Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken in the North East of England from Jarrow looking across the river Tyne to Wallsend at Neptune dry dock. Where Royal BAM is building 60m-high gravity base foundations for the Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Wind Farm.
Time
This was taken around 5pm after i had left work. I had checked for tide height and sunset times for a great match.
Lighting
After many test shots the best exposure time for me was set at 30 seconds ISO64 @ F8
Equipment
I used my Nikon D810 with F2.8 24-70 Nikon Lens set up on a Manfrotto 290 dual tripod. The shot was a 30sec exposure 32mm focal length at F8 in Raw and a cloudy WB. I had plenty of warm clothing for this location as the wind over the river cuts like a knife.
Inspiration
I had seen these structures from a distance as they are a permanent addition to the north east skyline now and i'm always on the lookout for interesting subjects this fit the bill for me.
Editing
I always use lightroom for my edits highlights/shadows/colour balance and finish off in photoshop for any sensor dust.
In my camera bag
I always have my Nikon gear to hand with the D810 attached to 24/70 F2.8 ready for anything love this lens at its F8 sweet spot for landscapes and wide open at F2.8 always set in manuel. In the bag is a 70/200 F2.8 along with the spare cards battery and all the usual items so i travel quite light unless I'm going to shoot sports where my go to is the Nikon D4 with 300 F2.8 to get you right in amongst the action.
Feedback
I'm not one to give advice really apart from planing was the key to get everything I wanted from this shot. I had checked the location before hand and used google earth to see how i could get close enough to the river bank then checked out tide times and i had a good match with the sunset the clouds moving towards me well that was in the hands of mother nature and i was really lucky. The long exposure flattened the river for the reflections of the works and being patient for the sky and clouds to play ball after many shots at different exposure times this is the one that stood out for me.
