Behind The Lens

Location
I take this photo in my yard. i have there some trees and in this case it´s a apple tree.
Time
The image was taked during the morning with the sun light on the rigt side of the flower. i used a small reflector to balance the light.
Lighting
The green and blue color on the background was from sky and others trees. there was a sunny day and with a a wide open diafragm it that helps to get some beautiful backgrounds.
Equipment
I used a Nikkor 18-105 lens with one 4 x lens adapter in the front. it was a bit dificult to get the image. I used also a tripod and reflector.
Inspiration
I really love see flowers and blossom. the Spring time is very nice to get beautiful images and it can be done with simple flowers like this one. It is a simple flower from a simple tree.
Editing
Yes, i use a lot LR. In this case i use LR to control white and lights in the frame. There was some small areas a bit darker that i boost to bring a vivid image.
In my camera bag
Nikon D 7100, Nikkor 50mm af 1.8D, Nikkor 18-105 AF, Industar 50 3.5, HElios 44m-2, 4x lens, reflector, nd filter and color filters, and a bottle of water.
Feedback
Sometimes take images like this requires some patience and whait for the perfect conditions. Probably it can´t be done in winter or autumn. In my case, since i have a macro lens, yet, i have to improve and used some others lens like a 4x lens that i adapt. It´s more dificult but is good to learn and get great images too. Hope you like my images. I will show here some of my improvements and future works.
