Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken from my hotel room window on an overnight stopover in Dubai.
Time
This was shot in the morning around 9am.
Lighting
I was thankful that the sun was rising on the opposite side of the building. I would have loved to have captured this shot during sunrise or sunset but I had arrived around 3am and opted for the extra sleep instead!
Equipment
This was shot in hand with a Nikon D810, which was brand new to me at the time. I used the Sigma 35mm Art Series lens - which I absolutely adore. It is without a doubt one of the most loved lenses I have.
Inspiration
In all honesty, I had slept in for breakfast so I decided to distract my hunger pangs with some photography! I was aiming to capture the interesting star shape in the architecture. The train passing was a lovely bonus! As soon as I saw this view and interesting concrete structure outside my window I knew that I had to try to capture it.
Editing
Of course the photo has been changed to black and white and small tweaks to the exposure and sharpness.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Sigma Art Series 35mm and 50mm lenses. These are possibly the most stunning portrait lenses that I have ever shot with. The vibrancy and depth to them allow for editing to be minimal, which I love. I always carry two charged spare batteries - although this camera is incredible for battery life and rarely do I require a change. I took around 350 photographs across 8 hours this day and it is still 4/5 full! Always I carry a couple of spare SD cards, a lens cleaning cloth and a circular polarising filter. There is also a remote shutter living inside my bag, although I've yet to use it. I really prefer photography that is "hands-on". I love to move around a lot to play with angles and perspective, rather than tripod work. So I justify carrying three lenses because I negate a tripod! My bag is also never short of a snack - it's vital to keep your energy up when on a long shoot. And spare contact lenses.... just in case!
Feedback
When I am asked for photography advice, I always answer the same way. Tune into your environment and capture what your heart is most drawn to. When you are in love with your subject matter, the photography will come naturally. I describe myself as an intuitive photographer, my fingers just seem to know what settings to use in the moment! I honestly believe that intuition and connection are the two fundamentals of photography. Learning theory is important and I believe it will take my photography to the next level when I do. But, for now, I shoot with my heart.
