Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken by myself at the traditional village in the North of Vietnam.
Time
I took this shot during day time, especially at noon. Because the sunlight was strong for the local people to dry them out.
Lighting
Not at all. As I mentioned to you early, when the sunlight was strong for the workers to dry them out easily.
Equipment
I didn't use tripod and flash at all because the sunlight was strong.
Inspiration
This shot inspired me because the background was full of red color and real Vietnamese daily life. That's it.
Editing
I am always using Lightroom, Camera Raw and Photoshop to process for all my images. In fact, I don't use much Photoshop because I am very careful to capture my shot well in advance.
In my camera bag
I am usually carrying 2 Nikon cameras and some lenses in my bags. For example, Sigma 12-24mm, Nikon 24-120mm, Nikon 70-200mm.
Feedback
You should explore more remote areas so that you can see something new and different subjects. That's all about it.
