Superb capture...

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured at an indoor skate park which unfortunately is now closed. A great place to practice when winter hits and the streets are ice and snow.
Time
This was taken in the late afternoon. The light filtered through a window which was located at the top of one of the ramps.
Lighting
The light was filtering in through a window which was covered in chain link to protect it from flying skate boards. The rest of the indoor park was dimly lit with fluorescent fixtures, this natural light stood out like a beacon to me as a photographer.
Equipment
This image was captured with a Nikon D810 and the 70-200 f2.8.
Inspiration
This beautiful girl was working very hard trying to complete some of the skating tricks/moves. It takes a lot of determination and a high pain tolerance to say the least. Not giving up at the first sign of failure is imperative on the road to any goal you set for yourself. Taking a break and looking out the window gathering her thoughts, it seemed to be the perfect time to capture. I remember when I first started shooting and how daunting it all seemed. I would ask for advice and shortcuts and everyone told me there is no secret sauce or shortcuts, only time will create the results I wanted. It seemed very cliche but how true it is. It applies to anything worth while. Hard work will beat talent every time, do not give up and put those hours in. I am not even close to where I want to be, I am always pushing to get better.
Editing
I did the usual for my workflow. Made sure all of lens and camera corrections were made along with white balance, exposure etc were done. I then adjusted colors, temp, clarity and contrast. And finally added a vignette.
In my camera bag
I normally carry my camera, a 50mm and my 70-200mm. If I need a wide angle shot I will bring the Tamron 15-30. I also carry cleaning solution and cloths and extra memory cards. This changes for each shoot that I am on, sometimes I require more, such as my laptop along with lighting.
Feedback
I think the best advice is to expect the unexpected. Try to keep an eye around you and look for the light. The best shots tend to quickly present themselves and if you are busy fussing with your gear you will miss it. Get to know your camera and lenses, shoot a lot, turn practice into muscle memory so you no longer need to worry about settings and can focus purely on composition and the art of the shot.
