Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken right outside our beach hut on Holiday Island Maldives.we woke up to this view every day for 3 weeks.
Time
This was taken about 11am. I was after a strong sun soihad good contrast in the colour in the blues and sand. I also used a polorising filter to help make the colours pop.
Lighting
I like phoning in the golden hours, if I did I would not of had such good contrasting colours.
Equipment
Nikon d750, tripod (Carbon) , wide angle lens. And a nice cool beer in one hand. Gran stopper to help blur the clouds.
Inspiration
I was after a post card looking photo. Or the photos you see in the travel magazine. I also wanted a photo to remind me of the view I had every day.
Editing
I did a little post processing, sorted the white balance, pushed the contrast a bit and a curves layer in photo shop. I also lured the clouds a bit more with a grad filter in light room.
In my camera bag
Two cameras D750 and D710. Wide angle lend Tamron 10-24mm. Nikon 24-70mm 2.8f lens (I use this one most now as it is the best glass I have) Nikon 50mm prime lens 1.4f stop. Tameron 90mm macro lens. Nikon 70-200mm (cheap) lens. Spare batteries 4 of them. I have a filter set. Big stopper small stopper and a few grad filters.cable release. 650 flash light. Cleaning stuff for camera and lenses.
Feedback
Spend as much time as you can walking around to find the best place to take the shot. Take your time.
