Behind The Lens

Location
This Photo was shot at a building site for a new school. The construction had just gotten to the first floor framing and this was for the concrete supports.
Time
It was the middle of a rather dull day, very filtered light without any direction.
Lighting
The light this day was so dull, the shoot of the building was un-inspiring, yet there are elements wherever you are that can work.
Equipment
For this shot I used a long lens, Canon 70-200 f2.8. A great lens to find shots you might just walk right past.
Inspiration
Wandering around a building site is generally more about the construction and the people working on it. I'm a bit like a moth, attracted to bright colours and light. The fresh stack of support timbers on the back of a truck caught my eye.
Editing
Hardly any processing, it was a flat scene, even across all the scene so in Lightroom all I did was adjust the brightness and contrast.
In my camera bag
I am a heavy camera gear person usually.I shoot a bit of architecture and construction for working I would transfer my gear to a smaller backpack or waist holder and carry a 600 ex flash in case in need a bit extra in the darker places. Having two bodies, one with a 70-200 and the other a wide, a 12-24 Sigma. This is so I do not have to change lenses in a dusty environment. Normally I would use a large Lowepro rolling case with everything I might need...2 bodies - long lens, 2 wides a 12-24 and a 17-40, a 50mm 1.8 (the cheapest but most used lens) a 2x adaptor, 2 flashes and a transmitter ( you never know when you need to light a larger area or have a portrait shot needed). A large tripod - Manfrotto 055 with a ball head and leveller. She's heavy but nothing will move it.
Feedback
When you go out to shoot , generally you are looking for the big shot, the one that gets it all in. Sometimes, the light is boring and the shot is not going to happen. Then you notice other things around that attract your eye. I love patterns and textures. Shoot them, they can complete the experience of whatever else you went to shoot in the first place.
