Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at a lake shore (Penza region, Russia)
Time
It was a great summer day. I came to shoot Perseids shower earlier than I expected, so I decided to find a perfect place for taking photos.
Lighting
I usually take sunsets and sunrises shots standing in front of the sun. But this time the sun was behind me, because my goal was a nightscape in another direction.
Equipment
Nikon D7100, Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G, Manfrotto tripod
Inspiration
Suddenly I saw an incredible light reflecting in the water. There are no mountains in our region that's why all landscapes look minimalistic. I was surprised when I found that driftwood. It completed foreground creating a perfect composition.
Editing
I simulated a long exposure in photoshop image stacking.
In my camera bag
Nikon D7100, Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G, Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D, Manfrotto tripod, Nikon Speedlight SB-910, LED-flash, thermos with hot tea :)
Feedback
Try to improve your skill by repeating different techniques of photoshooting, trying new approaches and whatching great pictures more. Also take photos as often as you can, explore your surrounding and follow the light :)
