Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Lofoten/Norway and this house stands near Reine, a little village on the Lofoten island Moskenes.
Time
At this time I was on tour with some crazy landscape photographers like me. We started our tour on this day in midday and it ended the next morning at 08.00 o clock in our hotel. To this picture, it was taken at 23:00 in the night.
Lighting
For me a landscape photographer, the nature brings the light (or sometimes not ;) ) So my job is it to get this colours and special atmosphere on the sensor. Today the sensors of our cameras are monsters no matter witch manufacturer you use. Bunt don't belief, that your main job is post processing. Your camera is a tool that you should have to master. Learn to read the histogram while you are photographing is more important then to be a photoshop crack. ;)
Equipment
This picture was taken with a Sony A7 R3 and the Sony 24-70 GM. Of course a tripod, a remote control an a grey filter.
Inspiration
I saw this house with its yellow/orange light and the blue colours around it, i was flashed. It was a mystic mood and then I had the great luck, that the fog was coming. This is the cherry on top.
Editing
Of course I did some post-processing. The original is a raw-file and post-processing is a duty. So the first step was in Lightroom, some changes to exposure like contrast, lights, darks, etc. After that I went to Photoshop cc and used some luminosity masks for finishing.
In my camera bag
Normally my bag is a backpack. In it there are mostly two cams, lenses from 12 to 135 mm, filter holder, grey filter, nd filter, remote control, towels for cleaning the filter and of course a tripod.
Feedback
For me landscape photography is absolute relaxation. But before, there is a lot of planning and scouting. For that I I use google earth, I speak with other photographers and take information in photo-blogs. I use some apps on my phone to inform me when will the sun get down, best time for the blue hour and a good weather app to inform about rain, clouds, wind, etc.. If I found a new location to photograph, my first step isn't taking my camera. First I enjoy the landscape around me and get a feeling for its specialities. I think the most important thing for photographing landscape is, take enough time with you.
