Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in front of our workshop in Enkhuizen, Holland.
Time
It was about 2 PM.
Lighting
I wanted to create a photo of the crucifix against a thin part in the clouds to catch the best natural light on it. I held the small wooden crucifix in my left hand and the camera in my right hand. I had to reach quite far to get the right distance. After a few minutes I found the right cloud combination for the setting I had in mind, a nice light spot around the cross framed by dramatic clouds.
Equipment
I have a Lumix DMC-TZ100, all my photos are taken with this little miracle of a camera...The best thing about this camera is that it has a good Leica lens and it is very easy to carry with you because it practically fits in your back pocket.
Inspiration
I have a small collection of wooden crucifixes in our workshop and wanted to create a dramatic photo of one of them against a cloudy sky with light surrounding the figure. The crucifix is only 20 cm. long (8 inch.) but photographed like this it looks like a giant statue!
Editing
I did any post-processing with Lightroom I enhanced the accents a bit, added some contrast to the clouds and I cropped the photo to the size and composition I liked most.
In my camera bag
I don't have a bag of equipment at all, only my Lumix DMC-TZ100, a wonderful intelligent automatic pocketcamera wich practically fits in my backpocket. It shows that you do not have to use expensive and big cameras to achieve nice results...
Feedback
Take the time and effort to look around you and be surprised to find that one can take a nice photo in almost every square foot anywhere! In this case I wanted to take a photo into the light with heavy clouds framing the crucifix. I waited for a thin cloud covering the sun not to get an overexposed spot. Take the time and look carefully for that one moment when you get the clouds and lightspot just the way you want it. Make sure all the surrounding distractions are gone, to achieve maximum focus on the subject you want to show... If you look at a subject to photograph, you have to try to realise what you want to achieve, Try to find the good light, the right point of view and the best composition... And most of all, take more shots with slightly different settings so you can choose the best one, once you get home and open your laptop when the magic of today's digital world begins... I always crop it later into the size and composition I like best. Crop and edit the photo in different ways, so you can choose the best one the next day when you can have a fresh look at them!
