Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Tahiti, in the Intercontinental Hotel's gardens. The island in the background is Moorea.
Time
Around 5 pm, the light was already starting to be quite low.
Lighting
Light in French Polynesia is quite amazing but also quite difficult to work with. Being the tropics, it's either very low or very strong. The sun rises and sets amazingly quickly, you don't get long sunsets. You have to work quickly because in less than half an hour the sun is already too high, or it's already gone and it's night time. But that day we were blessed with a beautiful sunset.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark IV and 24-70 mm lens.
Inspiration
The children. They were tired and just wanted to play, they didn't care about pictures. They kept pulling mommy's dress. So I just went along!
Editing
My usual post-processing: exposure, contrast, but I also added a bit of color to the sky.
In my camera bag
My Canon 5D Mark IV, a 24-70mm, a 70-200, a flashlight and a white umbrella are my essentials. I don't go out shooting without them.
Feedback
Working with kids isn't always easy. They have their own agenda and don't care much about yours. But they are an endless source of inspiration and fun ideas. Just go with it!
