Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in one of the most famous canals in Amsterdam, the Keizersgracht.
Time
The image was taken during sunset. During this time there is a lot of traffic in the canals due to the touristic cruises. I was waiting for the proper boat to pass by, I made several attempts to get that straight line of light trails, and eventually I got it.
Lighting
This is a very special part of the year, around winter, when the sun is setting right behind this canal, making it ideal for a beautiful composition with soft ,golden hour light.
Equipment
Equipment used was the Nikon D750 + Tamron 15-30 2.8, alongside with the use of a 0.6 grad and a 6 stop ND filter.
Inspiration
I have seen many images in the canals of Amsterdam, and I love the boats that pass by, so I wanted to make a long exposure shot containing all these ingredients: a boat, a canal and a sunset!
Editing
Post processing was done in Lightroom and a small part in Photoshop, especially the Orton effect to get that dreamy look.
In my camera bag
In my bag I always carry a Nikon D750, a Tamron 15-30 2.8, a Tamron 90mm Macro 2.8 and my filters: a 6 and a 10 stop ND filter, and a 0.6 and 0.9 grad filters. Also I have my tripod and a remote shutter control.
Feedback
Be patient. Wait for the proper moment and study your location, know where the sun will set and always have your tripod with you, especially during the golden hour when the light is soft.
