Behind The Lens

Location

The Escalators of the Library in Rotterdam.The picture is also rotated 90° clockwise.

Time

During the nighttime, it made the world outside darker, so there is more emphasis on the green colored lights.

Lighting

It is done with the existing artificial light in the building.

Equipment

Its made with a Sony A99 fullframe camera and a Sigma 12-24mm lens on 12mm. The camera was resting in between two escalators and the exposure was done with the exsisting light which resulted in a exposure time of 2 seconds.

Inspiration

This photo is inspired by the works of M.C. Escher.

Editing

Not much, i liked the green colorcast of the lights so i yust did some little tweaks. The most "work" was rotating the image 90° clockwise.

In my camera bag

Mostly a Sony A99M2 full frame camera with a battery grip. lenses like Sigma 12-24mm, Sony Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8, Sony G 70-200mm f/2.8, Sony Zeiss 85mm f/1.4, Minolta 20mm f/2.8, and Minolta 100m f/2.8 macro. Furthermore a Tripod and LEE SW150 filters. I also use a Fuji X-pro2 camera with lensens from Fuji and 7 Artisans. I also like to take photos with vintage Lenses. I have more than 30 from the year 1952 to 1990.

Feedback

Look for opportunities and use what is available, in this case i put the camera on a a partition between two escalators because i did not had a tripod. I alsmost desisted to take the photo because of this. Afterwards It was a good alternative for the shot which had a 2 seconds exposure. I did not entend to rotate the picture beforehand, i decided that in post-production, so it also important to rethink your images after you press the button.
