Behind The Lens

Location
I was sitting in my front yard with my niece watching the sunset.
Time
The best time of day. Sunset.
Lighting
I wanted the viewer to see the warmth of the moment that I was experiencing. I tried to capture all the nice bright warm colors around us.
Equipment
Shot on a Nikon D3500 that was in manual mode.
Inspiration
As a kid I always lived out in the country and love the views. I am currently at college in a big city and living in dorms so these moments are few and far apart for me these days and I wanted to capture it for those days when I am missing home.
Editing
Initially my shoes were a bit darker than I would have liked, they were a bit on the dirty side. To fix that I increased the contrast and upped the whites in the photo. Maybe from now on I'll keep my shoes cleaner and it won't be a problem.
In my camera bag
My memaw always told me that simplicity is elegance, so I normally just carry my Nikon D3500 with the 18-55mm lens and some lens wipes, and of course a hair tie cause you can never have enough of those around.
Feedback
These kind of moments aren't something you can look for. This is the kind of moment that you stumble into so you have to be aware of what you have before it passes you.
