Behind The Lens

The shot was taken in Poland, in my hometown called Kielce, during XMAS time in the hall of the biggest shopping center in the city
At the end of the day in the very crowded mall, while there was almost nobody, just to take a shot in the nice, calm atmosphere
Nothing particular at all. The usual set-up of the parameters used in case of low light, and inhouse sessions, high ISO, low aperture just to carefully play with timing to get well-sharped shots.
Nothing special inside. I am not professional. So, I use one set: NIKON D810 + Sigma 24-70 Art version. That's enough.
Well, as usual, simply the beauty of the X-MAS time. Just decided to enjoy it a bit more than usual by making photos of one of the most popular malls in the city I was planning to do years ago.
Anything that I did here was empowering the colors as best as possible to expose the X-Mas mood
In my camera bag
Well, I use my second fellow during my travels means Thule backpack. Nothing special inside. I am not professional. So, I use one set: NIKON D810 + Sigma 24-70 Art version. That's enough. Of course not forgetting about the snacks.
Wherever you go take the camera with you. They are saying that we have golden hours to make the pictures. Maybe, but I do not stick to this so often. Simply, try to make as many shots as possible at every time of the day. You do not need a sunny day. Cloudly one is even more interesting. Night as well. You do not need any famous places to make an interesting shot, the most interesting ones are close by. Believe me. Think about the shot before. Living in the same place for some time it is very easy to know when or what happens with the scene you see every day, every night. What crop, or position you are going to use. You can easily check it each day and use it for the best shot. That will make your life easier. Do not give up, never. If not this time maybe next. Do not lose the opportunity. In this kind of condition, you will have another chance every day, every night. And remember that's not equipment is making you a photographer. That's you, only you. Limited equipment is making you more creative. So, go, take the shots and share them with others.
