Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at Virginia Beach
Time
It was around noon time on a sunny day
Lighting
The lighting under a strong afternoon sun is usually harsh, but the pure excitement of the photo - I believe - overcomes that.
Equipment
This was hand held with a Nikon D80 and a Nikkor 80-200 2.8 lens at f7.1 and 1/800 sec
Inspiration
The fun we were having as a family on this vacation was tremendous. I immediately want to capture each moment. My kids were wave-surfing and trying to aim for me as I tried to keep the camera dry and capture the action.
Editing
The post processing was mostly contrast, white balance and sharpening.
In my camera bag
I usually have a Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor 80-200ED f2.8, Tamron 28-75 f2.8 and a Tokina 11-16 F2.8. I have other equipment but at minimum I carry these.
Feedback
Sometimes just having the camera is enough. In this shot, there is not much planning or control over the shot, but having the camera with me allowed me to shot the moment. Sand and sea water are not the best things to expose expensive equipment to, but taking the chance usually means you're capturing moments that others cannot.
