Behind The Lens

Location

the photograph was taken in my garden.

Time

photo was taken early afternoon when the light has warmed up a little.

Lighting

I was trying to capture the back-lighting of subject, whilst still keeping detail in forground

Equipment

Fujifilm X10 1/280 f2.2

Inspiration

Its something I love to do, just wander outside into my garden with the camera and see what little critters are about.

Editing

No post processing - It's something I try not to do too much of.

In my camera bag

Alongside the X10, I now have an Fujifilm XT-1 which I'm in the process of learning to operature. Plus my IPhone camera of course!

Feedback

You can get up close and personal with little critters without having expensive macro gear. It takes a little practice for a steady hand, an eye for good lighting plus a love of nature.
