Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken at my home , saw a beautiful crow and had to shoot with my camera , couldn't miss the chance to loose such a beauty

Time

I remembered I was taking sip of tea suddenly heard chirping of bird , than I went upstairs through the window I saw a crow sitting and gazing around , singing in his own world , it was around 5pm when I took this shot , lots of birds were around but this one especially caught my eye

Lighting

The lighting was natural as it was falling upon bird , I knew the exactly how I want to do it so I decided it will be I'm black and white because that's how it will be artistic as " black is poetic" in every way ,you can't get that emotions from colors as from black and white , so the light was pure sunlight falling upon him ,I felt lucky

Equipment

I used my canon 1200D kit 55-250 lens

Inspiration

I wanted to take black and white photo , as I was planning to do so from long time to shoot Beautiful bird as I had imagined in my mind ,how it will be ,how it will look like , frame everything as I imagined I put into this photo the best part was that emptiness in that photo ,the emotions one can feel looking at the photo , the reflection of yourself nothing but plain image composition as in real life as you have came alone and will die alone

Editing

Yes , it was a color photograph so I decided to make it into black and white , when I was shooting I knew it will be black and white as I mentioned earlier because it will be so natural and beautiful. So I just used simple software put reflection and vola !

In my camera bag

Most of time it's my phone which is lgv30 it beast plus it's always handy as you never miss your shot wherever possible but my main cam is canon 1200D and I use prime lens 50mm and kit lens 18-55, 55-250. Anyone can be a photographer you just need sth to shoot ,it doesn't matter whether it's expensive or cheap , artist know how to shoot , If you're creative you can shoot any photograph with any camera that's what I believe

Feedback

I would say just capture the photo whenever you feel need or like just don't miss the opportunity , wherever you are whatever the time it is just shoot it , think of the frame at the time of capturing how you want to do it ,what thoughts you can put into frame afterwards that's what matters ,your imagination and creativity and patience ofcourse .
