Behind The Lens

This photo has been taken in Saint Paul, on a small French island located next to Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean. I am an amateur photographer, and this photo helped me to put my knowledge into practice.
This photo has been taken on January 1 in a space of 30 minutes. I started to do framing tests at 6:30 p.m. and at 7:15 p.m. I started shooting until 7:45 p.m. to get the images needed to create the final photograph.
The lighting of this photo is key, since when taking the photos in the blue hour, I have achieved a very intense color contrast.
This photograph has been taken with a very simple equipment. The camera is a Nikon D5300, with a Tokina lens 11-16 at 14mm, f / 2.8 and speed of 30 seconds. To this lens I have added a 10-step filter of the Hoya brand. The tripod is the other fundamental part to be able to take this photo. In my case, I use a Rollei brand tripod, an Allrounder carbon model that seems spectacular to me.
I had seen this place in a photo that I liked and that I thought I had many more possibilities. At the same time, I knew that on January 1 fireworks were launched and everything came true in my head. The rest was easy. Arrive and put into practice everything I had in mind.
This image is composed of 8 different photos. One for the sky, a second for the general lighting of the streets and fireworks. Finally, 6 photos to get the traces of cars as I liked them the most. Then, the magic happens in the computer, the images are combined, they are given the personal edition of each one. In my case, color editing, lighting and a slightly dark environment.
In my camera bag
As I said before, I am an amateur photographer, who has a very basic team but I know very well and I know how far I can go with him. The body is a Nikon D5300, the lenses are 18-55, 55-210, sigma 50 2.8 macro, Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 35mm 1.8, Tokina 11-16 f2.8. For now it is a team that allows me to take all the photographs I need. Especially nocturnal and landscapes that are my great hobby. With the telephoto lens I do some portrait but I have not deepened much in this field.
To get a picture of this style, the main thing is to have a camera that allows long exposure and a tripod as stable as possible. The first thing to do is go to the site and study the framing. The technical part is simple. Open the diaphragm as much as possible so that the ISO is as low as possible and has no noise and increase the speed to approximately 30 seconds. It is interesting to take many photos to see at home which one you like the most. Another tip is to use an ultra wide angle to get as large an image as possible. If you have a neutral density filter, use it. This will allow you to use a slightly more closed diaphragm and thus have more detail in the photo.. Another tip that I like to give is, take many photos, have fun, take the camera with you and take those photos that you like so much, don't let anyone condition you. Accept the criticism, but don't take the photos that others want you to take. And without a doubt, look at many photos and try to take them to learn and eventually create your own. Photography is a very extensive field, in which you are always learning and that with constancy, the result will come. The camera is a tool, but magic is born in your head.
