Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Magoito, Portugal.
Time
It was about 16.30 hours
Lighting
The light was strange, cloudy but the sun lit the beach and I knew I had to run to take a photo.
Equipment
I didn't use any equipment other then my wonderful little Lumix DMC-TZ100.
Inspiration
We were driving along the coast looking for a way to reach the beach. When we got the feeling that we were lost I saw this strange light from the distance. I stopped the car and ran to the side of the cliff hoping for that one shot... I clicked and the clouds covered the sun turning the beach and the cliffs into a dark and contrastless blurr..
Editing
I did a little post-processing in Lightroom to create a bit more liveliness in the image.
In my camera bag
I don't have any equipment in my bag (yet) I am a beginning photographer and I am learning to use a camera, to look for the good light, composition and point of view. One day when I know how to use and set the camera well enough, I will start to think about a bag filled with technical things instead of the need to understand...
Feedback
Water allways creates nice reflections and lively motion and I thought the contrast of the mighty rocks by the sea created a wonderful depth to the image. I placed the horizon about two thirth from the bottom to create a nice wide composition with the heavy contrasting clouds. Diagonals play a big role in this composition, I was very happy with the sun breaking through the cloudy sky, creating the strange light. If you look at a subject to photograph, you have to try to realise what you want to achieve, Try to find the good light, the right point of view and the best composition... And most of all, take more shots with slightly different settings so you can choose the best one, once you got home and opened your laptop, the magic of today's world begins... I allways crop it later into the size and composition I like best. Crop the photo in different ways, so you can choose the best one the next day when you can have a fresh look at them!day when you can have a fresh look at them!
