Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in Hallstatt, Austria. It was my one-day visit to that little magical town. It was one of my favorite adventures.
I took the photo in the early morning, right after sunrise when the light was falling at a good angle. That is why the shadows are very soft and the colors are phenomenal. It was about 8 o'clock in the morning.
I wanted to show the expression, to see on the one hand how spring is coming and on the mountain tops it was still a harsh winter. The contrast between these two parts of the photo led me to show the morning fog in the middle of the photo, but also the sky that arranged its clouds fantastically just for my photo.
This photo was taken with a Canon 6D & 24-70mm F4L lens. Other equipment was not used. .
Hallstatt itself is very unique, and each part of it is a story in itself. I saw a lot of photos from other angles, so it occurred to me to try this one, which I haven't seen yet, and it will turn out to be one of the most beautiful angles and shots I have chosen. When I see this photo it takes me back to where I was standing and where I was thinking what I could do.
Photography is editing in Adobe Lightroom and Luminar 4 photo editing programs. I used shadow, color and gradient tool correction so I could get perfect transitions between the shadow and the sunny part of the photo.
In my camera bag
My bag is always ready and always full of equipment. What I'm not going without is definitely my Canon 6D, 24-70F4L lens and 50mm f1.8. In addition, the bag always contains my Dji Mavic Air 2 drone, FeiyuTech AK2000S gimbal, K&F Concept filters, Go Pro Hero 8 and one indispensable item, which is a SunwayFoto tripod.
Whenever you take photos, you have to be motivated, ready to improvise, be creative. Take hundreds of photos until you get what you imagine, be persistent in your intention. Photography is the expression of each individual, what you see in my photography is me, in your case it will be you. Creativity, perseverance and desire, that is the key to everything.
