Behind The Lens

Location
The shot was taken lying on my tummy on the lawn by my garden, I had been looking on the web as to how I can do this technique and pretty much followed their directions. [ I have done this since and use a table set up lol much easier]
Time
About a half hour after sun rise was suggested by the article, so I got up early, set up and started taking shots - I didn't really know what I was doing so I took a great many using different settings, angles and DOF - it really was hit and miss - I was lucky, but I tried everything I could to get it right!
Lighting
Early morning or late afternoon, apparently, is the best times if you aren't using studio lighting. I had to get a low angle to get this so it made sense to start there ..
Equipment
Hand held camera as I was changing position often, no flash. I used a bowl of water to dip the flower in as spraying water, as suggested, just rolled off too fast! Also a HEAP of patience as this isn't an easy thing to grasp :) Canon EOS 700D, Canon Macro lens EF-S 60mm.
Inspiration
I had seen so many intriguing photos on VB with this technique, I just had to know how and do it ;)
Editing
Crop and balance is all, if it's not in the photo it's too late!
In my camera bag
I am still grasping what it is I really need so have, as yet, the basics. Canon EOS 700D, Prime Canon EFS 18-55mm lens, Canon Macro lens EF-S 60mm, Canon EFS 55-250mm. I also carry a small ground sheet plastic/fabric ,squirt bottle, cleaning kit. Spare batteries ans cards.
Feedback
If you want to do something similar I would firmly suggest you check the web where there is a wealth of info free. I am just trying as many ideas,strategies, genre's etc I can with my basic kit as this is a hobby.
