Beautiful B&W long exposure image. Congratulations on your well deserved awards!

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Swanage Bay on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. I was stood on the new pier structure to allow myself this image of the remains of the old pier...
Time
This was an early morning shoot when the conditions were fairly benign...
Lighting
As you can probably tell, it was an overcast, relatively dull day light-wise but the fact it is a long exposure, negates the downside of the lack of lighting on the day...
Equipment
This was taken on my trusty Nikon d7200 with my Samyang 16mm f2.0. Long exposures need a really steady camera so this was mounted on my Benbo 1 tripod which is as steady as they come...
Inspiration
I'd always thought that objects protruding from water were prime targets for long exposure images and this is such a photogenic structure...
Editing
During my editing I realised this would look fantastic in monochrome considering the lack of any decent light or colours to speak of. A couple of subtle gradient tool masks for darkening the edges of the sky & the water was pretty much it...
In my camera bag
I normally carry 2 camera bodies, Nikon Z6 & d7200. The d7200 is now used primarily to shoot timelapse videos on most shoots I go on, tge Z6 is my main stills body. I'll take a selection of lenses, Samyang 16mm f2.0, Sigma 20mm f1.8, Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro & Sigma 150-600mm for wildlife shots. Syrp Genie mini, Benbo tripods & a torch...
Feedback
Digital photography allows us to go out, shoot an image, instantly review it and to change settings if we're not happy. Then re-shoit & review it again...so there is potential to improve our photography very quickly indeed. My advice is to get out and practice as much as possible.
