Behind The Lens

Location
This simple yet powerful shot was taken on the beautiful pristine beach near Charley Young's on Maui. Later in the afternoon while the bright sun dimmed yet not a sunset I took this shot
Time
I was walking along on Charley Young Beach and saw this little abandoned boat at the far end late in the afternoon. You can always find subjects along the west side beaches on Maui.
Lighting
All natural light and as you can see not yet a sunset. Lighting was great for this shot as Maui's natural sunshine often blows out the subjects
Equipment
This was taken with a Sony A 7RII,18-200mm Sel 82000 lens, no flash, as only natural light was needed. Handheld and Patience
Inspiration
What is not inspiring about Maui landscapes, beach scenes, and seascapes? That day I wanted to try something different.I think for me it is about being creative and using My vision to do it. I know in todays world many great shots can be created in the software but I aspire to capture the shot naturally & emphasis it's beauty. I love the simplicity of this shot, barely a soul walking this beach at this time so I took all kinds of different angles and heights. This seemed to work the best
Editing
I did very little post processing only enhancing what is already there pulling out the detail & color. I use Photoshop, Corel, Lightroom& Topaz Labs Plug ins. On this shot I thought I would try an "impassion" brush in Topaz Studio but not at a 100%. This worked well as I was able to mask the boat and keep this subject clear while blurring out the rest, emphasizing the boat. It takes practice to try many types of edits, getting the balance I was able to achieve was perfect
In my camera bag
I primarily use the Sony A 7RII with a SEL 18-200mm F 3.5-6.3 lens and a Sony FE 90mm F 2.8 Macro. I also carry a backup , the Canon Rebel 5 but rarely use it anymore. It is always wise to carry MORE. In my backpack extras of everything including car chargers, plenty of batteries and memory cards as I shoot in RAW format.I carry also the tripod and monopod with me and an umbrella, flashlight, and Macro tubes.Always learning and so my equipment grows with it. I don't forget the business cards and ipad. I try to be prepared for any shot that could come along
Feedback
I am a landscape photographer primarily so I need Patience and lots of it at times! Take risks, shoot outside your comfort zone and get creative, get low, get high, shoot in the dark, shade and sun, shoot everything and then go with what feels right for YOU.I have learned alot more since taking this photo as I always am inspired to keep learning. Look at the angle, composition, what is it you want your viewers to know about the subject? Do you have tripod, optics clean, batteries, card in place? In other words I have learned to be in the moment and really think and compose the shot I want. Sometimes I do and sometimes I forget but no matter what I just do it! I always stay open to learn more! I try to really pay attention to what I love, the creativity and not be a cookie cutter version of someones else ideas, I like to create my own
