contrast to bring the photo back to what I remember. I shot more to the right with the histogram so I bring it back to center in the post processing. I find that works best for me, not say it works for everyone but it seems to work for me.
In my camera bag
I keep all my gear with me at all time cause you never know, nikon d5200, nikon d7000, nikon nikkor 18-105mm len, nikon nikkor 70-300mm len, tamron 10-24mm wide angle, nikon nikkor prime 50mm, nikon nikkor 18-55mm, 6.5mm fisheye len and a tamron 200-400mm lens. then 2 tripods and a monopod. nikon speedlight sb700 flash and last a vivitar 2x macro focusing teleconverter, gopro hero 3, (2) gopro sessions,
Feedback
Get out there and just start taking pictures, some of my first shot of storms just look bad, I mean really bad but I keep at it not to try to get a great shot but because it is something that I love doing. Getting to see nature at her best and worse only minutes a part sometime. I will say be careful, I have gotten into some pretty bad storms. Know your way out or a way to a safe place, it can go from good to why am I out here really fast. Have fun and play, thats what I try to do. Remember if you don't try it you will never know how much you like it or hate it. So give it a try.
