Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken in the old ghost town Bodie California, high in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains
Time
Mid-morning on an overcast cold & windy day in October.
Lighting
Lighting was only what nature gave me on an slightly overcast cloudy day with the sun peaking out once in awhile.
Equipment
This was taken with a Sony a99ii handheld with a Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 lens
Inspiration
The weathering of the wood looked unreal, almost as if it was a painting. I was in awe of just about everything I seen in Bodie.
Editing
Yes, I shoot everything in raw so post process is necessity in my opinion. Mainly dodge, burn & a vignette, maybe a little white balance & color adjustments.
In my camera bag
I've recently switched to Sony's e-mount system. I generally carry 2 a7riii cameras, Sony GM lenses including 85 1.4, 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8, 100-400... Sigma art 135 1.8 & art 24 1.4... & a Zeiss 50 1.4... The holdfast strap is a must & the big pelican case to hold everything.
Feedback
First learn your camera, make it second nature to operate it. If you find an interesting subject take some time & experiment with different compositions & settings, move around & hit it at a bunch of different angles.
