Fun. Love it.

Behind The Lens

Location
At the Tennessee Aquarium's butterfly garden, downtown Chattanooga
Time
9:00 am
Lighting
The butterfly garden has a transparent ceiling, providing perfect ambient light. The background is the white shirt worn by the man holding the baby.
Equipment
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Because the butterfly didn't remain in the same place, I didn't use a tripod.
Inspiration
This photo is what I call a "touch" piece. I imagined that the butterfly's feet might have tickled.
Editing
For this photograph, II did not do any post-processing. The light exposed the butterfly's wing perfectly, throwing the rest of the image into light tones, which made the wing stand out.
In my camera bag
Camera; camera's instruction book; tripod; three lenses; note pad and pen
Feedback
Whether or not you're inspired, venture out anyway, and sooner or later you will find a subject. From Louis Pasteur: "In the fields of observation, chance favors the prepared mind."
