Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo in my home during coronavirus outbreak. That period was a very good time to start using any indoor objects and study light.

Time

The picture was taken after the sunset, when no natural light was available.

Lighting

The picture was taken after the sunset, when no natural light was available. However, I tried to give some artifficial light in some angles as to give more expression to the picture.

Equipment

This picture was shot with a Sony a6000, using a 35mm, f1.8 lens and a tripod.

Inspiration

Due to coronavirus outbreak, most of us we have been “locked” inside our houses in March-April. During that period, the televisions showed us how humans were reacting in front of the virus, as a first instinct. Therefore, I wanted to picture the humans feeling when seeing a toilet paper and how valuable this item became during the pandemic times.

Editing

The picture was taken in RAW format so I have adjusted the brightness, added some vignette and some sharpness due to the low light conditions.

In my camera bag

I always carry with me my Sony A7II with the kit lens but I hope to upgrade to a Samyang 35mm, f2.8 lens soon.

Feedback

I believe that this coronavirus time taught us to be more patient and to appreciate our surroundings and so, all of us became more creatives. Therefore, take your time to study your surroundings, light, different angles and take your shot.
