Behind The Lens

Location
Avila Beach wharf in Avila Beach, California.
Time
mid afternoon
Lighting
This was just natural daylight.
Equipment
Sony Nex-6 17-55mm lens.
Inspiration
I was walking on the wharf and I noticed the big straw hat. I took a shot from about 50 feet away, and later discovered that he just took a shot of me at the same time. As I passed him, I raised my camera and quickly snapped this photo.
Editing
The only post-processing was some cropping and "sharpening" on iphoto. I also used the in-camera HDR setting.
In my camera bag
Sony nex-6, 17-55mm, 14mm, 55-210mm and fish-eye lens. I always carry extra memory cards and batteries. I have a tripod but rarely use it; I just seem to swing it around!
Feedback
If something catches your eye, you have to act fast. Do not hesitate. If you have eye contact with them afterward, just smile and give them a thumbs up! Then, keep moving.
