Behind The Lens

The photo was taken on the premises of Stora Sundby Castle, a beautiful castle which is located in south Sweden, 2 hours west of Stockholm.
I took this shot during my summer vacation last year on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
Since I took the shot on a sunny afternoon I didn‘t have the softest light conditions, but the photo turned out pretty good anyway! The lesson that I learned is that „there is no bad light“!
For this shot I used my Canon EOS R with the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. No other equipment was involved.
For me Stora Sundby Castle is a very impressive building. The architecture symbolizes a calendar - 4 large towers for the seasons, 12 smaller towers for the months of the year, 52 rooms for the weeks and one window for each day of the year (365).
I did some basic adjustments in Lightroom. E.g. bringing down the highlights and up with the shadows, adding some contrast and saturation.
In my camera bag
I always use my Canon EOS R and have three lenses for different situations. In most situations I use the RF 35-70mm, but emphasizing details in landscapes or buildings I also love to use my telezoom 70-300mm. In addition I use my ultra-wide angle lens 14-35mm e.g. for night skies or architectural photos.
I wanted to capture the castle with the view from the gardens so I can take some of the colors of the flowers in the foreground. That turned out to look really cool on the photo! I think it‘s always a good idea to think about the foreground as well!
