Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my garden I had not long had my macro lens and was keen to give it a go
Time
it was early afternoon and very hot and bright which worked well to get a fast shutter speed.
Lighting
I sat with the sun behind me as not to get any shadows
Equipment
At the time I was using a Canon 5D Mark 2 and a 150mm sigma lens. It was taken hand held.
Inspiration
I love being with nature from tiny insects to big mamals. I think when you start looking through a macro lens the world becomes very interesting.
Editing
There was very little post processing, I pulled the highlights down and cropped it, thats it
In my camera bag
Current my bag has a Canon 5d mark 4 and Mark 2. Lenses include canon 400mm Sigma 150mm macro Canon 18-55mm Canon 70-200mm
Feedback
Patients and lots of it. If I was to try this shot again I would use a tripod and keep the flower in focus and wait
