Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Norway, the village is called Reine.
Time
The photo was taken at sunset, I reached the location a couple of hours before sunset to choose a good spot.
Lighting
I wanted to have a mixed natural/artificial light so I had to wait until the two were well balanced to avoid overexposing the lights of the village or the sky. The clouds helped having a uniform light.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D800 with a Sigma 35 1.4 lens. The tripod is a Manfrotto 190 series. I also used a remote shutter release to avoid moving the camera
Inspiration
Lofoten Islands are one of the most beauiful place I've ever seen, I did some research and I decided to go! There are a lot of spots where good photos can be taken, every small village or lake or fjord is worth visiting.
Editing
Usually a spend quite some time post-processing my shots but in this particular case there was not so much to do: Just some Raw file processing: White balance and contrast. Some curves applied to boost a bit the highligts and the snow. ...That's all
In my camera bag
I usually carry my D800 camera body with a 24-105mm f4, 70-200mm f4, a 14mm f2.8 and the 35mm I used for this shot. I also have a cuple of ND filters, a polarizer and then the usual stuff: extra memory cards, batteries. For this shot I also had a LOT of warm clothes, the temperature was around -6 celsius defrees.
Feedback
Be on the location some time before sunset or sunrise, find a nice spot, pay attention to the composition, wait for the light to look beautiful. But most of all be prepared to stand the cold, the snow and the strong wind!
