Behind The Lens

Location

Photo was taken in Park of Nature Savica in Zagreb, Croatia.

Time

It was early in the morning and the Sun was just up.

Lighting

This morning was perfect. All components was there ... the light, the atmosphere and I was inspired with all. Most of the photos taken this morning are against the sun and I like challenging light conditions because photos are more interesting.

Equipment

Camera is Olympus E 3 + zoom Zuiko 12-60 mm. and all pictures (they are more on my profile) are handheld. I like to go light with gear and I rarely use tripod or flash.

Inspiration

Everything you can see on the photo was inspired me and I had to be quick, because swan was pretty fast approaching me.

Editing

Yes I did. Original was brighter a bit and I used levels in PS, added some contrast, with Topaz filters removed a bit of noise and added some sharpening. That was all. This is my average way to proces my photos, nothing fancy.

In my camera bag

Olympus E3 and E 520 (not always) zooms Zuiko 12-60mm and 50-200mm and Zuiko OM 500 f;8 refleks (sometimes). For macro I use Zuiko 50 mm macro with or without 2x Teleconverter and OM macro rings with OM Zuiko 50 mm f:1,8. This is my gear + Olympus flash. I don't carry all the gear all the time.

Feedback

Nothing special as advice. Use your gear and don't be afraid of bad light. Today photo editing software can do miracles.
