Behind The Lens

This picture was taken somewhere between Brugge and Damme. When we were in Brussels, we went to spend a day to Brugge and there we picked some bikes and went to Damme. On the road back, we found this windmill and I thought that it deserved a picture. The thing is that, since the windmill was a bit higher than the road, I had to be balancing in the highest part of a bench to be at the same level. Risky bussines!
It was taken in the afternoon, close to the blue hour.
Since it was almost the blue hour the shadows weren't really strong, so the light was perfect for a portrait. (Thats myself in the picture)
This was shot on a Canon 6D MkII with a 24/70mm Tamron lens.
Well, the combination of the perfect light for a portrait, with something captivating about the windmill and the feeling of freedom that we had on that day, with the bikes and so on it made me think of freezing this moment, this movement, that made me feel so alive with a smile on my face.
I usually don't do much of postprocessing, just correcting a little bit the light and the contrast.
In my camera bag
I always have with me my Canon 6D MkII with my 24-70mm Tamron lens. I also have a 50mm Canon lens and I usually take with me my Instax so I can make my own postcards of the places I visit.
The advice that I would give to achieve something similar is that you feel the picture you want to take. That you put your heart in it and find the way to express the feelings that you are having in that moment. Even if they are bad ones, this process is kinda therapeutic!
