Behind The Lens

This picture was taken in one of the first morning hours of the new 2020 in the very heart of Siberia in the middle reaches of the Angara River. It was a very frosty morning. The thermometer showed -30 Celsius. But it was worth it.
This photo was taken just before sunrise. At this time, on a frosty day, a very interesting light with a gradation of shades from deep blue to delicate pink. Photo taken on January 2 at 12:07 pm
Most photographers, including myself, prefer the early morning and evening hours. At this time, the light is soft, the shadows do not provide a sharp contrast. Everything in the frame looks three-dimensional. In addition, at this time, the cut-off pattern can add additional meaning to the frame.
I was use DSRL Canon 60D, Sigma 10-20 lens
As always, the beauty of nature inspires me. I work a lot as photographers on the set of Baikal and Siberia. It would seem that my eye should already get used to the surrounding landscapes. But every time I am genuinely surprised by what I see. I can't imagine my life in the city.
For post-processing, I use Lightroom (crop, tonal and color correction, noise and sharpness correction). Sometimes I use Picasa 3 to apply filters. I like this application due to the fact that I can control the settings of the filters and once again adjust the sharpness and blur at the end of processing.
In my camera bag
I use Canon DSLRs and several lenses from different manufacturers. Basically these are wide-angle lenses with a zoom of 10-22 mm. Also, for shooting landscapes, I use telephoto lenses, which allow me to shoot very interesting subjects. Naturally, in my backpack I always have a set of ND and gradient filters that I use to soften the picture in bright light.
Take pictures! Look for the new, train your vision to notice the unusual in the ordinary!
