Behind The Lens

Location
"The Needle" is a famous "you have to go to" spot on Madeira island, PT
Time
This shot was taken during sunset
Lighting
First i used a ND64 filter to smoothen out the motion of the sea. On top of that i used a ND8 grey filter to get more details in the foreground without overexposing the sky
Equipment
I used my Sony A7III, a 14mm 1.8 GM @f16, tripod, nd64 & nd8
Inspiration
All places on Madeira are inspiring. But this one is special, the scene, the object, the mood at sunset, those rocks. Its just like that you know you have a great shot before you even took it.
Editing
Yes, but only some slight micro-adjustements in blacks, whites, highlights and saturation
In my camera bag
Most of the time only my A7 III, a 14mm 1.8 (I just like the look of this ultra wide angle lens) and if there is a second lens with me, it´s a 28-75 2.8 standard zoom.
Feedback
Know your gear and edit the shot in your mind before you even take it.
