Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Washington, North Carolina. It was in the downtown area.
Time
It was about 9AM. Around this area, the fog usually disappears at about 8AM, so I was shocked there was any fog at all.
Lighting
Honestly as far as lighting goes, there was just the sun being covered by the fog.
Equipment
When I took this, I was using a Canon T1i and a Manfrotto tripod. I used a 50mm 1.4.
Inspiration
Since it was really foggy that day, I figured I would go downtown to see what it looked it. I walked for a while and came across this street. I saw how desolate it looked and I loved it. So I set my camera on my tripod and took a photo. As I looked at the back of the camera, I liked what I saw…but I was still unhappy with it. I saw a couple walking by, took a photo…it looked a little better, but I still was unhappy. I waited for about 10 minutes and this older gentleman started walking by and took a left turn down the street. I fired a shot and this image was made. Now THAT made me happy.
Editing
As far as post processing, the only thing I did here was warmed it up a little more. I'm a sucker for warm tones.
In my camera bag
As of now: Canon 5D 50mm 1.8 85mm 1.8 CF Cards Pocket Wizards
Feedback
One of the things taking this photo has taught me is patience. Sometimes waiting for an image can be really rewarding in my opinion.
