Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at Wormslow Plantation in Savannah, GA. It is at the entrance to the historic plantation and is one of the most photographed places in Savannah. It is a 1.5 mile unpaved road lined with over 400 oak trees.
Time
We arrived around 11:00 A.M. And started shooting about half an hour later. This photo was taken a little before noon.
Lighting
I wanted the sun to be high, as the light coming in from overhead...through the canopy of trees made for some nice shadows and contrasts.
Equipment
Canon Rebel Eos, Canon EFF 18-55mm lens, uv filter.
Inspiration
I love taking photos of the places I travel. Wormslow is photographed a lot, and they have postcards with this road on them. I wanted to capture that kind of image myself.
Editing
I adjusted the brightness and contrast, as well as increased the saturation of the green and yellow hues a bit to bring out the leaves, ivy, and highlights from the sunlight.
In my camera bag
My everyday bag has my camera (Canon T5i...I've upgraded since this trip), a 18-55 mm lens, a 35mm lens, and a 75-300mm telephoto lens. I have a set of filters that carry for various light conditions, a set of Macro attachments, a 0.43x58 mm wide angle lens, an extra battery and chargers, and a cleaning kit. I also keep a pack of gum, sunscreen, a bottle of Motrin (because being on my feet all day tends to hurt after a while), and a little change or cash for water or snacks if that's possible. (Wow...I didn't realize so much fit in my little bag!). It's s backpack styled bag...so it's a lot easier to carry than my old shoulder bag, and it doesn't get in the way like the shoulder bag used to.
Feedback
First...take a lot of shots. Your first one probably won't be the grand shot you're looking for. Also...focus is tricky on this one. I picked the furthest spot I could see at the far end of the road. I went with an ISO of 600 for this shot, as the light was really good and I was sitting pretty still, but I also did not have a tripod. So... I would recommend a tripod, if you've got one. I didn't use one, like I said... but there was a big sign by the entrance that was conveniently centered on the road, and I leaned on it to steady my shot. Also, there's a lot to see in the shot. I have other angles that are slightly different that seem to change the whole composition. Don't be afraid to look around and try to see what everyone else may not.
