Very nice.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is taken on a autumn night in Wanaka, New Zealand.
Time
I took this photo just after the blue hour of the night.
Lighting
The tree was lit from the Wanaka city lights as well as the stars in the night sky.
Equipment
I used my canon 6d ii with a canon 70-200m f4 lens.
Inspiration
This is quite a popular tourist attraction in Wanaka which I visited during the day and sunset, there was so many people around and i felt everyone was getting the same shot. So i returned later that night to get a night shot of the tree, it was much quieter, I only saw one other photographer who was out doing the same thing. I was really happy with the colors in the image as it looks unique and elegant.
Editing
I don't like to do a lot in post because I believe it takes away from the natural beauty of the image. For example for this image I adjusted the exposure, crop and horizon line. I then made sure the warm and cool tones looked there best together and I was happy with the final outcome.
In my camera bag
I'm a student so I'm limited in what gear I actually own. I have my 6dii, 50mm 1.8, cheap tripod as well as my Nisi 10 stop filter and V6 filter holder which I use with my flatmates lens or one which I borrow from the school. By the end of the year I'm hoping to save for a 24-70mm 2.8. I also have muesli bars with me.
Feedback
Night photos to me are all about patience and being at the right place at the right time, I still have heaps to learn!
