When your time comes to capture an amazing landscape, Kelvin advises that you should never rush the shot. Take the time to get a feel of the location. Truly examine it and find what aspects make it special. For the shot above, it was the thin layer of water on the black sand that created a reflection. To help balance the exposure of the shot, Kelvin added a GND and a ND filter. This helped enhance the overall colours of the composition.
Travelling to Iceland had been a dream of Kelvin’s for some time, so he wasn’t going to take any chances. Kelvin brought along his favourite ultra-wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens and the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED, along with his main camera, the D800E and the D750 as backup. However, equally as important is bringing along good wet weather gear. Rain and wind is common place, and even if you’re shooting near a waterfall you’re bound to get some spray, so make sure your equipment stays dry. Kelvin claims the most useful bit of kit was a humble lens cloth, used to get rid of water droplets on the lens.
