Journey worth taking❤️

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Preikestolen also known as "Pulpit Rock", just outside of Stavangen, Norway. A beautiful and easy hike with a stunning view of Lysefjorden on top.
Time
Time is all about my photographs, and I am all about the first light of day, especially on top of a mountain. This morning was one of my favourite sunrise hike. I remember a day before meeting a stranger in a cafe, then the next day we were both hiking all the way up to Preikestolen in a cold autumn night, just that to see the sunrise. It was unsure if we would be able to see it, as the weather forecast pointed that it would be cloudy and stormy, but from my previous experiences I knew that, on the top of a mountain, the mountains run its own rules. Definitely it was worth it. We arrived on the top about an hour before the sunrise, so I had enough time to have an overview of the location in order to capture this beautiful moment. I had no tripod so I tried to balance the camera with my elbows on my chest, holding the camera firmly as best I could due to the slow shutter speed.
Lighting
Understanding light is one of the most important skills in photography. I love capturing mood photographs, which gives a dream feeling that somehow brings my audience to the location. To capture the atmosphere of a specific moment, I try to emphasize the lighting as much as possible. Typically, a warm or cozy setting will involve soft lighting. For example, with a cold morning, the light comes with a soft orange and pink light. A technique I like to use is to put a person in the foreground of the shot. This technique gives a strong sense of depth to the image, which can help make it a more memorable photograph.
Equipment
This photograph was shot on a Canon 7D, with an 18-55mm f/2.8 lens. No other gear was involved.
Inspiration
Sunrises and sunsets are magical, because they are mysterious and unpredictable, especially if you are shooting in a location where the weather changes constantly. As winter was coming, the tourist office was closed, and for security reasons they advised the visitors to not climb or hike any mountains in the surroundings of Stavangen, unless if you were experienced. I took it as a challenge.
Editing
Yes, I often use post-processing on my photographs. I always shoot in RAW with customised picture style, it gives you a world of possibilities when it comes to editing. I don"t really follow photography rules, I like to play with low shutter speed with a high ISO and a wide f/stop in order to give it a natural grain and softness without really blurring the whole back ground. I used a bit of noise correction as well played a bit with the white balance.
In my camera bag
I am a simple guy. :) I am always carrying my Canon 7D with 18-55mm f/2.8 lens around.
Feedback
People often think that we should capture only special occasions. As I mentioned before, I am always carrying my camera around even if I don't find a special occasion for a shot. Please use manual mode, it might seem to be hard at first, but after your learn it, you will find your creative inner. I recommend you to explore your camera, by trying different combinations of settings, for example: an over exposed photo might not look nice in your camera, but after a post-processing, you may have gotten a stunning photograph, and perhaps even an unexpected occasion is created. To capture moments like that photo, I really recommend getting up before sunrise. Patience is the secret of photography, you have to be flexible and opened. Sometimes we tend to look only for a specific photo, which might get you distracted of seeing the countless possibilities around you.
