Behind The Lens

Location
This is a typical scene in the deep rural areas of Mozambique - this was taken outside of the small rural village of Nhambalualo, to the North West of the city of Tete.
Time
This was taken shortly before sunset with the low-angled sun rays lighting up the dust-filled air.
Lighting
Golden hour shortly before sunset - soft warm rays of low angle light
Equipment
I used my Nikon D200 with the Nikkor 70-300 VR, handheld.
Inspiration
I spent almost four years working in the City of Tete. Over weekends I used to go out with one or two photographer friends to explore the rural towns in the area. This was taken one Sunday afternoon during such a trip.
Editing
Only very basic editing like levels, saturation, contrast and white balance were adjusted in Lightroom CC
In my camera bag
I currently have a Nikon D200 and a Nikon D800E , 2 speedlights, 2 x 105mm Micro Nikkors, Nikkor 85mm f1.8, Nikkor 24-70 f2.8, Nikkor 14-24 f2.8, Nikkor 70-200 f2,8 and the Nikkor 200-500 f5.6, Manfrotto tripod with ballhead and Gimble Head, Monopod
Feedback
Study and understand the nature of light and shadow & its interplay. Work on your compositions - that's what define your personal style. Enjoy photography, be bold and willing to experiment, play and have fun. Learn from others and adapt to your own eye and style.
