Behind The Lens

Location
I captured teh photo at Lake Hennepin, Minnesota, USA.
Time
Night time is my day time. I can wander all the nights just to hunt my subject. I started preparing from 9PM then settled at about 11:30PM and I captured the photo at around 12:00 AM.
Lighting
It was a cool night and a little of wind. I pre planned my shoot. I have this Tiki light lighted and of course I lighted a torch inside my tent. I had another light near the camera pointing the scene and set the exposure of my camera and start doing my thing.
Equipment
I used Canon EOS 5DS, Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3, Manfrotto 190XPROB Pro Tripod.
Inspiration
Night skies is my greatest inspiration and I can still remember the words my father told me..."Wherever you go, just look at the stars and they will lead you back home!", he said it to me at the age of 10 when I asked him that I will go, and be a working student so I can finish my studies. We were so poor then, my parents were farmers and we were 11 siblings. I cannot do the hardwork that farmers do so at the early stage of my life I decided to finish my schooling because I taught that's my only way to get out from the very poor situation. I went away, became a working student and every time I missed my parents and siblings I just looked up and talk to the stars to relay my message to my parents and sibling that I missed them a lot but I need to work and study hard so I can become someone. I didn't have camera to document my story during the time but it was inculcated to my mind. It was a very terrific experience and mmorable one. So when I graduated my degree, I went to buy my camera and started photographing night skies...stars, milky way, star trails, northern, moon, and Aurora Borealis. By merely looking up at them I can reminisce the hardship I'd been to but those hardship brought me to the success of life I am enjoying now. For me, the stars are guiding me ever since and now. So whenever my husband and I go for camping or just merely photographing them, I am so alive.
Editing
Yes, I did especially for the milky way.
In my camera bag
My Canon EOS 5DS, my trigger release, tripod and also a timer.
Feedback
Gear up for the right season, study your subject, and look for better location.
