Behind The Lens

Location
The photo has been taken in the Pottery Square of the city of Bhaktapur (Nepal).
Time
The photo was taken on December 04th, 2018 at 7:25am.
Lighting
As far as possible, I'm in use to take advantage of natural light. So, for picture like this, it is very important to check the weather forecast mostly if your journey plan doesn't allow to spend more than a couple of days on the site.
Equipment
This image was shot on a Nikon D600 with a Nikkor 24-85mm lens, without neither tripod nor flash.
Inspiration
I remember how difficult was to find a good position and point of view to be able to take the image. The hardest part was to find the right position inside the little workshop and without disturbing the work of the potter. My aim was to realize a good composition from an interesting point of view, with a long esposition to be able to capture the circular movement and with a short depth of field to try to "tell the story".
Editing
Yes, I do. I regulated shadows and lights using LR in order to bring out the details of the artefact and make the picture a bit more dramatic. Moreover, I lightly decreased the saturation of the colors of the scene.
In my camera bag
As a frequent traveller and backpacker adicted, my choise in term of gear is usually a good tradeoff between quality and size/weight. I use two bodies NIKON D810 and NIKON D610 and the following lens and filters: NIKKOR AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, NIKKOR AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G IF ED VR, NIKKOR AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED N VR, NIKKOR ?AF-S 50mm f/1.8G. Few accessories complete my equipment: KENKO Digital Filter Circular PL, MANFROTTO Tripod MK293A4-A3RC1, KAAVIE Tracolla fast release, METZ Flash Mecablitz 52 AF-1.
Feedback
The most difficult part is to discover meaningful and interesting street scenes, catching them at the right time and in the right way trying to "tell the story". As a traveler before than a photographer, I'm really interested in culture and habits so I like to spend time walking along the streets and talking with people. Concerning the composition, I suggest to move a lot in order to discover the best place to shot and to take the photo from a different point of view with respect to the usual natural one.
